A Quick Word About Portugal v. Germany
So we're finally at the point were I give a damn about Euro 08. TOR is throwing it's unsubstantial weight behind the Portuguese, and not just because they are playing almost as pretty at the Dutch or because their women are the only thing at the tournament that is prettier than the Dutch.
It's because I just hate the Germans something serious. It's partially because I still haven't gotten over this and I may never get over it. I will never root for the Germans under any circumstance; I might put on a sombrero and a lucha libre mask before I ever even contemplated sporting lederhosen. I loathe them that much.
When asked who he would support just before Germany played Brazil in the 2002 World Cup, author Nick Hornby said that most English people would root for the Taliban All Star team before they took up the German cause. I'm not English but today you can call me Prince Charles.
