World Cup Quarters Day 1 or THANK GOD THE GERMANS WON!

Earlier in the tournament, I wrote about how little I liked the team from Serbia. To give them their due, they really aren't very good, and they need to screw around to even draw close to competing.

Argentina is another matter. They are one of the best sides in the world. They are fast, they are skilled, they are very very organized. They are also one of the dirtiest, least honorable pack of loser jerks on the planet.

Beyond fouling and diving their way through a match, beyond the constant bad mouthing. Beyond the slaps, and pushes and (this one was a stunner for me) throat grabs (all of which were after the whistle, not in the run of play), beyond all that, they ahve to go and start a small brawl after they lose by penalty kicks.

For years people talked about banning the English team for what their fans did in the stands, perhaps FIFA should look at their fair play banners and then look at how Argentina plays and notice the contrast.

SIDENOTE

In the 75th minute Italy is doing what Italy is supposed to be doing, beating the Ukranian side 3 -0.
