1. Yesterday on CNN:



2. Tomorrow in Tehran:



3. Today in Nuremberg:



I heard that the ABC commentary on the Iran game was horrid, and that the U.S. sportscaster fancied themselves political commentators. I wonder if the same sports anchors will be offering political commentary on the Haditha massacre or Bush's fundamentalist religious agenda during the U.S. game tomorrow?

Thankfully, I was spared the propaganda because I was watching the Iranian broadcast. When Golmohammadi made Iran's first and only goal (pictured above), sumi said: "i knew he would make a goal because he has a gol in his name". Hahaha!

Iran played super in the first half, tying the game 1-1, and then deteriorated into a big mess in the second half, while mexico scored twice in the last twenty minutes. It was a well-deserved win for them, and for their goalie Sanchez, who has just lost his dad.

Oh well, mexico may have soccer, but iran is enriching uranium! (i'm kidding)
