The world readies itself for soccer madness (football to the rest of the world)
The FIFA World Cup kicks off tomorrow in Germany (mere hours from now, given the time change) and I am all over that action. See, I have joined c's Blogger's Paradise peeps on the ESPN Pick 'Em site. I have logged my initial predictions - and between you and me, I have NO IDEA (really) what I am doing. But I am good guesser. And I can trash talk with the best of them, so no one will ever suspect.
Here is some mood music for the occasion: British band Embrace wrote the official anthem for this year's games. Although some scoffed, it is pretty dang triumphal sounding -- only occasionally lapsing into cheesy -- and the Oakenfold remix is even more booty-shakin-in-the-stands.
World At Your Feet (Oakenfold Radio Remix) - Embrace
Let the games begin.
