Superstitious

So the Soca Warriors are back home and the Government made them all Millionaires by rewarding their efforts in the World cup and yes i did watch the match between Paraguay and feel bad because i still get that nigling feeling that maybe if i did NOT watch the match it may have had a different outcome but i am not the only superstitious one my girlfriend who was watching the match in a popular bar here said she started crying as the guys came out on the field because they were wearing white and she thought that was bad luck because the team always do better when they wear red and that in a war you wave a white flag to concede and by them wearing white they did not have a chance i just told her don't go around telling too many people that because they may think you are crazy.

I haven't been able to watch all the matches but am really looking forward to that match on Friday between Germany and Argentina i actually made a bet with someone that Germany will win and i know i have no business making bets especially since i know nothing about football i usually support teams based on silly things like how good looking the players are and the main reason why i am supporting Germany is for sentimental reasons i liked the way the German fans supported the Soca Warriors so i am supporting their team in return and my back up team is Brazil and of course the reason why i am supporting them is because i looooove Ronaldinho ohhh i think he's cute ( me fanning myself) not as cute as Russel Latapy though.... ohhhh weee....( me fanning myself some more ).

The Soca Warriors were great! Kudos to them! Millionaires huh? Lucky bastards!

I like Germany over Argentina this year too. Normally I hate the German teams with all my guts, but I am loving this team.

Like you, I think Brazil will win it all. Still Germany is my backup team...

Let me get this straight, the government took tax money from people who are working their ass off and gave it to a bunch of people who kick a ball?

Not to put the Soca Warriors down for what they accomplished (They played tough matches and did well) but I'm thinking that money probably could have been distributed in a better way.

Am I looking at this from the wrong angle?

Chris you are funny and you are not the only person asking that question i guess they had to reward them for the exposure the country got from their efforts i mean they are like heros to us especially the youths and its like a way of letting the young ones know that no matter what you do if you give it your all and do your best you will be rewarded i think if the government did NOT reward the guys we would have been really disappointed.
Kami girl i can't get anyone to agree with me on this but have you sen him smile? really cute to me.

Agree with you Abeni - they deserve money and the accolades. Firstly it involved hard work to get to the top of football, and secondly they have provided great exposure for T'dad and the Caribbean.

As for your superstitios friend - remind her that England usually where's white, but then again the last time they won the World Cup was in the 60s.
