Yesterday morning I could not see that there was any possibility for anything other than a World Cup final featuring Brazil v Argentina. What do I know? Nothing, apparently.
I hardly know who to pick now. With apologies to my late father, who I trust is not reading from the Great Beyond, I really like this German team a lot. It's true!! Father forgive me, for I am sinning. But I like them, I really like them. I believe they can beat Spain. And we are looking at a Germany v Netherlands final. Tres cool.
And I'd have to stick with the Netherlands to win, because they've never done so before, and also, well, because of the War. Heh. I haven't totally forgotten about the War.
Oddest line of the day belongs to, who else, John Helm, about, who else, Maradona. I paraphrase a bit here: "He cuts a lonely figure sometimes. And a demented one too sometimes."
Now is that nice?
