the downfall of my people

My 10 or so regular fans may have noticed that I’m posting today’s entry rather late in the day.  This is because I was too depressed before now to turn on my computer. 


Greece got their ass kicked by SWEDEN in yesterday’s match!  Tell me this, how can the cradle of democracy, philosophy, ancient Gods, etc possibly lose to the birthplace of virutally nothing but depressing movies and cheap crap furniture?!?

Shame, shame!

That’s right, cry, you vlakas, cry.  But pick it up by Saturday’s game or I’ll really give you something to cry about!

I mean, really.  It’s completely embarrassing.  A country with 572 (or thereabouts) local soccer teams can’t get together one decent team for the Eurocup?!  Please.

I wonder if it’s because they decided to go with a new style of soccer cleats?

I mean, Takis nearly threw himself off my living room wall, he was so freaked out!

Well, smarten up boys, and fast.  I’m sure you can return to your former state of glory by Saturday, can’t you? 

And just remember – hell hath no fury like a Hellenic woman scorned!

And if you have any doubts about that statement, just call puir wee JJ.  I’m sure he’d be glad to fill you in on the truth…!

Happy Wednesday!

    What the hell kind of shoes are those???… and why are those people blue and yellow???? I gotta say there were several parts of this post that freaked me out a little.

    So much to say!
    First, as England didn’t even make Euro 2008 you get no sympathy from me on the poor performance of Greece.

    Second, why the heck didn’t Bloglines let me know you were back? I was beginning to wonder about how long your incredibly long holiday was going to last for when I dropped by to fondly read old posts while I patiently waited…and woah! here you are. Darn bloglines.

    Third, Nova Scotia is indeed wonderful and (this is high praise from a native Maritimer) I expect you would fit into the Maritime way of life brilliantly!

    (Belated) Welcome back!

    Soo beat me to it on two counts! I was just about to say, at least the Greek made it to the competition, unlike the useless English, with their useless manager-that-was! I’m backing Greece still (on behalf of my ex-brother-in-law, and YOU, of course!) and also Portugal (on behalf of my Portuguese son-in-law!).

    Also, as Soo says, Bloglines aren’t showing up your updates, oddly enough. Any ideas?

    Thanks all… chuckle… and go Red Wings! 🙂

    Thanks also, Soo and Clarabelle, for letting me know about the feed. I seem to have two: one appears up to date and it is this one: I see from searching WordPress that sometimes when they’re working on the system it is slow to update. So, you might want to change to the above one. And Soo, I am touched that you would come back to read old posts 🙂
