WC2010 : Day 13, Half Time

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Trying to watch it live on streaming (at work – but don’t tell the boss!)

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Nothing against the BBC
Nothing against the compan-y
Nothing against Tim Berners-Lee

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Fortunately, as yet
Nothing against D James
And as far as I can tell, no-one’s made a hames

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But trying to watch the streaming
With all it’s stop start projection
Is filling me … with ….
trepidation

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The ball is in the box, it’s hanging in the air …
It’s still hanging ….
Hanging …
Hanging …

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Does JT get his head to it?
Or does Birsa score?
Pray do tell us
Cables – please send us more!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 “And Johnson sends a searching pass……”
And I’m all set to send out a search party
Behind the back of the pc
For that pass is more absent, or awol, than received

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 And now Frank has a free….
The ball has left his boot….
The wall could actually pace forward and block it
At the eighth pace, at this rate

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 At least the fans, are drowning out the vuvuzelas
If only the team could now follow suit
And drown out the doubts

10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 Rooney’s on the edge of the box
He’s shaping up to shoot……
It’s like a Matrix moment
I can see all his options – but not the outcome

11 Leave a comment on verse 11 0 Corner to us, Frank whips it, JT flicks it ….
Upson and Rooney at the ready….
My, they’re so steady, not an inch, do they flinch…..
Yawn… ball rolls wide

12 Leave a comment on verse 12 0 Another corner, jostling….
And they stay entwined for ever
The referee has forever
To form his reaction ….. Quiet word

13 Leave a comment on verse 13 0 Rooney has dropped deep….
And stays deep
“Wayne we want you up the other end!”
Falls on deaf ears, along dumb wires

14 Leave a comment on verse 14 0 Free. Ball played short, we keep possession
The pc keeps possession too … wait … wait
And wait …
Again…

15 Leave a comment on verse 15 0 Ball worked out wide to Milner
He’s on the touchline
And stays on the touchline
No one moves…. Swings his boot …

16 Leave a comment on verse 16 0 Well I saw the ball arrive ….
In the box ….
And Defoe ahead of his man ….
But ’twas another Matrix moment

17 Leave a comment on verse 17 0 G…..
O…..
A…..
L !! …. !! …… !! ….. !!

18 Leave a comment on verse 18 0 Well if I thought the live feed
Was slow eating
Then the replay
Was terminal !

19 Leave a comment on verse 19 0 Hang on, that next action
Wasn’t a replay
But a replica move….
Keeper reaches it, Lamps sends it just over….

20 Leave a comment on verse 20 0 He holds his head in his hands
And doesn’t remove them….
Frank, you can’t stay like that …
All game!

21 Leave a comment on verse 21 0 Rooney lays it onto Stevie G…
Picks his spot….
And I could do dot to dot…
While I await, the big frame freeze

22 Leave a comment on verse 22 0 Handanovic gets a hand to it
But spills it ….
It’s a Robert Green moment…
But has an eternity to rectify …. Robert green with envy

23 Leave a comment on verse 23 0 Anyway, I won’t bore you with …
The rest of the ….
First …
Half ….

24 Leave a comment on verse 24 0 H-T
1-0
Yee….
sss!
