I got 37-1 that Croatia would win the whole thing and I put $10 down.

So... Croatia.

I probably wrote that headline in the dead of night only looking at the flags of the nations.  Either way, this match will be no picnic.

The computer are having to use here at work, for some reason, won't play sound unless headphones are plugged in. I tried for a good 45 minutes yesterday to get it to work, but no.

I guess that means we won't be subjected to Strong and Holden and that's a bonus.

I'm living in a world where I awoke this morning, thought to myself that it seems like a good idea to open my William Hill app, place an inordinately large chunk of money on ENGLAND TO ADVANCE TO THE WORLD CUP FINALS, because that seems possible, almost likely in fact

i feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

Even the wife was cool with it when I told her I might go kinda big on this one, CRAZY PILLS (my wife knows sports better than a lot of folks, she gets just how weird this is)

Because it is England, Derek Rae and Aly Wagner would be calling the match.

You've got to hold and give
But do it at the right time
You can be slow or fast
But you must get to the line
They'll always hit you and hurt you
Defend and attack
there's only one way to beat them
Get round the back
Catch me if you can
'cause' I'm the England man
And what you're looking at
Is the master plan
We ain't no hooligans
This ain't a football song
Three lions on my chest
I know we can't go wrong

/A change from it's coming home...

I avoid the crazy pills I would not doubt be taking during the tournament by doing all of my responsible wagering before the tourney starts. That's why I'm going for Croatia.

Visited Croatia a few years ago, and have some friends that are from there originally. Would love to see them go to the finals.

Mine did that once. Plugged speakers into the headphone jack as a temporary fix. Reinstalling the driver worked. Apparently, a windows update wrecked the driver. Big surprise there. But I'm sure you've tried these things.

This is my dream.  The game is tied 1-1 in the dying moments of extra time.  There's a cross with pace into the box from Dele.  Maguire smashes it home, but wait whistle just blew.  No goal. NO GOAL.  Kane was offside.  It's onto penalties.  Of course it's penalties because it will hurt more.  Raheem Sterling off the post!  Down goes England.  It's not coming home!  It's not coming home!

If England lose, I really, really hope there's no way to blame Raheem Sterling, because the press seems to have their knives sharpened for him already and he doesn't deserve that.

Yeah they do. Ok Kane can hit the post. While I get a perverse pleasure watching the English press go off on Sterling (I have my guesses as to why), I actually like him and he need not suffer.  And if Kane misses he can go onto manage England in a few decades like Southgate.

Afternoon all.  Made it back to Rochester from Vegas after two flight delays, at 11.  Didn't sleep much on the red-eye and so trying to catch up a little now.  Millie helps.
