Thankfully, No “Selfies” This Time.
After the end of a wonderful Football World Cup, I hope my Argentinian readers will not be too crushed. There are far worse things in life, though I know there are moments in which not many of them really come to mind. But they are there, and this was a great achievement anyway.
I congratulate my German readers for a fully deserved triumph. I can’t stand Merkel so I will not watch the ceremony.
I am glad we will have no selfies of Francis with the flag, or with a Messi photograph; and no Pollyannas telling us the Holy Ghost obviously loves this oh so great Pope so much he had to give the cup to them. This, at least, will remain spared to us.
Tomorrow it will be normality again.
Again, my congratulations to the winners.
