First, thanks to Fiona, who has regained control of her email account, for THIS hilarious story about increased condom sales in S. Korea after their team wins.
And thanks to Dave Barry for the quote below about the behavior of the French team.
So despite the bad call, there is hope for the U.S. team. This is more than you can say for the French team, which -- I am not making this up -- went on strike. Yes! They went on strike during the World Cup. This has to be one of the most spectacular exhibitions of Frenchness in the history of Frenchitude.
Getting the occasional Dave Barry column in your local paper is the only reason I can imagine anyone would live in Miami! You can read the rest of the column HERE.
Oh, and speaking of Korea, North Korea hired Chinese actors to go to their team's games and cheer for them. Not sure why, since no one in N. Korea has been allowed to watch the games, until Dear Leader approves of the results. I wonder if in North Korea the winner of the Cup will be North Korea.
