The Zionist’s Guide To The World Cup–Day 22
WARNING: This blog will contain an obscure reference to the Napoleonic Wars as the 1812 Invasion of Russia/War & Peace theme is driven completely into the ground. But first, let's look at today's quarterfinals.... It was yet another day of...

The Zionist’s Guide to the World Cup — Day 21
And then there were eight.... Tomorrow, the first half of the quarterfinals will take place. From a pure soccer perspective, the remaining heavyweights will go at it. Alas, from a Zionist’s perspective, all that remain are lightweights. The day begins with...

The Zionist’s Guide To The World Cup–Day 20
Pick your analogy: 1) Rosencrantz and Guildenstern repeatedly flipping a coin which always ends up heads in the first scene of "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead;" or 2) Lucy snatching away the other kind of football just before Charlie Brown...

The Zionist’s Guide to the World Cup — Day 15
Good news from Samara (if such a thing is possible): The Coffee Growers of Colombia beat the impressive Senegalese squad in a decisive match in Group H, 1-0. In doing so, Los Cafeteros not only win the group, but...

The Zionist’s Guide to the World Cup–Day 14
Wow. Auf wiedersehen, Deutschland. For the first time ever, the Germans failed to make it out of the group stage at the World Cup. To add to the insult, their decisive defeat came at the hands of a South Korean...

The Zionist’s Guide to the World Cup — Day 13
Yeah, yeah, I know: the Zionist's great hope for Civilization--Australia--crashed out of the World Cup today. Also, Argentina squeaked by a determined Nigeria with a goal in the 86th minute. But neither of those were the most important thing...
