God doesn't watch football

I have a friend called Søren. We met up last night at a pub in Copenhagen to watch Italy play France. None of us were supporting Italy, and prior to the start of the match, Søren said: "If Italy is eliminated today, it will be God's punishment because the elected Berlusconi!"

As it turns out, and it has been confirmed again, God doesn't watch football.

Erik, I'm very proud to have been quoted on your excellent website. The correct quote however is: "If Italy is eliminated it will be god's punishment of the Italians for re-electing Berlusconi". I do think God watches football - what else would she be doing with all that time? She is just waiting and god i hope they will be kicked out by Spain :-) Pura vida, el soren

Hmmm, ok.
But I have great, huge doubts that Spain can defeat Italy.
History... Dont underestimate it: Italians have the winner mentality - Spain has won shit...

You clearly don't know true pain...I am french and my need to have the Italians lose went a bit deeper. Now that we are out, I have to live with the shame of not only have been eliminated in the most embarrassing of ways (7 goals scored on us and only 2 against). Also be happy that you don't have to deal with the mind numbing stupidity of the FFF, that will probably keep that inept moron of a coach Raymond Domenech. HE has single handedly set French footbal backkk 10 years. Even sweeden and Romania played with more heart and passion. I'm disgusted!!
