  1. Very nice video, but - unfortunately for Nike - this is Messi's time.

  2. Here is a challenge for you Roger.

    1. Explain the offside rule?

    2. When can you not be offside?

    3. Why does Wayne Rooney look like Shrek?

  3. Your not getting too shocked and miffed to some of irrationality shown in the comments! I hope not. Keep your peccer up, as we long suffering liverpool supporters say!

  4. Can Bayern stuff Messi or will AGW turn Madrid into a hot box with temps .5 degrees warmer than in Munich rendering the Germans helpless! :D

  5. Well this should end all the kerfuffle over Greek debt and the Euro concern for global warming.

    People will be too busy with really important things.

    Unfortunately for Messi, most of the rest of the Argentina team is crap! Not only that, Maradona (who ran over a journalist yesterday!) has adopted the novel approach of picking only one full backs in the squad and plans to play 4 centre halves in defence. Which is odd to say the least. Particularly given the importance of the full back in the modern game:

  10. Actually, Roger, there are some 'here' that appreciate your equanimity in battle, as well as peace. Or, as the younger ones' might say, your one dude!

  12. "1. Explain the offside rule?"


    Malcolm. Not all Americans are ignorant and thick.

    Matt Taibbi (Rolling Stone) told me that it isn't possible to write more than a paragraph about soccer without using the word 'gay'. I replied that David Beckham is still straight despite being married to Posh Spice for more than 10 years.

  14. Ahh booooring, yawn. Engerland, as usual and thanks to Rooney, will be eliminated in the quarter final. That annoying brat Ronaldo will be eliminated by a North Korean missile in the group phase (good!). Frank "fugly" Riberi will be jailed for underaged sex. Do I need to go on?

    Go Holland GO!

  16. Plan for a dip in your grad students' productivity in a month's time, Dr. Pielke :) Enjoy the game!

    Too bad Ronaldinho is not selected for the Brazilian squad.
