Come on Elephants!

Watching the World Cup has taken precedence over blogging lately.  The pope of all people said it best:

“Amongst all unimportant subjects, football is by far the
most important.”
Pope John Paul II

So, it’s Brazil on Sunday.  Should be a good game and hopefully not a disaster for the Ivory Coast as Sven-Göran Eriksson  seems to have sorted the defensive play.

More football quotes:

“In football everything is complicated by the presence of
the opposite team.”
Jean-Paul Sartre

“Some people think football is a matter of life and death.
It is much more important than that.”
Bill Shankly

“I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars.
The rest I just squandered.”
George Best

“The point about football in Britain is that it is not just a
sport people take to, like cricket or tennis. It is built into
the urban psyche, as much a common experience to our
children as are uncles and school. It is not a
phenomenon: it is an everyday matter.”
Arthur Hopcraft

“I fell in love with football as I was later to fall in love
with women. Suddenly, uncritically, giving no thought to
the pain it would bring.”
Nick Hornby
