So what is timesnewroman? It's not the font, rather my take on the age we live in. The USA is the new Rome and the times we live in are timesnewroman.

Dance with me Germany*

I've been remiss or had nowt to say. For the next four weeks this is very likely to continue because I'll be glued to the screen watching events unfold in Germany. thewife is happy enough to watch World Cup Football, because the quality is a bit better than that I usually watch. My money's on Spain to win although they've flattered to deceive so often before. My choices are a bit like that, previously having gone for Nigeria, Portugal and the Czech Republic for Euro 2004. Brasil are head and shoulders above everyone else, but I would have said the same about them in France 8 years ago. They can be beaten.

Anyway my betting record to date has been pretty crap - Zurawski to score First for Poland, Germany and Poland to win. I think I might go for England to win with Peter Crouch scoring first to get the odds up a bit. I'm a shit pundit though so feel free to be derisory.

It's hotting up round here, Cape Fear man who lives across the road has a big St George's flag dangling in his window. Surprisingly no-ones panned it in yet, although that may be because they've had a look at him.

Cape Fear Man lives across the road from us. His hair is longer and he's a lot uglier!

13:38 and I've just heard my first reference to 1966. For fuck's sake, that is actually why I don't want England to win. I'm sure as a bunch of footballers they are probably a nice bunch of lads, supported by a bunch of folks the same as me who happen to live geographically south of here, but as soon as I convince myself of that some fucking media plonker has to mention 1966!
