Movie review - Happy Gilmore



So my children, some football musings in no particular order.

FOOTY

England: Crouch being dropped will be a good thing. It will stop us relying on long diagonal balls being fired at him (which is no fault of his really). Hats off, he done much better than I thought he would and he has grown on me, he'll be a good sub. I hear a horrible rumour that Hargreaves will be played instead of Gerrard (to rest/protect him from another yellow). Carrick. Carrick. CARRICK YOU PRICK SVEN. I think the team has got results when not playing well and truly think we can only get better. Feel more optimistic now than before the tournament.

Argentina: Thanks chaps, for a fantastic spectacle, well played.

Ghana: Get in, top result against Czechs and they should have won by more. Excellent stuff.

Korea: Nice one chaps, in the usual HuSi "not-really-ironic-irony" stylee, thanks for giving the evil froggies a hard time. Bad luck Thierry :0)

Brazil: Will get better as the tournament goes on but could probably do with dropping Ronaldormous, I know he set up that goal, but in fairness only because 4 players decided to stand around him, hold hands and start dancing in a circle as opposed to kicking him like a good old Englisheseman would have.

DULL MATES
My mates are a bit dull. I think this says more about me than them. I was speaking to a friend last night who was home from Paris and all he could talk about was 'The Game' (WoW). Yawn. I wanted to talk about footy, which no-one is sick of.

MISSED CONCERT
I had a ticket to see the Foo Fighters, Subways, Strokes in Manchester last night. I couldn't go because my mate who was coming over from Paris was only free last night. I am sad about missing the concert in order to be lectured about 'The Game'.

UNRELIABILITY
I am unreliable. Not intentionally, but I am. I often vaguely agree to do stuff and then when it comes to it, not want to do and annoy people by ducking out. I did this to Claire on Saturday evening and she was (is) pretty cross with me. The thing is, it wasn't intentional or personal, its something I know I do but can't seem to change. 4/10, Alex, you're a bit crap sometimes.

PERSPECTIVE
I read a diary by someone earlier and it made me well up. Man, that put life in perspective, Alex, your life is actually pretty fucking charmed you big moaning fool. Again, all my best wishes to the guys involved, been a bit broody recently and (argh gayness, am getting a bit teary again) I hate to think what you're going through and wish you weren't.

MOVIE REVIEW
I know, I know! But there was a golf club on the front of the DVD case which is practically like smearing liquid sexy chicks on it. I laughed loads as well. I am soooo low-brow.

I'm feeling more positive about England by nebbish (4.00 / 1) #3 Mon Jun 19, 2006 at 04:55:06 AM EST
It happened when the camp started falling apart, Gerrard saying "No" when asked if we could win the World Cup, and Owen calling a press conference to tell us how crap his teammates are. It was all a bit self-satisfied until then, I can smell the fight in them now.

Argentina were stunning, luckily I taped the match so I've been able to watch that goal over and over again. Serbia rolled over though, they were really shit, and crucially didn't play defensively against a superior team like T&T did with us. I'll be really impressed when Argentina do it against one of the big teams. Us for example.

Anyway, I'm off to change my nationality. AR! AR! ARGENTINA!

It's political correctness gone mad!

Traitor!!! by Alice Pulley (4.00 / 1) #4 Mon Jun 19, 2006 at 05:00:20 AM EST
Etc.

Yeah, that is the only thing about the Argentinian result, S+M were pretty toilet, 'twould be a a bit like judging us on the fact that we beat Jamaica 6-0. Still, Argentina have got quality all over their team and if Riquelme has a few consistent games, have as good a chance as anyone.

And why didn't you post the ticket to me? Git.

So, she's already telling you how unreliable you are...

Lurking out in the depths, the slowly circling fin the only clue to its presence, the horror of Dooooooooooooooooooooomed is still out there...

I need to get out more.

Don't worry by DullTrev (4.00 / 4) #7 Mon Jun 19, 2006 at 05:40:22 AM EST

They'll be back again in about 3 months.

Re: perspective. Recently had some from a friend of mine, too. Very nasty stuff. For a while, I was thankful for the chance to reassess where I am, the problems I have, and how insignificant they are.

Then I realised that my problems are obviously more important, because they're happening to me. So sod the rest of you.

zidane by alprazolam (4.00 / 1) #12 Mon Jun 19, 2006 at 06:30:01 AM EST
all I ever hear about this guy is how he's one of the all time greats, "player of the decade", yada yada yada, and then he goes out and gets schooled by a korean and gives up a goal.

most overrated pro sports player on the planet.

He's been... by Alice Pulley (4.00 / 2) #13 Mon Jun 19, 2006 at 06:39:15 AM EST
...nowhere near the player he was at his best for a few years now. When he was at his peak at Juve he was a truly great player, I remember watching him play and thinking - you haven't given the ball away once in this whole match.

Curse of the Madrid - footballers secret burial grounds.
