World Cup Update


I tend not to post football related posts on here - I leave that on my other blog http://www.ontheterracing.blogspot.com/   However, I feel sure some of my regular visitors to The Rants - Peggy who is rooting for her Socceroos; Gillian who lives in South Africa and June from Seattle who must have enjoyed the USA taking England down a peg or two on Saturday will enjoy some of these...


* Watching this World Cup is just like being married. You're supposed to enjoy it, but there's this constant droning noise in the background.....

* Robert Green's gaffe - at least that's one British spillage the Americans won't be moaning about...

* What's the difference between Robert Green and Justin Bieber? Robert Green knows how to drop his balls.

* Kermit was right: It's not easy being Green.

* All these Rob Green jokes are getting out of hand. In fact they're crossing the line...

* Steven Gerrard said: "The whole team is behind Rob Green." With hindsight, that's a good place to stand.

* Robert Green's bringing out his own South African trumpet. It's known as a boo-boozela

* Yesterday at London Zoo one of the staff let a a Central American monkey slip out of his grasp. So Robert Green's not the only English keeper to drop a Howler.

* My computer's got the Robert Green virus. It can't save anything.

* I'm Robert Green and cleaning Windows is my next idea...

Poor Mr Green.
I think we get the message Mike.
The Socceroos are probably the butt of many jokes too. :(

Thing is, Peggy, players like Green are paid more in a week than people like me get in two years. You might expect him to be able to catch the ball!

No one is perfect Mike.
I have no idea why I am defending this Mr Green....LOL

That was really great, I bet Green is going to be harrassed for that for a long, long time. I was drinking a Diet Coke at the time and spit it out, it almost came out my nose...

Haha ha - too funny. I agree they get paid a fortune to be the butt of ridicule and scorn. Its their job. they just kick a ball around a field after all. I have never understood why they get paid so much money.
