Cocoa said...

I liked Terry Tate, Office Linebacker.

Violet said...

Each team in our office has been allocated a team. We have got Argentina. We are trying our best to be enthusiastic. Still, they have a better chance than England. Go Stevie Gerard!!

FSP said...

Vuvuzela in hand

Tongue N. Cheek said...

So Steamy, are you saying that thanking us was your GOAL??????

sandybrook said...

Are you making fun of the Rangers power play Enty??? :(

QueenAnne Guido said...

In our office we say "Court is now is session." Scream "goal" and you're likely to get slapped in to cuffs and ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation.

Which seems appropriate. Wholly appropriate.

AMERICA: real sports don't end in a tie.

Anybody gonna watch Croatia? They're getting ready for the Brazilian Whacks.

TalksTooMuch said...

One time? I bet the cook at work on a World Cup game, the stakes were a public striptease. But I had Brazil! ! No WAY was Brazil gonna lose! Sigh. They still talk about the day the overall straps went flying in the kitchen. ..

Violet said...

@Steamy I don't know. All I know is all of a sudden I'm meant to be all 'Up the Argies' when my entire life has been spent in some sort of brain washed xenophobic trance.

Cocoa said...

"THE PAIN TRAIN'S COMING, WhoooWhooooo!!!!!!

crila16 said...

Never. No one in my office really cares, except for this one Brazilian girl. She won't shut up about it. I can't stand soccer...well actually, she just sent me a link to all the hottest players. Super hot guys. Why don't I like soccer again?

TalksTooMuch said...

Good morning Gweeds!! How are you? Only 80 more days!

Wee S said...

Two in my dept got South American countries which I'm raging at-any other year id be quids in with the Dutch but you cant bet against Argentina, Columbia and Brazil etc!

Steampunk Jazz said...

Actually, it's all about the sweaty guys with their beautifully lean bodies, tearing off their shirts when they score a...
GOOOOAAAALLLL!
But I am thankful for you guys
(goal)
:D

Sorry non Americans, World Cup rates below Pro Bowling and just above WNBA on my list of sports I care about.

The Real Dragon said...

aemish oh lmao i wouldnt know im not into those things.

QueenAnne Guido said...

not 80.... more like 40 that feels like 80,,,,

seeing eye TTM.... that was funny.



aemish said...

I love watching soccer.. my only suggestion is they make the goals a LOT bigger... would be nice to have different end scores than 1 > 0

Wee S said...

Hey watching the opening ceremony and MV just took to the stage and you cant hear her for shit! Its like she's miming but they forgot her track!!

Wee S said...

Watch GAA. Fast pace and it has goals AND points.

TalksTooMuch said...

Okay good, 40 is waaaay better

aemish said...

@Wee.. crap! now I gotta wait for someone to put it up on youtube

Steampunk Jazz said...

Think of it this way Violet, The royal blue will look stunning against your red hair and fair complexion :D
Stripes are slimming!
Anybody gives you grief, just razz their team colors and say..
"If my team wins, I get a 100 quid!"
Anybody can understand mercenary and if it's in the office? Make like you have a bookie ;-)

auntliddy said...

Meh. And those vesuvas or whatever with the droing- ugh!!

aemish said...

Wow, I never heard of GAA before! You mean the hurling thing? I've never seen it on any US stations at all

aemish said...

I checked auntliddy -- they are selling a different kind of noisemaker, but they have been banned from the stadium :D "whew!"

aemish said...

Remember the Vuvuzela? Meet the World Cup's Newest Noisemaker

califblondy said...

I'm just waiting for shirtless guys too.

Wee S said...

GAA is both gaelic football and hurling. Awesome sports, I hold my breath watching them!

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

That's all year, but has nothing to do with that pucking game.

PotPourri said...

It's making me a little crazy though with all the "Brasil" instead of "Brazil"!!! I like the ZZZZZZZZ's!

Cee Kay said...

Sometimes I miss being in an office. This is not one of them.

Riven said...

Hey Steamy! I've had better weeks. Thanks for the love, that shout-out put a needed smile on my face. I'm pretty grateful for the cool internet friends I've made on here too. :)

Seachica said...

On my team, I have to follow the World Cup just to survive. My teammates are crazy about it. Seattle is a soccer mad city, at least as far as the US goes.
