I really don’t have much to write about today. I am having trouble coming up with topics. I have started an entry for the contest at The Clarity of Night, but I’m not sure how well it will turn out.
I followed the Australia match on the Internet yesterday and am very disappointed with the result. From what I have read, the call in the penalty box was iffy at best. In my mind, if the penalty wasn’t clear, no call should be made. It is a shame to see diving be rewarded. If this were the Stanley Cup playoffs, for example, and it was the third period of a tied game, you almost have to kill a guy to get called for a penalty shot. That is obviously the other extreme, however I would rather see the players determine the winner of a game rather than the referees. Either way, it was a good run by the Socceroos. I’m sure they made their country proud. It was just an absolute heartbreaking way to lose.
I am now cheering for England or Ghana to win the World Cup. I hope I don’t jinx them too.
