Love For Sale

Well, well—what is there, really, to be said about England’s little jaunt to Trinidad? We are deep in FIFA kabuki here, and I especially like the part about the FA’s anxiety that its World Cup bid not be seen as “for sale.” They’re delighted to participate in the 100th anniversary of Trinidadian football—man, who wouldn’t be? A chance to chum around over rum cocktails with the estimable Jack Warner is not to be missed. My question is, can someone dig up a plausible commemoration in the Pacific Northwest, so we can con England into playing here? Sadly, we missed the 30th anniversary of Soccer Bowl ’77, but there must be something else. Chugger Adair’s birthday?

UPDATE: Looks like everything is going very well.

    More like FIFA bukkake than kabuki, if you ask me . . .
