How awesome is the World Cup?
Posted by clubsodaandsalt on July 1, 2006
So I’m watching the England-Portugal match, and the commentators keep talking about how the Argentinian referee (who just sent off Wayne Rooney) is the same guy who sent Beckham off in some match or the other in 2000. What’s great about this is that you just know that fans in England will spend tons of time talking about how this Argentine totally had it in for England, on account of the whole mess in the Falklands (or, if you will, las Malvinas.)
What other event brings out these sorts of old grudges? Totally awesome.
