This is some sports thing, yes?

I see it fine, just off the margins funny.

I had a brief mental meltdown expecting the second line to be a pentameter. After I got over that shock, everything fell into place nicely.

Hi will, yep it's like the world series in baseball, except that it involves teams from more than one country :) :)

Just to qualify is massive for us. most aussies would have jumped around screaming and had some simple dactylic verses pop into their heads i think.

I too was expecting that pentameter.

Anyway, congratulations (for the qualification and the poem).

Never mind Chad - just look dumb next time someone from the USA mentions "World Series baseball" :wink:
I couldn't believe it - exams over, delayed birthday celebration (because of exam), presents AND the World Cup qualifier - all on one day. It was all too much! (And I like the Greek too!)

Chad, congrats. I watched the second half on the internet at 5am yesterday morning and held my breath as Oz downed Uruguay in penalties.

Hope you get a good draw.
