The World Cup begins for Australia

After only staying up to watch the first half of a dismally-policed football World Cup opener for Australia, I awoke this morning to the news that Tim Cahill had stamped his authority on the match and scored two goals in the dying minutes, before John Aloisi slotted a third to give Australia its first ever World Cup goals. And our first win!

Triple J called for a new public holiday, to be named Tim Cahill Day. It would fall on 12 June every year. Thats sure to be right around Queen's Birthday, hopefully giving people the opportunity for a 7 day weekend if they play their sickies right.

I think Kaiserslautern can drown in green and gold for a few days yet. Next, it will be Munich on 18th June against Brazil, then Stuttgart for Croatia on 22nd June.

Bandwagon riding by me? Sure, why not.

But I'd bet Johnny Warren is happy wherever he is.

Insert tagline here...
