Yes, it’s time. In fact, it is almost past time. Time is running out. After more than a month, the 32 hopeful national football teams that came to win the World Cup trophy in South Africa has been reduced to just two …….Netherlands and Spain. The final is this weekend and then the wild vuvuzela infused carnival will be over.
And by then, it would be too late for ……….
The Lone Grey Squirrel may not have been fortunate enough to be one of the hundreds of thousand fans splurging a small fortune to experience the football matches live in South Africa but the squirrel was one of just only a few thousand who got to get close to the World Cup trophy and ……got his picture taken with it!
We came so close to getting our grubby paws on it. Just think. If we had succeeded in swiping it, we would have had the cup and those teams would be playing for nothing! Mwahahaha.
Sadly though we were foiled and wrestled to the ground by several burly plainclothes security thugs with no sense of humor. Anyway, Netherlands or Spain, when you finally get to touch the trophy, carefully examine the base of the trophy and you should see the scratches from where they pried my claws off it.
Finally, no excuse is ever needed for me to put up a Shakira video on my blog but as it happens, it is World Cup related.
