Well, technically it's the World Championship. Lebanon plays in the inaugural game against my country of birth, but I doubt the excitement level in the streets of Beirut on that day will match that of the day Ba Ra Zil played Croatia in a dull game decided by a fortunate kick by a dude named Doodoo.
Personally, I think 2 wins in the group stage should be our goal. Then again I spoke with a member of the National Team a couple of weeks ago and they hadn't even began their headbutting drills. They seem to be taking the Brazil approach of just showing up obese and hoping to win it all.
Former President Hrawi passed away. He'll be remembered for kissing Claudia Schiffer and signing off on cute little 39% annual interest government loans.
Also, I was watching a really funny show on TV earlier with a cute old man who looks to be on his 9th wife and/or heart attack interviewing a cute caring country couple. As I watched I happened to see this cute little news item roll on the screen.
"Israel continues Gaza search for kidnapped soldier."
A cute little game of Hide n' Seek is all it is.
