09:01 pm - The Boys from Tegucigalpa
Well a very lovely person on my f-list has set up a World Cup Sweepstake. If my team wins I get a big bag of sweets.

And my team is... er Honduras.

Quick, look at this lj-post about which team has the hottest players. Ferrero Rocher who plays for Paraguay or something. Impossible to choose.

Checks Honduras - not even that sexy. Damn.

Honduras are perhaps not the team people are desperately hoping to draw in a sweepstake, no. But perhaps they will be surprisingly LOVELY and perhaps they have been secretly learning football amazingly, but not telling, so as not to raise expectations. Most of the things I have read about your team are about how you don't have much talent, but your coach is VERY MOTIVATING. Perhaps he really really is, and it'll be like a sports movie montage championship where they pull it together and AMAZE THE WORLD. Maybe.

It is a *very* big bag of sweets and I've still got about ten stakes to come.

Excellent. It will be like that film Cool Runnings about the Jamaican bobsleigh team. The ghost of John Candy makes them believe in themselves, and they amaze the world. I confidently expect this to happen now.

I can't parse that sentence that starts with Ferrero Rocher. Is there a footballer whose actual name is actually Ferrero Rocher? Or is it some new expression for "I fancy this person and would be tickled if they were to bring me a pyramid of posh chocs on a tray, clothing optional"?

That sentence was intended to convey my sudden inability to think induced by exposure to so many pretty footballers. So, yes, the pyramid thing.

Bizarrely, I had lunch yesterday with a friend who said his nephew was helping to train the Honduran football team under a scheme sponsored by the German government (or some other German body).

I hope he realises how much is riding on that training. I mean, some of those sweets are delicious.

I think he said Christof (unsure of spelling) trained Costa Rica last time, but I'm afraid they lost all three games.
