No postings on the World Cup yet, although I’ve been watching as much as I can and enjoying most of it, except for 90 minutes last Saturday afternoon. Thanks to the England goalkeeper’s utterly bizarre howler, I have been on the receiving end of much gleeful teasing – cute email references to “dropping the ball”, and the like. Oh, how I laughed.
Anyway, my friend Marilyn sent me this priceless piece of Yank gloating from The Colbert Report earlier this week. Kind of sums it up. Enjoy it, if you can watch it through your tears (of laughter, if you’re American – or just plain old tears, if you’re English.)
