Koalas sleep for 20 out of 24 hours a day. I have had a very slow, sleep filled weekend. And boy did I really need this weekend of nothing. I normally try and pack so much into my days off that its been quite a while since I actually felt this rested. And strangely plans […]
No not the Monday Blues, but I have those too. I am talking about the football club, The Blues. Chelsea. Yes I am fan. I started following them in think around 2002/3 when they were under the helm of Claudio Ranieri. I was very impressed with the team then. As much as I loved Ranieri, I […]
If you know football (that’s soccer anyone American), you would have heard of the Ballon d’or. It’s basically given out by FIFA to the best footballer of any given year. Guess who was awarded it 2014? Cristiano Ronaldo. I mean seriously? He’s likely to most commercialised player of the year, I will give him that. […]
I am sure you saw it coming, a final (probably final) post on the world cup. But before we get into the finals this morning, lets me get everything I have wanted to say but didn’t manage to blog about out of the way first. Firstly while it would have been like a fairy tale […]
The Germans won. All is good with the world. Except there’s no more world cup to watch, so essentially there’s no more excitement in my life for now.
Miroslav Klose is now the top goal scorer in World cup matches, he has beaten Ronaldo (the Brazilian one) with 16 goals in 4 tournaments. Also, I am blogging because as much as I am a German fan, I cannot watch the Brazil team get thrashed anymore. It’s sad (thinking of taking back my apology). […]
Day 1 or the first 2 matches of the quarter finals are over. Very interesting match ups for all 4 games I have to say. I was all pumped last night to watch France vs Germany and Brazil vs Colombia. It was the weekend (though I am working) I figured what the hell, lets watch […]
Just further adds to the point in my previous post that the Italian football team are just nice. And that the referee in the last world cup game was unfairly harsh on them.
Since my earlier post, I have watched more matches and some teams for the first time and have observations about 2 more teams to add. Argentina: I just watched their match against Iran. I have to say, while there still was a fair number of questionable tackles during the match, I do think they are playing less […]
Forget the Italians in my previous post, I have a new favourite moment of the world cup. Would be very hard to top this. I love Australians, they’re a nice bunch (well most of them anyway).
