Blog visitor quarter finals

For my own super-slow-mo amusement, I am going to set up a kind of world-cup of blog visitors. On 31 March I will award victories in the quarter finals to the countries with the most visitors on the flag counter thingy. This is feeble and pathetic but there you go.

South Africa v France
Thailand v Romania
Turkey v Switzerland
Phillipines v New Zealand

After that we will have the semis. Obviously Thailand and New Zealand are top seeds and look likely to meet in the grand final, but you never know. The dark horse is Romania, who have lately come from nowhere to, er, somewhere.

I am a little disappointed you didn't do a US vs AU world cup. I know it's not much of a fight, but we're a scrappy bunch of underdogs and I think you should have at least given us a chance to humiliate ourselves.

I like to think we're kind of on the same team. Hands-across-the-sea style. US and AU are in 3 figures, and we should take a kind of mentoring role with the likes of Luxembourg - Come on little fella - go for 2! You can do it! - kinda thing.

The only endeavour where I think you could say the US is "a scrappy bunch of underdogs" is probably cricket.

I guess I was having a bad self-esteem day. GO LUXEMBOURG! :)
