Football Fever

Better Reception
I've been watching SBS on a below perfect reception. A friend helped me last night to set up the TV so it has the second best possible reception (being there is probably #1)

The Timing
I like the fact that the games are on at 11pm, 2am & 5am. Althought it means I have less sleep, it doesn't interfere with anything else! It would be difficult to get out of a scripture class to watch a football match... but when the only sacrifice is sleep I can go without for a few weeks.

African (& Asian?) Goalkeepers
For the last 4 World Cups I've noticed that goalkeepers from Africa (and maybe Asia?) more often than not wear long goal keeping pants. The South American and European keepers wear shorts.

This Post
I've watched at least one match each night. I wrote this in the early hours of Saturday morning... but fell asleep and didn't ever post it... so here it is... (posted 5:58am Sunday morning during half-timeUSA vs Italy game... 2nd half has just started and a 3 player has just been sent off... now USA 9 players vs Italy 10 score 1-1.)
