Mr. Green in the Goal without the Ball

Now that I know the Mushrooms family has seen England v USA, it is safe to discuss The Goal.
It's a shame Wide World of Sports isn't on anymore because that footage of the England goalkeeper watching the ball trickle over the line was a classic case of Agony of Defeat.

It is so rare that I am supporting the Americans in any sporting event that I must take a moment to shout: USA! USA!

And Go Ghana!

The Australians are on in an hour or so. Are their fans nuts or what? Almost, but not quite, as kookoo as the Dutch.

Couple of extra things: Orange boots? Is there any other event where so many men would wear orange boots with pride. Well, maybe at "Pride". But nowhere else. I'm not a fan of the orange boots. I hope Cannavaro won't be wearing orange boots.

And lastly, the horns. Those goddamn horns. Stop them. I can't remember what they are called. But just stop blowing them. For 2 minutes. Just 2 minutes, please.
UPDATE: Vuvuzelas. That's the name of the goddamn horns.

a word from U14 word: all the boys have boots of varying colours--mushroom's jr's are green and yellow--one kid on his team just got a pair of purple soccer cleats--said his coach: "it takes a real man to wear these"
hear, hear
as for english green--poor bugger
agony of defeat indeed!
