I HAVE POWER. THANK YOU BABY JESUS. I was reduced to driving around forlornly this morning trying to find somewhere to watch the World Cup. I have also accumulated a lot of knowledge about random subjects due to the Stuff You Should Know and Stuff You Missed in History Class podcasts. Good times. It's a good thing the electricity came back on before the Germany and USA games, because I need the freedom to curse horribly and - in the worst case scenario - cry deeply in the comfort of my own home.

FRANCE TEAM, HOW ARE YOU SUCH FUCKING AWFUL PEOPLE?! Just.... UGH. My World Cup history is not that great, but I can't think of something so blatantly idiotic and wasteful and childish happening before. I mean, I understand that Domenech was a comically awful coach, but absolutely nothing excuses the behavior of these players. I think a lot of them will have destroyed their reputations in football, and with good reason. You know, I was thinking back to Schaftgate and how awful we all thought that was, but, dude, I think even Philipp Lahm would be a little shocked by this shit. Even on his Dry Erase Machination Boards in his Basement of World Domination, he dared not fall to these lows. I have to wonder if a lot of the older players involved in this who would probably be fit for Euro 2012 won't be dropped indefinitely. Any word on whether Evra will keep his captaincy?

And, seriously, one of the things that gets me the most is the hatred for Yoann Gourcuff. It's just... IDEK. He seems like a pretty nice guy, and they just seem to dislike him because he's kind of quiet and keeps to his Bordeaux teammates. AND HE'S SO PRETTY GOD. HOW CAN YOU HATE THAT GORGEOUS FACE? And, look, I am just going to leave you with this picture as a closing argument. Let me know when you can think thoughts again.



.... Why is there not Yoann Gourcuff fic? I would totally read fic with Yoann having a crush on sexy, older Zidane. I think that pairing would actually ruin me.

I'm more or less happy with the results of today's games. I wish it could've been South Africa moving on instead of Uruguay, but they should be proud of their final performance. They were never favored to do very well. SO HAPPY for South Korea. I'll say it now: I don't think Argentina have what it takes to win the entire tournament, but they will probably go far. Their defense is just abysmal though, and that'll be exposed when they play better teams.

NEW ZEALAND! WTF! I love those adorable fuckers. Good on you! I would love to see them advance.

I'm so nervous for tomorrow. I can't deal with another one-two football punch like the last time my two teams played. Also I've started reading Soccernomics. Very interesting so far, and totally spot on about England's entitlement issues.

All I have to say about the latest True Blood episode is: JFC, Eric Northman. JFC.

Also I'm really behind on comments. I had no power! :/
