With Germany Down 2 Goals To Italy, Merkel Cancels Press Conference

Tyler Durden's picture


No, we are not making this up:


In other news, Germany is down 0:2 to Italy right now, with the name of the guy scoring the second goal for Italy suspiciously close to Bailoutelli.

Some US-based readers can watch the game at the ESPN3 link below.

Wow 2 goals scored in 1 game, by the same team no less!

Is this a record for the EuroTrash Soccer Championships?

It's actually been quite a good tournament! I've enjoyed it.

Just because you Yanks arent happy unless the scoreline is 42 - 68 and there are fireworks, cheerleaders, ad-breaks and giant sodas any time someone scores ;)

The Italians will win the futbol game but they will be crushed in the bond market game.  Same for Spain.   Eurocup doesn NOT = Eurobond.

We get tired of seeing grown men writhing on the ground (and not just talking about Greek elected officials) and then miraculously being cured when 2 guys show up next to them with a stretcher.

Speaking of bullish news, Alien invasion bitchez!! 


As it turns out, the idea of aliens and UFOs isn't that farfetched to most Americans.

Here are some of the survey's most surprising findings:

-More than three quarters (77 percent) of those surveyed believe there are signs that aliens have visited Earth, and over half (55 percent) think Men in Black-style agents threaten those who report seeing them.

-More than a third (36 percent) believe aliens have already visited.

-Eighty percent believe the government has hidden information on UFOs from the public.

-Nearly two thirds (65 percent) think President Obama would be a better leader than Mitt Romney if an alien invasion were to happen.

-When it comes to superheroes, 21 percent think the Hulk would be their first call in an invasion, 12 percent would call Batman, and 8 percent say Spider-Man's their guy.

-In the event of an invasion, the respondents themselves would leave the fighting to superheroes and presidents, it seems--about a fourth said they would try to befriend the aliens, 13 percent said they would hide indoors, and just 5 percent said they'd try to "inflict bodily harm" on the invaders.

-Just 17 percent of those polled did not belive in UFOs; about half said they were unsure.

2-0 at halftime is the equvilant of a football score of 14-0 after Q1.   You would probably thnk that was a great football game,

Unfortunately for you, it usually takes real work and persistence to achieve a goal. Or would you prefer if the goal lines were 1 yard apart.

And it's 'foot' 'ball'.

... i just got back from spain and i was amazed how cheap everything is over there now... seems quite deflationary - Perhaps that is the answer to this supposedely unworkable euro without fiscal union stuff... people in less productive places, earn less and pay less for local services... oh and default on debts that cant be paid...


...crazy idea


...but yeah - they were going mental for the football in spain.... many resturants and shops were empty
