The English actually have my sympathy this morning

England_defeatThis morning is not a good day to be an Englishman. First we had the “Brexit” vote last week, and the almost instant buyer’s remorse that overtook much of the country.

Now we have this: England loses 2:1 to Iceland in the UEFA Euro Championship.

You heard that right.

Iceland.

The country that “invented” football lost to a nation of roughly 332,530 people that “invented” Björk, and who can only play outdoors a few months a year.

Oh, will the misery never end?

Here’s a sentence that I wasn’t expecting to write anytime soon: the English actually have my sympathy this morning. God save the Queen.

About a1skeptic

A disturbed citizen and skeptic. I should stop reading the newspaper. Or watching TV. I should turn off NPR and disconnect from the Internet. We’d all be better off.
