Muchas gracias to Argentina for clubbing Serbia-Montenegro 6-0, far, far harder than what the Czech Republic handed us on Monday. Beautiful goals, beautiful play. And they got (Barcelona's ) Lionel Messi some World Cup minutes, the Argentinian Boy Wonder injured since early spring. Messi looked good (an assistant to the ordinarily hated Hernan Crespo!! Goal!!), and Argentina looks awesome.
And for your blogging pleasure The New Republic's World Cup Blog. And it's actually about soccer. Great stuff.
