Looking like Times Square … seedy in parts, exciting in others; unless of course seediness excites you.

Oops, how the heck did that get in there?
P.S. Why, tell me why, the schedule-makers in Brazil would be putting two matches today – Costa Rica vs. England and Italy vs. Uruguay – at the same time, noon? Enough said … For now? Plenty more on the strange scheduling perhaps tomorrow. And while we’re at it, soccer goalies dress in colours different from the rest of their team so that they – the goalies, that is – may be differentiated from the rest of the players, who, for instance, aren’t allowed the use of either their hands or their arms on the ball, while the goalie is permitted to catch corner-kicks and crosses, for example. When everyone goes up for a cross or a corner, to defend or to head it, or, as in the case of the goalie – to repel or catch it – one must be able to tell immediately whether or not it was the goalie who punched the ball away, legally, and the way to differentiate here would be to observe the colours the “puncher” was sporting.
Get it? Got it? Good.
Enjoy the fete.
