Rockin’ The World Cup

I’ve decided to dedicate much of my future June and early July posting to the World Cup. I’ll be featuring a post throughout the World Cup Tournament for every country participating. It could be a band from the country, a song relating to soccer or even to just the country, but somehow I will post about it. This could be an extremely hard theme to keep lol, but damnit I’ll do it. Stay tuned for the series, it will be happening from June 9th to July 9th, the same days as the tournament.  Here’s a list of every country participating, arranged by their home continents.

    kane going international? i am pleasantly surprised. let me be your number one advisor for poland. i will consult my mom and provide translations. heck, i would even dress up in a traditional folk wear allow the posting of my pictures free of charge, but since i don’t own such clothes, people must survive without me.

    also, ripple by the grateful dead has taken over my house

    also, poland played a friendly last week and the goalkeeper from the other team kicked the ball across the darn field and scored on us. it was so shameful that our country almost annexed itself with whatever is to the east of us. we were almost ukraine, but luckily beautiful polish women saved our pride, and we thus remain (and happily so, given that ukraine may very well have no water).

    the reason i’m informing you of these facts is because the song may have to be mellow given that we’re getting our ass kicked.

    So you’re saying I can’t use “We Are The Champions” for Poland?

    no, not unless you’re talking about polish sausage or me

    and please, none of that stupid techno dance music. that only represents about 90% of our disco shirt/huge sunglasses wearing youth, but i will not stand for it

    I wish the grouping was done by location. Saudi would tear up that Asian category (as they’ve shown in the past). In the group it’s in, the team will need a miracle to advance.

  7. you go! you know I’ll be checking the blog and adding it to the blogroll just because of this feature haha.

  8. Ah, busted, you beat me by a few days. I’m doing a similar feature, I should’ve guessed I wasn’t unique.
    Good luck with it though, looks like a ton of work…
