WC 2006 Match Chat: Spain vs. Ukraine, 6 am PT

Live from Leipzig!

La Furia Roja take on Zbirna! (If anyone can write that for me in Ukrainian go right ahead)

Spain is the World Cup's chronic underachiever. This is their 12th appearance and they've never done better than a fourth place finish backn in 1950. In 2002 Spain lost a penalty kick tiebreaker to Korea in the quarterfinals.

It's the first trip to the World Cup for Ukraine (no "the" please!) Ukraine's hopes rest on the health of Andriy Shevchenko, who is a big star for AC Milan.

It's odd, I hate most of the Spaniards I know, but I feel really bad for the Spanish tea. I'm oddly excited for this game.

Weird I how I almost knew that corner was going to result in a goal.

Ukraine is in a world of hurt.

So is Ukraine going to be as humiliated as the US? Lucky for them they get to recover against Tunisia and Saudi Arabia.

The one Ukraine fan who visits here must be still asleep.

I remember during the 1996 Olympics I had the biggest crush on Lilia Podkopayeva.

The Crown Prince of Spain has found a very attractive woman to marry.

How did he manage that?

Some guys have inherent advantages.

The USA is no longer the worst team in the tournament!

Ouch. Well, I did wake up in time to see that 4th goal...

7 - The current Ukrainian President did not do too badly himself Bob.

6 - Ah, but do you remember Oksana Baiul?

The Crown Prince of Spain is also very tall.

The Crown Prince of Spain has an IMDB entry:

Felipe de Borbón!

Hmm, that was kind of like rooting for the PRC team in the World Baseball Classic, but without the whole evil villain thing.

And now back to sleep! We'll get 'em next time...maybe...
