Want some really hot pictures of the US men's NT half-naked, sweaty, and dirty? Hmmm, that's what I thought. They are here
. I suddenly feel very patriotic... IN MY PANTS.
I woke up early to watch Denmark play... and then went back to sleep when it became clear that they weren't going to do much. Although I think de Jong should've AT LEAST gotten a yellow for that challenge on Bendtner. He could've broken his freaking ankle! The way these refs have been calling games, he should've been on a plane home. I couldn't watch the Italy game because you know how I feel about Italy? It's pretty much this
.Day 04 — Your favorite club team
Sigh. You know, after Euro 2008 when I first got into club football, there was nothing that made
me choose Liverpool. The choice that makes the most sense for a diehard Germany fan and (then) big Michael Ballack fan was Chelsea, right? And it's true that most German NT fans I know (though not all, obviously) follow Chelsea if they follow any English team (although now there are NO international Germans in England, so IDK). So I don't know what it was about Liverpool that made me fall for them. That 08-09 season was glorious, though, wasn't it? They were all so happy and full of spirit and determination - they embodied the spirit of Liverpool FC. It was difficult not to be drawn in by that team. And then it all went to shit and continues this summer to flow in that general direction. But it's gone to shit before, and it's come back to be amazing again. I've been through much worse with other teams I love. The Chicago White Sox won the World Series in 1906, 1917, ....and then never again until 2005. I have no doubt that Liverpool FC, no matter how long it takes, will always shine on.
SHIT GUYS I'M GETTING MAUDLIN. But, seriously, I think I've come to some kind of peace about transfers. We know half the team is going to jump ship this summer. And it's going to suck. But.... Liverpool FC is so much bigger than any one player, than any eleven players. It's gonna be okay. GROUP HUGS AND POPSICLES ALL AROUND. You know when I think you know you're a real Liverpool fan? When you sing YNWA and you feel that physical ache in your chest of sheer pride and love and joy. Nothing can hurt us when we're singing that.( the rest of the days )
