Bitter rivals now just bitter

USA knocked out... that sucks... I guess it's England now. Alright, come on Lads!... oh, umm... How about our Mexican neighbors? hmmm... Ireland? No they're never in it... so that leaves the mighty kingdom of Spain in honor of my Niece and Nephew! I am officially a Spanish supporter for the time being.

At least I can watch the games now with out actually tasting my blood pressure.

The Family That Rocks Together...

Full page and two spots for Under the Radar magazine accompanying an article on Parent/Musicians. You may recall from the post of my dog in a tutu that I was looking for picture reference of my daughter asleep in her stroller. Well, this is what it was for but I abandoned the stroller for the more intimate baby-bjorn. For some reason I went through 3 versions of the main image before getting it right. Sometimes I guess it just takes a few duds to clear the way for something you can be happy with. Thanks to Wendy Redfern, Creative Director (also an amazing photographer) for the sweet job and the room to try some new angles.

Whatta' Guy!

Landon Donavon has officially landed a place in American hearts as "isn't that that soccer guy?" To soccer fans however, he is officially gnarly and quickly becoming Captain America.

But he's just a boy!

The lovable and cuddly Kaka of Brazil pleads innocent (...because he was) but gets sent off anyway after his second yellow card during a crappy finish to a scrappy game against Ivory Coast. What do you expect from a game set up by the announcer asking "You wonder if two of the world's top coffee producing countries are ready to give the viewers a shot of espresso!"

A Lucrative Career in K9 Modeling Ahead?

I was searching for good picture reference of my daughter sleeping in the stroller for a current assignment but found this instead. Halloween 2008, I was rooting for the Pirate but my lowly man-vote was crushed by the girls! This pic was taken after she killed and ate the tiara... whatta maroon!

Worlds worst Ref?... mos' def!

USA versus Slovenia. "We the People" fight back from being 2 goals down at half-time to even the score with fantastic team play and truly beautiful shots. Then, with 3 minutes left... could it be... YES IT COULD! The winning goal! HOORAY! HOORAH! YIPEE! "Not so fast" says ole' poopy pants. "Due to absolutely nothing I hereby decree your goal to be null and void."

And he gave out seven hundred yellow cards... what the eff.

Next up on my little World Cup series is the Gooch. Oguchi Onyewu is my new favorite player on the US team. If you come on our half of the field he will kill you and eat your leg. Hence, monster green.

um... not so awesome

Wow... Poor sausage... England's Robert Green lets one through. A shot that quite probably, my 10 year old nephew could have stopped... Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

I love England dearly after living there for many years and I love seeing all of my favorites play. I'll route for them like my home team when they're not playing the US but c'mon!... talk about sweet redemption. After all the trash talk I endured from friends about the quality of American footie, I mean... really? It's too much.
