Ok, so ESPN2 is a wacky place to hang.  I just finished watching my fave team Germany beat Poland 1-0 in the World Cup (poor Poland hasn't beaten Germany in 85 years!!!).  My beloved Jurgen Klinsmann, whom I remember watching so fondly in the 1994 World Cup, is now their general manager, so I got to see him jumping up and down at their win as if he had scored the winning goal (which was a hot one!).  Nice job, Germany! They now lead their Group (or bracket, so to speak) with 2 wins, equalling 6 points.   Sehr gut!

I was screwing around online so I left it on that channel.  What do I see coming on next? Lacrosse? Sport fishing? Bocci?

Nope.  Dominoes.  Championship Dominoes, complete with commentary like this gem: ""In order to play competitive domino, your brain has to be fit."

I'm dead serious.  Now they're showing 'highlights' (I guess!) of the 2005 World Championship Domino Tournament.  No, I'm not shitting you. 

Don't they have surfing or (god forbid!) FENCING to show? Nope, only dominoes, apparently. Hell, even PING-PONG is better than this! What's next, Full-contact Scrabble?!?! 

I'm with you, Gilbert Gottfried: this is definitely the "WTF?! Moment of the Day"!

Seriously? Rock, paper, scissors? WTF?!

I don't know if Ireland has a team. I'll have to check.

I'd play Full-Contact Scrabble. In a heartbeat.

And yay Germany! I was watching a bit of it. I like them the best. They're all pretty hot, but most soccer players are...

Yeah, the German's rock! Google Jurgen Klinsmann one day (he's their GM and former striker) when you get a chance; he's the man. (Warning: Bragging ahead! I also have his autograph! =^)

Ok, that icon is the best. Where on earth are you finding this?
