spain’s win proves my brilliance

Several weeks ago, dear readers, I predicted Spain would win the European cup and that Torres would be responsible, despite my admitted ignorance when it comes to international tournaments. I showed that ignorance with my fantasy team, coming in dead last in my pool. True, I never updated my team after day one, but as Saint likes to point out, that’s not a valid excuse. I accept that. I still think the rules of the ESPN Soccernet game were terrible and confusing.

I also predicted weeks ago that Donadoni was not long for the role as capo di tutti capo. I was joined by about 300 million others in that prediction, so I can’t pat myself on the back too much for that one.

Another prediction that came true was that Bangers would profit from running the pool somehow. Which he did. He didn’t win, but still managed to clear $40 or so by ripping off a bunch of people. Well done asshole.

We are now into the dreaded summer doldrums, where we have to content ourselves with stories about transfers, agents, top-up fees, and bar(ton) fights. When is the Community Shield match????

Ugliest Men in Europe, part 2

carrying on from Friday’s post, here are a few more hideous faces from the tournament.

the UGLIEST man in EuropeCarlos Puyol, Defender, Spain

Not too much to say here. Pictures speak a thousand words, they say. In this case, I wish they would shut the fuck up. The scary thing is that this is his official team picture from ueafa.com. THIS IS THE BEST HE EVER LOOKS.

who knew italians could be so ugly?Mauro Camoronese, Midfielder, Italy

I didn’t think it was possible for an Italian to be so ugly, and it turns out I’m right. He’s a naturalized Italian, hailing from Argentina via Mexico. Explains a lot.

OK, so he’s not as hideous as Pujol, but his game is certainly ugly. as was that of the rest of the Italia 08 team. 11 men in the box at all times. Good fucking riddance.

Francois Ribery, Midfielder, France.

??????????????????

Hakan Yakin, Midfielder, Switzerland

A little known fact about Hakan is that he used to be the lead singer for Dead or Alive.

At 31, his best playing days are behind him, but he has a long career of abducting children ahead of him.
