…d-day, 6jun13 – no, no, football – champions league…

…as the us doj rids the grateful world of all that is bad and naughty (except in the us), we can indulge, safely…

Secure in the knowledge that the US is to rendition Fifa to the US (and for the US and England) and the good of mankind and womankind, with such great serenity, we can reminisce a tad. This surely would have, and still has, the football/‘soccer’-crazy US dumbstruck in amazement,

Now that bears investigation by the US Crime Busters (USCB). There  has to be skulduggery involved here. Nobody from planet earth can do what that gentleman did, Illegal alien? Clearly, for starters…And just when composure seeks to return and memory can recover, calls with a reminder, ‘Remember when…’

Yes, today, Juventus of Tevez and Pirlo but no Chiellini and company meet the Barcelona of MSN with Dani. Champions League Final. If Barça can and did get by Bayern, and if, if today Juve is even ever slightly off…

…ergo, that is why fifa should be us-owned, and wc 2018 and 2022 should be in the us and england. logic? made in us…

…literally…

One lesson in the World Cup 2014, nothing is guaranteed if Messi and di Maria are at all loose on the field. In any case, Argentina, Celestial(!)

Which means, to win,  Belgium (de Rode Duivels!!!) with some key defenders available should have to have at least two up in the final minute against a team even without Aguero- fortunately they won’t have to face a (historic German?) defense or goalie like the US’s…

…as for the formidable Team USA whose players are better known outside than inside the US where football is something other than football, the team acquitted itself remarkably, spectacularly well – despite the cynical support of the exceptional class of self-promoters (‘No, no, Team USA is in white. that one is Dempsey. That one is Howard – he’s called the goalie’…)…


…to whom the world cup 2014…

…’as the days dwindle down to a precious few…’

2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

We have The Guardian doing its part, World Cup 2014 countdown – live!

As is TeleSur,  España ya está en Brasil con la ilusión de ganar su segundo título. Spain is looking for a repeat of their victory.

So far, so good. [HT. This we would have missed.] And when dumb is a severe understatement, enter Huffington Post, and into, of all areas, football. This ‘nugget’, a bit of infantile nonsense on the subject of dumb and dumber – the Huffington Post (HuffPo) deserves a special nod. Now a chaotic, confused and confusing website, shill for one of the political duopoly, it presumes to cover everything and classify everything into categories, compartments and sub-compartments, on and on.
