34 minutes in, and it’s looking real, real ugly. It’s 0-2 for Satan’s squad, who seem to be having way too much fun out there.
See the Guardian’s minute-by-minute here.
UPDATE: Lee Chung-yong scores! Korea 1: Satan 2 at the half. Seriously, Korea needed that goal, because I’m no football expert, but it seemed the Argies were putting on a clinic. This could be far, far worse than 2-1.
A funny from the Guardian:
“German TV have just trotted out a stat that the Korean players are on average ten centimetres shorter than their opponents,” blabs Iain Copestake. “However, they have failed to mention the drag coefficients cause by Argentina having far more hair.”
UPDATE: Yeom Ki-hun could have just tied it!
Didn’t. But he could have. You gotta give Korea credit — they’re putting up a fight.
Oh, and here’s the American view of football, from the Simpsons:
UPDATE: Argies go up 3—1. I guess it had to happen eventually.
Diego Maradona’s still the Antichrist, though.
UPDATE: 4–1 Argies. Gulp.
UPDATE: Alright, the slaughter has mercifully ended. Argies 4–1, but Diego Maradona still has to go home as Diego Maradona.
