    Fellow soccer fans,

    Someone in our Singapore office sent me the following link this morning.
    http://www.excely.com/world-cup-2006.html

    This web page has a free downloadable Excel spreadsheet showing the full World Cup 2006 match timetable. Just select your timezone in the drop-down field and the table updates itself to show match start times for your timezone. Cool!

    Your wives will no doubt thank me for this. :mrgreen:

    Yada Yada, if she only knew who you were she says she'd love to thank you in person :rolleyes: .

    Unfortunately, she doesn't share my enthusiasm for the world game...to her it's Union.

    It's a shame Yada Yada won't be at OzFest III this weekend to receive his thanks in person. :rolleyes:

    What about the black and reds? :D

    Perhaps it is just as well I'm not at Oz Fest III!

    Even having played soccer for 30 years (yes, showing my age now), I am not fanatical about watching the world cup. I may watch a few games, but I am not going to stay up all night to do so.

    Now my soccer watching is generally limited to the Under 12's game on Saturday morning. I am normally carrying a flag and running up and down the sideline, which is a real turnaround given some of the things I have said under my breath about linesman and the off-side rule and their optical accuracy :D.

    Heh heh heh! What goes around...:mrgreen:

    I played many years too, and more recently got my referee badge and ref'd both junior and senior (i.e. all-age) matches. I'd referee or run the line for the grown-ups any day over the juniors. That can be hell! :D

    I suppose I could wear a helmet. :p

    Hope you all have fun. I would have liked to attend and to meet Brett Godfrey but I already spend enough time away from my family.

    Hmmm. If you started playing soccer at 4 years of age and you have been playing for 30 years that would make you 34 years old. :shock: That is not very old at all. You are still a spring chicken. :)

    I like that theory ... unfortunately there are a few holes in it :rolleyes:.

    I don't think I mentioned how old I was when I started, not how long ago I played my last game.

    Yes but no one needs to know the truth if we keep that information confined to the playground. ;)

    Mrs NM knows the truth ... and she is all that matters in this area :p. Lindsay also know your calculations are not possibe. Maybe if I had started playing soccer when I was 4 years old I may have actually learned some decent skills and been good at it .... alas I missed my prime.

    World Cup matches

    Don't know about everybody else, but I'll be glad in a way when it finishes...it's almost finished me :shock: (all these 1am, 3am or 5am wake-ups).

    although it has allowed me to stay abreast of FT matters when the games have been a little slow.

    England v Portugal 0-0 at full time in the 1/4 Final . Here comes extra time :cool:. Excellent, Portugal through after penalties.

    Now to watch Brazil v France.

    They are hell?
    How about their parents? From what I have seen watching junior sports, parents are hell!

    Thought for the day:

    You know you're getting older when you fall asleep on the sofa in front of your parents-in-law and wife's 5 year old niece (when they're over for lunch) and you're the one who has to go for the kindy nap...I woke up two hours later :shock: :D

    Note to self: you're getting older :-|

    Yes, that's in fact what I meant. The kids are fine. The parents and some coaches leave much to be desired. :(

    World Cup SF

    Well, with only 1 match left to watch, I can almost get back to full night sleeps. But I am disappointed with who made the final.

    Yeah, both finalists! The Italians because of how the defeated Australia; and the French ... well just because they are French :p .
