Pakistan eh.

I'd been a little bit worried about New Zealand, especially after our close call against the Windies, and now here come Pakistan, knocking us off and improbably putting themselves in semi-final contention. Imagine if this team, so utterly written off by everyone, actually made it to the finals. It would be the most Pakistan thing to happen to world cricket.

Right now I am just desperately hoping Australia does not win, or the world cup will truly be irrelevant. I'd also prefer England and India not win it, because the dominance of the big three is bad for the global game. But gee I don't want to rely on my own country to be the force for good because we'll lose, and Pakistan, well...

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I want Australia to win, but only if we play England or India in the final. Fuck those cunts. But if we play literally anyone else, fuck us.

I am so here for Pakistan. Look at all this shit...

The greatest cricket match of all time. The greatest tennis match of all time. One city. Same time. Absolutely insane what went down yesterday. I have never experienced such unmitigated, unrelenting stress in my life. Both Federer and NZ lost. I'm heartbroken, completely spent, but also privileged to have experienced two of the greatest sporting events of all time.
