    El Rey is absolutely out of his mind for doing this but when it comes to DC, I shouldn’t be surprised.
    I do believe that no good could come from it and I’m scared shitless, last time he played DC while injured (ironically, against Sweden as well) it was a torturous 5 setter and it aggravated his injury and he eventually had hip surgery thanks to his DC heroics. BUT I want to see him badly so that sort of rekindled my interest in this tie.

    Vamos Nalby! Vamos Argentina!

    When I saw El Rey I couldn’t help but smile. I miss the dude. Can we pretend it’s Paris and Madrid 2007?

    Also, the Swiss teams jackets are adorably Ralph Lauren rip-off, great for prancing around on a horse playing polo, douchetastic. They scream ‘we’re not nice Swiss, we are mean cold Swiss like the ones from Cool Runings with the einz, zwei, drei. And the banging of each other’s helmets.’ But of course they’re not mean. Except maybe Severin. It’s hard to tell with a name like that.

    …Anyway.

    The only time I really like Steps or Berdie are when they’re together.
