Who Knew?

Part 2: Caught the opening match of the FIFA world cup yesterday, Germany vs. Costa Rica. (There's nothing better when you're doing some repetitive cardio exercise, like biking, than watching soccer/football.) So, Germany pretty much dominated in all aspects of the game.
Including diving and acting like drama queens.
The world is all upside down when the Teutons embarrass themselves reacting to phantom hits, whereas the Latin players try to play with skill alone. So far, the Oscar for best acting during an athletic event goes to Germany. Granted, I haven't seen Argentina or Brazil yet, so the jury is still out. And, let us not forget my favourites, Italy, whose players are so dehydrated by the end of every game from shedding gallons of crocodile tears.
It's going to be a great World Cup. I can hardly wait.

Claude Lemieux could have been a great soccer star...

I wonder, does Italy has a national Rugby team?

Totally unrelated, but it might be of interest.
