The FIFA World Cup kicks off tomorrow in Germany (mere hours from now, given the time change) and I am all over that action. See, I have joined c’s Blogger’s Paradise peeps on the ESPN Pick ‘Em site. I have logged my initial predictions – and between you and me, I have NO IDEA (really) what I am doing. But I am good guesser. And I can trash talk with the best of them, so no one will ever suspect.
Here is some mood music for the occasion: British band Embrace wrote the official anthem for this year’s games. Although some scoffed, it is pretty dang triumphal sounding — only occasionally lapsing into cheesy — and the Oakenfold remix is even more booty-shakin-in-the-stands.
World At Your Feet (Oakenfold Radio Remix) – Embrace
Let the games begin.
