Forecast: Sunny, Warm, Continuing Soccalypse

The opening ceremonies of the World Cup today included much of the usual insane, over-the-top Olympica pageantry, plus Robbie Williams.  Nothing like a gray-haired, English white guy rapping incoherently as he swivels and prances around a stadium to say, "cutting edge."

Next up was Putin, to give the opening speech. The Fox announcer gushed: "He doesn't suffer fools, and he wants his team to do well." O-kay.

After that, it was time for the game between our two closest allies in the world, Russia and Saudi Arabia. Sure, the Saudis got clobbered, but their tanks were rolling over Yemen and putting millions of people in danger of dying of starvation, so the day wasn't a total loss.

Our score:

Soccer 125, Yankees 112.
