The World Cup final between Italy and France begins in … oh, I don’t know; a few hours or so. Or maybe Thursday, or next month. Anyway, Houston’s Bob Carter emails:
Tim, I don’t know about you but watching hyper-sensitive Euros falling to the ground every time they’re touched and whining to the officials is not my idea of sport. As a suggestion I think you would enjoy the fine American sport of anvil shooting. Better than NASCAR since it combines heavy metal, booze, the same kind of women, and explosions!
I like! Still, we’d better pick a nation for the big Euro ball-kick dive-a-thon. Simon Heffer has advice:
Are we supporting France or Italy? It is, I admit, a tricky one, like choosing between Marshal Pétain and Mussolini, or snails soaked in garlic and gnocchi. However, just think how good it has been for the arrogant French to have had a bit of adversity in the past year or so.
First, their president is humiliated in the referendum on the European constitution. Then they lose a prime minister. Then they have two lots of riots, one about racial questions and the other about the economy.
To cap it all, they don’t get the 2012 Olympic Games. Have they suffered enough? I don’t quite think so. Viva Italia!
Italy it is, then. That’s if Gaia allows the match to proceed:
A state of emergency was declared in Berlin for seven hours as a violent summer storm lashed the German capital, local authorities said …
Meteorologists said Berlin had more than half its average monthly rainfall for July in just a few minutes.
It’s wassernacht! Those watching the contest are invited to provide coverage in comments.
