Out of the Blue

Frans has returned safe and sound and is now once again safely chained to his computer, we have an extra-large list of reviews today as a bit of evidence of that.

We're currently in the middle of the world's largest sporting "event" as the world cup is underway. Of course, this gets about as little attention in the US as anywhere other than Antarctica, but Prisoners escape during Brazil game (thanks Al) offers a good perspective for us Yanks as to just exactly how popular this all is. Man!

Personally I think it's the lack of scoring (2 goals in 90+ minutes of running around, ack).. They could use a couple less people running around, make the field shorter/less wide and get rid of offsides, then maybe they'd have something.

Naah. If you want basketball, watch basketball :). The good thing about football's not the goals (well, not *just* the goals) but the "gameplay". Watch Zidane playing and you know what I mean. Football's a lot about tactics, ball control and elegant moves. I remember watching a game Brazil against the Netherlands a few years ago - it ended 0:0 but boy, was that a good game! Very high speed and great moves on both sides. They just had bad luck when it came to actually getting the ball into the net, but it was a lot of fun to watch :).
