I keep getting Internazionale confused with Internacional. Why isn't an MLS team named International?

United v Chelsea; possibly the FIFA Club World Cup, gotta ask Mrs. grubbsbl if it's okay.

Oh, and Milan v Roma. Mrs grubbsbl also isn't a fan of serie a.

I-270, International de Baltimore? I like it.

Hah! With CP-Baltimore and Real Maryland, International de Baltimore would make MD the most Eurosnobbish state, giving us something to hold of NY.

How many of use are not rooting for Mazembe?

Wow, title-holders Atletico crash out in the snow and Adu's team (hehe) advances. Boo.

Juve out, too.

Tonight I'll be watching the NCAA women's volleyball semis on BSPN2. People who tune in may encounter a familiar name, albeit attached to an unfamiliar body:

It looks as if your fingres [sic] still have a hold over you.

Apropos of our discussion of football films several days ago, has anyone ever seen Mike Bassett: England Manager? I don't recall it ever being distributed in this country, although it may have popped up at film festivals and such:

The reason I bring this up is a story from the rugby world that I first heard on the CBC program As it Happens last night on WAMU:

I am not rooting for Mazembe. Sort of.

I love the Club World Cup. So much so that I flew to Japan to see the final in 2006. (Oh, and visit my brother, who lives there. And see Japan. But the game drove my timing.) I look forward to the day when the final will be aired live on FSC, not tape-delayed in favor of a Premiership match. But we're not there yet, and a Mazembe match would be a step backward. Yes, backward.

Europeans and Eurosnobs think Europe is All That. And they're right. That's why only South America was invited to play them for the de facto world championship for decades. That's why Europe and South America still are seeded to the semifinals instead of some kind of group structure.

I was so happy when they finally created a structure that, in theory, allows any club in the world to win the world championship. Yet I knew it had to stay in the exclusive club for a while. If some outsider won, Eurosnobs would just dismiss it as a game the European team didn't take seriously.

Mazembe, Tout Puissant Mazembe, are the first rock to break that glass ceiling keeping the Rest of the World out of the title game. But I believe it'd be too soon; the establishment fans need to get used to the upsets at the semifinal level before they'll be ready for an upset that would give the title to a team from a place like Lubumbashi.

It's sort of like how an oppressed majority can only be given rights at a pace that doesn't freak the priveleged minority out. It's not right, but it's politic.

So my heart is pulling for Mazembe, the team that's representing Africa, Asia, North America and Oceania. But my head wants to see Inter struggle a little, but win.
