Andy Murray beat Roddick in straight sets @ Wimbledon that was the only saving grace for England today :)

good to see France thru to the next round in the footie.. Zidane was magic and the Henry goal was rather special :) GO HOME BRASIL !

If it weren't for Brasil's exit from the WC it would've been the perfect saturday of sports:-( Bah, its an all Euro contest now. What's to be done though. Go Azzurri!!

ashanthi said...

very, very sad to see Brasil & Australia out. I know the Ozzies were a long shot but they certainly played better than the Pommes.

s/nut - what's the story with soccer in S/L - it's a great job.

Theena said...

Bahahahaha what a day for English sport. I wanted the football team to win though, but they have this amazing ability to lose an important match in the most dramatic manner possible.

And Brazil going out was the icing on the cake for me. Come on, people - you honestly want Brazil to win the world cup again? Not me.

As for Jayasuriya, just wow. I've written a little appreciation of him in my blog. Check it out.

s/nut - what's the story with soccer in S/L - it's a great job.
?! i did not get the meaning
sl football team is runner up in afc challenge cup. and ranked in lower hundreds i think worldwide.
but cricket is always king here.

theena
english football team: they don't have much else of an ability comparatively.
brazil: see spectralcentroid's post on this.

Keshi said...

WB and hope ur 100% now.

Keshi.

You bashed them too, verbally.
ofcourse, that all your good for.

oh well as you wish. if you want it that way.
after all i did enjoy the real bashing :-)

Anonymous said...

well, the fact that you get cheap thrills through such crap speaks volumes about just how meaningful your life is.

that i enjoyed clever football and masterly batting and losers getting what they deserve, means my life is meaningless?
hmmmmm....
as i said before as you wish :-)

Anonymous said...

well no.
your response is just a deliberate mis-statement of what I said.
enjoying england being defeated for no reason at all (atleast for any reason you are capable of identifying!) and having no greater joy on a saturday night than that certainly makes your life meaningless!
Don't tell me you hate the english team because you think their football skills are lacking!
If that's the case you should have said so in your original post that dealt with that issue!
You actually have NO REASON to hate the english football team or to support the portugese team and yet since your too jobless and have nothing better to do on a saturday night you scream out loud that you are so filled with joy that portugal beat england and wonder what could possibly make the saturday night better!
If that's not pathetic then what is?
Also, by what standard do you refer to members of the english football team as loosers?
Have you achieved more in life than what those football team members have achieved by being good enough to be included in their national team?

sittingnut said...

italy won ! :-)

thanks for your own commentary on your own comment. hope you post them at the same time as the comment next time, so that all who read can understand you first time. :-)

:-) as i said, as you wish.
i certainly can understand your frustration with life after your beloved( your very life and it meaning, it seems given the tone of these comments and the fact that you wrote this comment during the final was live) england lost and your need to project that to other ppl ( including to me). do go right ahead, i don't mind. i like being charitable occasionally .:-)

original post? the one where i said english were over hyped? btw did they ever had any 'football' skills to speak of ? you as a fan may know more about it, i certainly did not see any on the field. :-)

do shouting helps to get over the frustration esp when done in capital letters? if so do continue.
as for what could be more pathetic, well do i have to tell you? how was your state of mind that saturday night. :-)

Also, by what standard do you refer to members of the english football team as loosers?
errr...... bc they lose. you are of course free to think losing makes them winners, if that helps. :-)

Have you achieved more in life than what those football team members have achieved by being good enough to be included in their national team?
good enough? or is it bad enough? i mean all the players in england cannot be that bad!
anyway since you ask i have achieved enough to enjoy the sight of winners win and losers lose. its as simple as that.
i know that doesn't help you, but then supporting england as you do is hardly the best way to have a positive frame of mind. so to be honest it is your own fault that you are like this now.
good luck with the recovery. :-)

-- "original post? the one where i said english were over hyped? btw did they ever had any 'football' skills to speak of ? you as a fan may know more about it, i certainly did not see any on the field."

Yeah, the one in which you said the english team was over hyped AND implied that this is unlikely to be the reason for your aversion to them since the brazilians were over hyped too.

About the football skills of the english team, well if you are a sports fan as you claim you might have known that even the best teams go through bad patches. Doesn't mean they don't have skills. In cricket for example even the best players sometimes go out for near ducks a dozen times in a row. That just means they are going through a bad patch, NOT that they are lousy players who do not have any skills.
Think about the last cticket world cup. Do you remember how many runs Mahele Jayawardena got in all the games he played in ?
Going through a bad phase doesn't make him a looser and he has proven it subsequently.
Same for the english football team.

In any case, you LOOSER, you don't have enough brains to be able to figure out that any team that reaches the quarter final of the world cup is a good team and that the players who made that possible are good players.
not enough brains to figure out even that much!
man, somebody should prepare for a brain transplant.

Like some "pissu balla" you bark with joy at the fall of a giant and pretend to yourself that your just happy they lost because they don't have football skills.

Your just resorting to various ways of diverting attention from the point i made.
you have no reason...no reason...no reason to hate the english football team. You haven't named any reason that you yourself haven't undercut and you just get cheap thrills by observing the fall of a giant.

--"anyway since you ask i have achieved enough to enjoy the sight of winners win and losers lose. its as simple as that"

Whether you've achieved enough to call players who were good enough to be selected for their national side and made it to the quarter final of the football world cup as "loosers" is the question. I didn't ask you whether you've achieved enough to be able to waste a saturday evening by barking in front of a tv screen watching a match where you nave no valide reason to support either side except cheap thrills.

The most pathetic thing about you is that you assume that I am an england supporter!
On the other hand it's understandable, makes it possible for you to divert attention from the things I say by pretending that it must have come from some kind of desperation.

hope screaming at me helps. :-)
bc you are really are sounding silly . and ppl should not act silly unless there is some use to it .
anyway its quite entertaining to behold . do continue :-)

as for my joy at english loss, why shouldn't i be happy to see losers lose( and they were,are, and will be, losers bc they lost, lose, and will lose, it is not just a bad patch), as i said its simple as that. if you cannot bear to see others enjoying themselves that is your problem. do not be so envious it is supposedly bad for your health.

as for their ending up in quarterfinals that is just evidence of how bad others were who played them up to then.

and it is i who decide what i take joy( or 'bark' ,or take 'cheap thrills' :-) or whatever ) in, not anyone else. i am not bound to explain myself to all and sundry. i express it in whatever manner i like too. i have achieved that. :-)
maybe you wont be in this pathetic predicament if you had any sense of of personal worth and independence. then you wont be having this problem of utter misery as a result of an english loss .

you found your personal worth in them instead yourself, so you are now in despair.
now you project blame for your meaningless life on to me, bc you are unwilling to accept your own inadequacies.

that is pathetic but understandable. many others are like you if that is any consolation. :-)

The most pathetic thing about you is that you assume that I am an england supporter!
as you wish :-D

anyway do scream and shout ( esp in capitals ) i enjoy that cheap thrill too. :-)

when your shallowness is exposed so vividly you have nothing left to say other than that you have a right to be shallow and that you do not have to explain yourself to all and soundry!

Ofcourse you don't have to explain yourself...but since you did do a lot of explaining till now, saying that is simply a convenient way to cover up the fact that you have nothing to say anyway!

Your peanut sized brain has determined that it is possible for a lousy football team to reach the quarter final of the world cup through the good luck of being paired with other teams who play even worse!
Where did you learn the art of rationalization so well?

Ofcourse, you have a right to bark!
And since it is your nature to just form opinions without using gray matter at all, that would be inevitable.

as i said as you wish. you probably think you are competent to judge my shallowness :-). and you are free to do so too.
so continue, i certainly enjoy your 'judgments' they are certainly ... entertaining.

do you mean to imply that teams the got defeated play better than the one that reached q-finals? bc i was under the impression those who get defeated play worse.
:-)

having a 'peanut sized brain' probably helps! :-) esp compared to your implied large one.

Ofcourse, you have a right to bark!

gray matter ? do you mean to say you actually use them? that may explain your comments here :-)
as for barking, lol.

--"do you mean to imply that teams the got defeated play better than the one that reached q-finals? bc i was under the impression those who get defeated play worse."

Well no, since you appear to be a moron I'll explain what I mean. what I meant is that England didn't get a free pass into the quarter final. They had to fight their way to qualify in the world cup in the first place. And during the world cup they had many victories and qualified for the quarter final because of that. Surely the england team is better than those teams they beat to qualify to enter the world cup and those teams they beat to be able to qualify for the quarter final. That's what I meant.
You seemed to imply that england just got lucky by being paired with bad teams before reaching the quarter final.

--"gray matter ? do you mean to say you actually use them? that may explain your comments here :-)"

Well, since it appears that your a moron who doesn't even know the meaning of the word "gray matter" you should find out!

Also, if a nut like you can judge the english football team, you shoudn't be surprised that I consider myself qualified to "pass judgements" on you.

fight? they had to fight such bad teams? england should have walked over them if it was any good.

You seemed to imply that england just got lucky by being paired with bad teams before reaching the quarter final.

you cannot have it both ways. either they were bad teams or they were good.
as they were bad, lucky england ended up in q- finals.
if they were good, poor england would not have reached q-finals. simple :-)

btw my question was, do you actually use the gray matter? and what part does that use contribute to your comments?

Also, if a nut like you can judge the english football team, you shoudn't be surprised that I consider myself qualified to "pass judgements" on you.
sure, :-) you are free as i said to pass judgment on nutty judgments like mine. in fact i asked you to continue (see above) .
after all 'judgment on nutty judgments', what could be more entertaining to a nut like me. :-) so continue
