The whole world in a cup,
Wrapped in gold, glory.
A month long quest,
Of cheers, jeers,
The battles call to me,
From the true green pitch,
Samba dance with a ball,
Ninety minute songs.
I hold my breath.

Why name it “Love, Lust”. How does that part stand out above the rest? Just wondering… 🙂
Draws some readers in more than I would if I called it something more directly related to the world cup or soccer. Or, maybe that’s just me being the naive American thinking my country still doesn’t much care for the sport…
Or, maybe it’s just how I feel about the game…
Haha, well it did actually get my attention!
Yeah, sorry I don’t really care too much about soccer…
See!! So it worked. 😉
*Sighs* I must admit defeat…
*rubs hands together*
Am I the whistle? Cause I want to be the whistle 😉
The Queen might not approve….
Your Hubby might not approve either
and I think tweeticus is more appropriate for a whistle… just saying.
Well then tweeticus
si, en espanol, es “gol.”
Hablas espanol, mi amiga?
Bueno. Como estas hoy?
Estoy bien. ¿Y tu?
Bien, bien. La copa mundial esta eso mes, es uno de mis cosas favoritas.
or something like that.
how do you get the fancy punctuation?
Ahaha! Copy and paste 😉
Or clever. 😉
I know right I’m flippin hilariousicus
Whoooohoo!!! World Cup!!
Soccer interests me not. But this was nice anyway.
I’m sad, but thank you. 😛
Why are you sad?
That soccer doesn’t interest you.
enjoy, enjoy. and i have a couple more world cup stories under my belt, that you shall soon see. happy wc month, dj )
OoO, can’t wait to read your world cup stories!
brazil is on its way
Soft penalty, and then soft “protecting the keeper call” to deny Croatia a good opportunity near the end.
Still, if Croatias keeper had been stronger on the PK, and faster on the 3rd goal, the scoreline would be very different.
I need to figure out who to root for now 🙂
for at least the group stage…
I loathe sports, as a rule, but I LOVE your poetry. So torn right now *sigh*
I’m sorry to do that to you.
Commence inner turmoil!
Oh, I already done did commence that.
How you gonna put “lust” in the title and talk about soccer!?
Makes perfect sense to me.
You’re a jester. Most of your audience is decidedly not. Geez…
I fail to see how that is my problem…?
Because jester. Just take my word for it. Would I steer you wrong? On purpose?
But, I lurves das foosball. I can’t just switch that off.
I’ve always loved playing it, but I just can’t get into watching it.
I don’t suffer from that complication.
Look at you lowering yourself to putting words like lust in your title to grab stats. You sly dog you.
I’m all about the stats, hadn’t you heard? Next I’ll be trying to break Art’s comment count “record.”
Aw, thanks! I appreciated the support.
Anything to take Art down a notch.
Hah! He’ll like the attention, even if it is us trying to surpass his record.
He’s silly like that.
Or, he’s brilliant like that.
Oh dear. I think it’s time for me to go home and start drinking.
Drinking is good!
It is, it was, it will be again.
Yes, I agree, and indeed.
It’s a shame we don’t live closer together. I could use a good drinking buddy.
Me, too, DJ. Me, too.
If you ever need a grand CA adventure/vacation, let me know.
I’d hafta win the lottery for that to happen. I would love to see Cali, though.
Well, someone has to win the lottery, might as well be you.
That would be nice.
Also, you see what I’m doing here?
I do, but I thought you’d make a post specifically for that.
Not posting as much these days…
Neither am I.
…. work? life? muse gone missing?
Just not as interested lately.
That’s too bad… but, yeah, I know what you mean. Summer doldrums, perhaps… the nice weather is calling us to other activities…
Been sick. Got burnt out, I think, after my 25 Days 25 Songs challenge. Been finding other things to do. I’m still (mostly) keeping up on my reading, though.
That’s better than me. I’m doing a terrible job on keeping up with reading.
Well, I have to do SOMETHING at work….
I’ve actually work to do recently. Rude.
FYI, tomorrow, we’re all shouting for Ghana. Sorry.
Come on you Yanks!
Revenge for the past two cups. Victory for USA!!!
England lost their opener! What the hell?????????
I have no idea. I’m going to be positive and say they played better than they did in any of the games last cup, and hope they win their next two games (which they should, and will based on this performance.)
And, beyond being a Manchester United fan, I really just want Rooney to score. He’s too talented to not have at least one WC goal. And, I’m hoping he (finally) comes through in the next games.
Man, me too. An impending national tragedy if they don’t get through.
They should. They will. I’m thinking only positive thoughts for them. And that has nothign to do with the brackets I put together and any sort of betting involved. Or, it has everything to do with that…
