With Italy's victory over Germany today, I think it is safe to say that my interest in the World Cup is officially gone. Now it is simply a matter of who I want to lose the least. While I can't actually support France (God forbid!), I suppose I would want to see them victorious over Portugal or Italy. For one thing, Martyloo has been so good about supporting England with us, so it would be rude not to support France now that any half-way decent country is out. But more to the point, I just can't face living in downtown Toronto if either Portugal or Italy win. It is just too painful. I am a sore loser, and this is why I should never attempt to follow professional sport of any kind.
