To be fair, I never watched Fawlty Towers (I just didn't like it back then, even though I'm a big fan of Monty Python!), but the joke is still old. ^^
Monty Python can work just as well for this!
Guess what the first thing to jump into my head is when I see English football fans dressed as knights?
But yeah, you're right essentially.
You mean "Dinner for one"? Yeah, for some reason it was never big in other countries.
That's the one. I've seen clips of it, but I don't think it's ever been shown in full on TV here. In fitting fashion, when my Dad had a recent job in Dusseldorf, one of the guys there started talking about it with him. 'It's really funny!' he said, 'Okay then.' my Dad replied.
Anyway, can't wait for USA - Ghana later this evening. I really don't know who I should root for in this match. On the one hand the US team is pretty strong this year and they deserve to advance to the quarter finals.
On the other hand I always liked the team of Ghana and I want them to perform well...
I'm in a similar mindset. I think the American team has surprised quite a couple. It was always the mild assumption that they'd make it out of the group, but I don't think many thought they were going to wind up appreciating the side that greatly before the tournament started, at least here amongst the vocal British football fans. Their performance against Slovenia in particular showed that they actually have a strong, recuperating side. I'd like to see them do well, maybe just to impress casual viewers on all sides.
But yeah, again, it's a shame that Ghana are the only African side to have made it through, and the great support they have from everywhere will be bright tonight. They've also impressed many, especially in their attack efforts - their game with Germany was more exciting and close than I had imagined beforehand. Individual players, Gyan, Boateng, Asamoah, etc. show some real effort and should be given some thumbs-up.
So no, I don't know. I'm not even sure who the underdog is supposed to be, so I can't just take that usually-easy way out.
Should be good :D
