As much as I was attempting to avoid the FIFA World Cup...

... I can't.

Gawd... I can't stand soccer, or football, or whatever you call it these days. But that's just me. I fully understand the passion that overtakes fans.

Anyway, this little bit came out of the recent loss of Spain to Switzerland. (My emphasis)
Some have pointed to their lack of cutting edge. Some have pointed to their opponents' rugged determination. But many in Spain have blamed their defeat to Switzerland in their opening World Cup game on Sara Carbonero, the partner of the Spain captain Iker Casillas.

Casillas was at least partly at fault for Gelson Fernandes's goal that gave Switzerland their 1-0 win and fingers have already been pointed at Carbonero, a journalist at a Spanish TV station, who prior to the game was filming footage to camera behind Casillas's goal.

Hmmm... Brooks Speck gives it a little more perspective.


Stop the ball? Gaze at Sara?

What ball?
