June 28 – 2008
Well, he’s locked up a profitable tournament – par, really, for the Czech man. To make things interesting, we’re giving him a $20 mythical wager on the final (he now stands at $141.78). Let’s see if he can close.
18-12: pretty damn good, if I do say myself! Should be an entertaining final, and I’m still pondering my pick as I write this. By the way, I watched Portland play Carolina in a USL matchup on Friday. Has anyone watched one of these games lately?? Well, it’s quite fast, out of control, and a strange mix of some really good players and some really bad ones. But the most interesting aspect of the game was when one of the announcers compared a relationship between two of the Portland players to that of Podolski and Schweinsteiger. WHAT? That guy do crack before the game?? Onwards….
I’m torn. Looks like no Ballack for Germany and no Villa for Spain. Some might suggest the loss of these two offset each other but I beg to differ as I believe Ballack to be A LOT more important to his side than Villa to his. By no means am I suggesting Villa isn’t the quality of Ballack, rather Spain have more on the bench to make up for the loss.
Both teams have been quite good going forward but I think the difference is in the back and in goal. I’m an Arsenal fan but I hate Jens Lehman with all my heart; that fucking guy is the biggest mental midget on the face of this planet. It also seems to me that the German back line often get caught in bad positions; I think it’s partly because the outside backs get caught going forward and partly because the center-backs are slow. Really slow.
Something is pulling me towards the Germans though; it’s that sixth sense if you will– intuition. But fuck intuition. I love Torres and so I’m on Spain. Spain win this game and the Czech bows out at 19-12 for the tourney.
Until we meet again…
