Miracles Do Happen

Posted by spritzophrenia on June 22, 2010

Here in little ole New Zealand, the big news – no, HUGE news – is the local football team the “All Whites”. That’s a “soccer” team for you non-European sports fans.

We’re a small country, football isn’t the top sport here, and it’s the first time we’ve had a team qualify for the tournament in 30 years. Not only did the All Whites draw with Slovakia, but they drew 1-1 with current world champions Italy.

This is so unexpected I think it really does qualify as a miracle. After all, sport is a religion for many people.

This post comes complete with eye candy. I thought some of you might appreciate pictures of shirtless men.

The All Whites thank the gods of football (www.stuff.co.nz).

By the way, if g0d exists and people on each side of a sports match pray, who does g0d listen to? I have my theory on this. What’s yours?
