The English speaking broadcast of the World Cup match between England and Germany was like listening to a golf match. They whispered. It was Ian something or other, a monotone, crestfallen Brit, who sounded suicidal after Germany’s 4th goal. I had no particular interest in the outcome, but I myself was becoming disturbingly depressed and nearly fell asleep at the 60 minute mark so I had to find the Spanish speaking broadcast to wake me up so that I could really fully appreciate the spirit of the game. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!
