And considering they are the best paid in the world, I only can hope none of them avoid tax.

You need to relax a little more.

I don't want to relax enough to enjoy a lazy Ben stiller sequel. That's the level of relaxation necessary to enjoy NASCAR.

But you're right that drawing with USA is not the mark of a top team. I've often thought it would be fun to see what it would be like if the top athletes in the NBA and NFL grew up playing soccer.

I got your level. You will be a fine lawyer.

RE: World Cup 2010
My wife who I do not think has ever watched a soccer match in her entire life says she is going to get up at 4am to watch Australia vs Germany - perhaps it is the 2nd glass of an excellent Gissen Sauvignon Blanc we had with dinner tonight. Personally I shall hopefully awake to watch the F1 at 2am and be sound asleep by then

I have no idea - I assume given Germany is a nation where soccer is much more popular that they will have a better team

RE: World Cup 2010
two of our national open signal channels used 3/4 of the news journal to a live coverage of the national team press conference...and we only play on tuesday.
The third channel was busy broadcasting live Slovenia vs Can't be bothered to remember who

Soccer is the way Judeo-Christian masses found to express their homosexuality - they can all get very excited watching 22 young men sweating in shorts.
Adults comfortable with their sexuality have better things to do... like watching F1.

What about Tropic Thunder?

I have to agree on Zoolander.

The reason Meet the Fockers is a rare sequel which is better than the first Meet the Parents is the way Hoffman and De Niro work. Stiller is almost a bit player. He only has one character.
And the dog being flushed, it's classic.

Ugh, Meet the Fockers sucked compared to the original IMO.

Tropic Thunder was hilarious. But mostly because of the supporting actors which says a lot about the genius of Stiller and the fact that he doesn't allow his ego to be bigger than the movie.

The target audience is for 10 year olds.

I reckon.

films don't have names containing oblique references to profanities.

Apparently we were significantly disadvantaged by a number of factors:

(1) One of our best players was sent off in unusual circumstances early in the game
(2) Our team is composed predominately of soccer geriatrics whereas the German team was young
(3) Our Coach is a Dutchman who apparently did not field some of the team's better players and has a history of unimaginative coaching & player selections

Whilst for reasons of national pride it would be nice to see the team progress if they don't at least that will mean that the world Cup will virtually disappear from newspapers/our TV screens as soon as they are eliminated.

I believe our next game is against Korea who have been making less than complementary statements about our team and their average age.

RE: World Cup 2010
i wish i could say the same for american broadcasts.

what was with the refs today? the morning game had 6 yellow cards in the first 21 minutes. the midday game was the most horrific, biased officiating i've ever seen. i didn't have the courage to watch the afternoon game. was the england match poorly refereed?

Plus the US got robbed a winning goal.

What a second half.. now if they can play like that the whole game we might be able to do some damage the next round
