Yep, I can see what they mean...... or maybe not....

NY Post headline photo....

Good, but not as wonderfully telling as this one....

But anyway, the World Cup, it seems, is determined to continue, so I shall continue watching it. Except not today. Because today is my first non match day since the thing started. And worse, it's a non match day on Thursday as well. Withdrawl......

Although frankly I sat through the Japan-Paraguay 0-0 match thinking they really should have agreed before the 2 hour waste of time and effort that was the match and extra time to just skip it and go straight to flipping a bloody coin.

Spain V Portugal was better, lots of skill everywhere but the whole putting the ball into the net. Nice to see Ronaldo looking a little blubby and red eyed at the end though.

Quarter Finals may be wonderful, but more than likely we'll see four matches of teams desperately trying not to lose and ending up with at least two matches decided by penalties. Personally I can't see past a Brazil v Argentina final with Brazil just steamrollering all before them.

    Didn't quite turn out the way you expected Mr B. I'm now personally hoping for and kind of expecting a Holland/Germany final.
    Hopefully that would be as good as the last game like that I remember where Voller got spat on by Rijkaard.

    So it'll probably be Uruguay/Spain instead.
