The Apron of Humanity

Whoever they are - they must be stopped! The World Cup announcers on ESPN2 have now officially (by Terry) been deemed to be the worst ever. They are "a stain on the apron of humanity." We actually went to El Charro yesterday afternoon to watch the second half of the Mexico-Iran match on the big screen - a large family party (who were not even watching the game) seated in the same room made it difficult to hear the commentator, but just the rhythm and pace of the voice calling the game was an improvement over the inane babble of "...and in soccer, players are allowed to touch the ball with any part of their body except their hands! And oh look, there's Jose Gonzalez, whose third cousin once played for the American team... his mother is in the stands today. She must be so proud... oh, a goal. Well this just in - the US coach has said that..." blah blah blah. Buggrit!

Genesis, Chapter 1

You'd think God would know exactly what He's doing, but He doesn't. He's a tinkerer. He tries something out—what if I move all the water around so dry land can appear? He checks it out. He sees "that it was good." Then He moves on to the next experiment—how about plants? Let's try plants.

Yeah I was nearly at the point of throwing things at the TV while watching the Brazil game the other day. But I must say, Wednesday's games were good - all the way to the 93rd minute.

So apparently Terry must have taken the mental equivalent of beano - since there haven't been any thought burps in some time!
