BBC announcer, live from Berlin, Saturday afternoon:
"We had a sweepstakes for the match, and I put my money on five goals for Sweden. Clearly I lost."

TV6 announcer, live from Port of Spain, ditto, turning to his co-announcer:
"So what do you think about that victory--I mean draw?"

Friend in Oxford, poet and scholar, via email, Saturday night:
"!!!*i* *want* *a* *shaka* *hislop* *t-shirt*!!!"

And my 1989 Strike Squad jersey has turned up. My brother borrowed it on Saturday. It's mine on Thursday.

Gooooaaaaalllll Soca Warriors! Oh my goodness, Thursday go be commess in d place, as we Trinis like to say. Saturday's performance has really psyched up people. One of my friends even went into a reverie, "imagine if T&T win d World Cup". Lol. Yes we're up against the giants on Thursday, but the Soca Warriors really have people hopeful that we can pull off a David against, England, the Goliath. I'll be draped in my large T&T flag. Goaaal Warriors :)
