Got up at 3.30am this morning to grab a Maxi Taxi into Sydney City with some mates for the game against Sweden.. Saw it at the iMax Theatre, Darling Harbour, awesome screen.. Crouch was about 11' 8".. :lol:

Shame about the lack of victory, but good to get the point..

Where did y'all watch it? I guess it was a late game? 7pm BST? Perfect pub time..

8pm - I was in the pub for the weekly pub quiz, but it was a low turnout because of the footy - everyone was at the other end of the pub glued to the screen.

Home. Pub planned but had been tucked up with a 5am start the following day :cry:

Much interest in Oz for the World Cup?

If there's a Sportijng Tournament on, and Australia are in it, nothing is more important.. :shock:

The front cover of the Sydney Morning Herald is awash with Green and Yellow.. Well, Red, White and Blue really, but you know what I mean.. It's all right here..

It becomes quite intoxicating..

As for us Poms, [and I'll try putting the chip on my shoulder down for a moment] we can do no right by the Aussie commentators. Didn't win, we're crap. Win and we didn't win convincingly enough.

I think the Aussies celebrated their game against Brazil, even though they lost, because they thought they shoulda won! :P
