Good evening, sports fans! I guess the first quiestion that I have to ask is this: have you recovered from last night? I certainly haven’t, and will return to the subject once last time in order to briefly mention that we will most likely remember where we were yesterday evening for the rest of our…

The 200% World Cup: The Group B Final Round, Live!

The 200% World Cup: The Group B Final Round, Live!

Group B: land of contrasts. It wasn’t, might we date to venture, supposed to end up like this. Going into the first of the final round of group matches, it was supposed to be all about the tension and the excitement of two simultaneous matches being played, but the way in which this group has…

The 200% World Cup: World Cup Breakfast, Day 2: The Rain Falls On Spain

The 200% World Cup: World Cup Breakfast, Day 2: The Rain Falls On Spain

Last night in Salvador, the 2014 World Cup finals kicked into a gear in a manner that few would have predicted before a ball was kicked. It’s easy, when exposed to te calcified culture of club football, to forget that dynasties come and go over time, but nothing can demonstrate the relentless passing of time…

The 200% World Cup: Artist’s Impression Number 2

The 200% World Cup: Artist’s Impression Number 2
