World Cup, Tienanmen Square


It's the 13th anniversary of the Tienanmen Square crackdown today. The candlelight vigil in Victoria park is down in numbers this year because of the World Cup: China is at their first ever Cup, and Chinese people the world over are going: "Who the heck are Costa Rica, and how did they trounce us so easily?" I mean, two-nil! W00t! Suddenly I have high hopes for Ireland in this cup. One-all against the African champions Cameroon, Germany aren't strong this year and Saudi Arabia seem to be trying to play a different game - probably table tennis or tiddlywinks. Whatever that was they were playing it wasn't football.
