"I thought we had 'em"

... said a rueful Mark Viduka to ABC RN's Rafael Epstein on the car radio late this afternoon as I drove into a flamingo-pink sunset that seemed highly symbolic of the whole Socceroo trajectory thingy: gorgeous, but about to disappear.

Now ask me if this is the first time in my life that I've started to get interested in something just as the arse fell out of it.

So, PC, is this the first time you got interested in something just as the arse fell out of it?

ThirdCat said...

oh, and does that mean, you're always behind the times?

It is a shame your interest has only just been engaged.

To watch the socceroos in the world cup has been just marvellous. Pure joy.

Although my experiences are as one who has followed them closely through their many previous unsuccessful attempts.

I'm still on a high from when they qualified!!!

3C: it's the entire story of my life. It's not the times I'm behind, so much -- more the eight-ball.

CSH: Yep, you've seemed to be really enjoying yourself. I'll know to watch it all from the beginning next time.

Unlike almost everyone else in the world, I put the telly on late last night in order to watch Day 1 of Wimbledon. It was, of course, raining.

They start playing in the Asia Cup in August - first game will be against Quwait...

They were beautiful to watch against Italy. Their game really came together and I think that I felt my first ever tinge of patriotism.

Good for you Pavlov! I've just spent a fortnight on a tour following the Socceroos around with a few thousand enthusiasts. It's been delightfully bizarre to come back and find the same people who called it 'wogball' this time last year looking bleary-eyed yesterday and claiming we woz robbed!

I have successfully resisted the bandwagon.
