Kitzbuhel, Dusseldorf Results: Stuff Happens
Posted by gauloises1 on May 18, 2009
Team Germany, the heroes of the day.
Local heroes Germany took a 2-1 lead over the U.S., last year’s champions Sweden are up 2-1 over France, Italy are 2-1 up over Russia … for god’s sake, can’t someone have a different score? Why are you people such sheep?
Oh, and Argentina are 1-2 down (see what I did there? I gave it a different twist), because Maximo Gonzalez lost to Victor Troicki, and then Elf and Pico got beaten by Errol Flynn and some dude with tattoos. Which does not compute. How could such a hot team fail?!
