WC: Argentina 1 – 0 Germany: 49th minute

Sports announcers crack me up. No sooner had Marcelo Balboa and the other guy finished talking about how Kahn was calling the German goalkeeper Lehman “flawless” and they were fawning over his three shutouts than Argentina takes a corner kick and heads it “flawlessly” into the back of the onion bag.

Talk about the ultimate jinx. These announcers were just begging for that goal to be scored. To be fair, Balboa (who I do think does some of the best color other than Tommy Smythe) did say that Lehman had been just as lucky as he was “flawless.” That was a great moment. I look forward to seeing the replays of that. I hope the commentary is kept with it as well.

  1. Poor argentina. I wish that they had won the match. Many people in bangladesh are supporters of Argentina. For example, a tea seller used to give 33%
    discount to the Argentina supporters
    . I guess you can write about it in your
    blog too.
