Sucks to be Iran's keeper right now.

I really wish the announcers would cut it out with the whole backstory human interest bullshit. This ain't the Olympics. Let's watch some soccer. Sanchez's father was worth mentioning...once or twice. You could tell Balboa was getting a little uncomfortable about the other (really annoying) guy making such a big deal about it.

And then all the bullshit about the political situation, as if the Iranian team is made up of politicos who are out there for ideological reasons. For all the brouhaha you'd have thought they were actively enriching uranium at midfield in the 60th minute. They're fucking footballers - let them play.

Kudos to Bravo. What a great match for a young player.

Now I'm off to buy a beard trimmer (I'm gonna rock the full-on chops again for a while), and to change my oil. Should be back to "study" during the next match.

I'm so going to fail the bar.
