The Fever

Saint Leonard is abuzz. Everyone is talking. For the next month, this enclave of Montreal becomes an extension of their old home. Old Italian ladies are cleaning out their basements, getting all the equipment out.

Ask anyone around where they are from, you will not get one Canada. For the next month, we do not take orders from Stephen Harper, but from Marcello Lippi. The new Axis of Evil is the Czech Republic, Ghana, and the United States. The lesser Axis of Evil is the countries which the referees come from.

Imaginations run rampant of secret soccer training centres deep in the mountains of Utah, and of referee conspiracies. Our players are so awesome they can’t possibly lose legitimately right?

The flags are out. The national anthem has been practiced. Lineups have been committed to memory. Faces have been painted. The FEVER has arrived.

Maybe next time, the PQ should call the referendum some World Cup game night. I'm pretty sure it would help.

Anyway, go Brazil!

That would be the England team that has a longer record of futility than the Toronto team that allegedly plays hockey?

Right?

Some of the korean jerseys say Corea.
history lesson: Japan changed it from C to K because K came after J in the alphabet.
The C on the jerseys means: we hosted the fifa with you guys but now its time to say F*** You Japan.
Funny, I don't even like soccer that much and I'm excited.
