In which I defend my crappy team...

So I read an American blog today that said Australia played crappy in their opening match against Germany. Well, excuse me but I would like to see you do better against the favourites to win the whole thing!

Usually I don't get my knickers in a twist over much, but to say that Australia is crap at soccer just because we got smashed by Germany and that we "gave up" after Germany scored two goals is a little bit unfair.

Australia is okay at soccer, we are best on the football field, the cricket pitch and in the pool. Excuse us for trying something out that we also like doing, no need to tell us that we're crap just because we lost. What is this, primary school?

Yes we're crap, but that's only ok when we say it.

Thank you and goodday.

PS: I did my first exam this morning and it went great!!!

Sorry to hear your team was labelled as a crappy team. Our team (Slovenia) gets that a lot, haha, but this year, they've been great so far. Don't worry, your team may have lost one game, but that doesn't mean anything, and as you said, you're really good at other sports.

Cool for the exam, one down, yay!

This is the World Cup! It's hard ball baby. The English goal keeper that let one go past our "crappy," "silly" American team is getting death threats. Getting called crappy is tame with this group.

The best revenge is to play well and win - hopefully both of our teams will do that. But frankly I'm just happy to watch everyone play - crappy or not!

Good luck to your Aussie Team. And I've seen you guys in the water, you're awesome!
