World Cup Results: Third Place Thankfuls

Well done, Germany! Sure, third place isn’t the same as booking a place in the World Cup Final, but in the wise words of every annoying self-help book we’ve ever used as a coaster, it’s all about feeling thankful for what was achieved and appreciating all the thanking thankfulness that comes with the T’s and the Y’s. Or something.

So here’s what we’re immensely grateful for:

- A sweaty Arne Friedrich and his bottom curvature formation is always worth spending your last tenner at Paperchase for a few heart-shaped stickers to go in your “gratitude” journal.

- Bastian Schweinsteiger. He is made up of several parts we greatly appreciate.

- A mighty enjoyable third place game with good goals and good footy.

- Getting to see one of our favourite new discoveries again: Uruguay’s Diego Perez, aka baby Vidic. We feel the shine his hot robot is putting down.

- Miroslav Klose’s hugging techniques. He’s a full-body presser.

And, since we’ve not started our intravenous anti-hangover chocolate IV drip and are thus a tad on the cranky side, here’s what we’re not so thankful for:

- Cold temperatures resulting in a shameful lack of base layers from the players we have come to rely on most for post-game man flesh. (Looking at you Mario Gomez and Diego Forlan.)

    This team is so damn fine as a whole and I’m so proud of them for how well they’ve done!
    They’re good looking, played extremely impressive, AND they’re so classy and respectful, what every footballer should be like.:)

    I am convinced that Schweinsteiger is allergic to shirts. The second the ref blows his whistle, win or lose, that jersey is coming off. I don’t know if he gives it to someone else or just flings it heavenward, but that man’s nipples cannot be contained.

    And for this we say, Danke, Bastian.

      Well if that is his allergy I hope there isn't a cure, because boy can keep his shirt off ALL DAY LONG :D

      fine piece of real estate right there :)
