Now that's what I call an effective anti-gambling publicity campaign!

"Wow! I wish my dad was a degenerate gambler!"


  1. My sainted mother, who knows little about football but has an abiding hatred of Germans and Germany (for some untathomable reason she took their efforts during WWII to kill her rather personal)y) predicted the result many weeks ago.

    Her hatred runs so deep she even wanted Argentina to win. I, on the other hand, wanted both sides to loose. And then for football to be outlawed. Forever.

    1. I'm fine with the Germans - I really like the ones I know, and try to forgive them for the arrogant MEPs who occasionally appear on British TV and radio to tell us we are "bed Euwopeans" for not wanting to be part of their ridiculous "racket" any longer, on the basis that the vast majority of MEPs are stupid and obnoxious. However, your mother wasn't alone in supporting the Argies (made bearable by the fact that Tevez wasn't playing for them and that Maradona has no official connection with the team). Definitely a Henry Kissinger Iran/Iraq War situation.
