Has anyone seen our very own owlhouse around these parts lately? Someone didn't bad mouth anything Australian have they?

The dream World Cup match would be Sweden v Denmark. The scoreboard would read:


And the leftover letters would be:

Maybe Australia is just trying to work out what they did to make the Philippines so angry.

There are many anagrams for the leftover letters in NoMich

In Danish: har terning

In Swedish: hant ringer

My favorite anagram for NoMich is in the long form dialect of the tribal languages of southeast Antarctica:


Crazy, I know, right?!

Last I remember seeing, owl was located in Cambodia or parts nearby.

From the ITV broadcaster before the start of penalties: "England and penalty kicks...who here feels sick?"

Norway now likely pulling for Sweden to give Maggie Thatcher's boys another beating.

I rue the day that I bought a modestly priced Samsung television solely on a value basis, as the color rendition is such that I can barely stand to look at the deep cranberry/magenta kits that have been worn by Belgium, England and the like. They look like a disturbing dessert flavor.

The yellow teams also are more vivid than roadway workers' safety vests, but that I can live with.

Why is Fox Sports still telling people Ronaldo was being a good sport to help Cavani off the pitch? It couldn't be more obvious that he was ushering him off the field to get a little more time for Portugal.

I'm assuming it's because he did so in a gentle/respectful manner, and not like this.

If it came from Fox it MUST be true.
