I Told You Germany was Awesome

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter
England : 2010 World Cup :: Tim Henman : Every Wimbledon. Wussy, yet rabidly embraced by fans which lead to unrealistic expectations, humiliation. Thanks for coming out. I'm done respecting Wayne Rooney's international game until he scores a World Cup goal. Or at least puts a decent shot on goal. I can't even recall a good scoring chance he had. England wasted EVERYONE's time this World Cup.

That being typed, Germany looked outstanding. I'm still sticking by them to win it all, and I'm still standing by Mesut Oezil looking like Peter Lorre.
Germany is still the most poised-looking team in the front third I have watched in this World Cup. They get eerily calm in the zone, stay patient and create great scoring opportunities. Even when the opportunity isn't great, Klose finds a way to push it past the keeper or Podolski just muscles it through. Youthful exuberance, power, finesse, skill, momentum, maturity, skill, they seem to have all the physical tools and their coaching has been unassailable thus far to boot.

England looked more like Lynndie England than England.

That's how I roll.

England Being England

By: T.R. Slyder,, @AndyDisco on Twitter

Regrettably, I was watching CNN's resident drunk driving homicide expert, Rick Sanchez, interview an Englishman about England's new PM, Davide Cameron making strange bedfellows with the Liberal party and their leader, Nick Clegg.

The Englishman effectively said, "These are two unlikely groups to make friends with one another, we will see how long the honeymoon lasts. Some people think this could explode." After he said as much he threw in, " is what some people in the English media are calling 'The Poisoned Chalice.'."

You can't always count on England to be awesome, but you can ALWAYS count on England to be England. The country that is, not Lynndie England.

That's how I roll.

Which is Wussier?

Which is wussier: England or California?

California has Compton and most of America's MMA guys, but it also has 100% of the nation's population of botox'd, lipo'd and face-lift'd men. Sure England is pretty wussy, but it also has Vinny Jones, most of the Bond Villains, Guy Ritchie movies. And it doesn't nearly the depravity of wussiedom as California's wussiest.

Remember how wussy the ending of "The Wizard" is? And what word triggered that wussy ending? "California!" repeated ad vomitum. That will be a mandatory 5/8ths deduction for your non-wussy point total, California.

That's how I roll.
