Futbol roundup

My newly beloved Dutch got eliminated from the Euro 2008 tourney, but at least Italy lost as well. Unlike Netherlands who believe in trying to score 20 goals a game even if they give up 19, Italy believe in playing for a 0-0 draw and winning on penalty kicks. Against Spain yesterday, Italy always had 5 behind the ball - if they didn't one faked an injury to stop play. For about 20 minutes I'm pretty sure they were playing a 10-0-0 formation. In extra time they just stacked up bodies in front of the net like firewood.

Watching the Italians play soccer is like watching a boa constrictor try to eat a horse. There's very little movement, it takes a long ass time, the snake may or may not succeed, and in the end you just don't care either way.


Azzurri? More like Assurri!

Because they play like ass.

Dutch: Very tall, very white, very fast, and very eliminated by Russia.

Slappy: Immune to sarcasm.
