It only cost me an hour and a half...

...Or How much life sucks if you live in Europe/Africa/South America.

I did it. Israel played England on TV on Saturday night, and I watched the whole thing. Kick after kick. Head butt after head butt. I watched it all. Unless you ask my oldest. He says I missed the first minute and a half, but the next 88.5 minutes surely made up for that emasly minute.

This is part of the qualifying series Eurocup or something like that. These teams are looking to represent their country and bring glory to their nation. And it is duller then a Mandy Moore movie.

Goalie has the ball. Goalie kicks the ball halfway down the field. Person uses his head to bounce it back toward the goalie. Other person uses his heaed to bounce it back. Players knocks ball to ground with feet, and kicks ball. Ball goes back to the goalie.


And repeat.

And repeat again.

And Europeans think this is as good as it gets.

Pathetic. And boring.

Our oldest says that England won anyway because of how much they possessed the ball...

jack, I believe people riot because they're so freakin' bored! They need to riot. After this mind numbing sport, they have to super pinch themselves to make sure they're still alive.

Sure doesn't compare to Brandon Inge going down on 4 pitches with 2 outs and two on in the top of the ninth inning of game 5 of the World Series.

Sorry, I just rewatched it. It was 3 pitches, not 4.
