Hint: It's not an obscenity. It's an anatomical term. Or so I strongly suspect. And thus should be emotionally neutral, except so often they aren't. At least for people who don't read medical textbooks for a living. :P

We do allow anatomical terms here, but we do also like to maintain a degree of tastefulness. It's a fine line. For me the main point is, does everybody get it without it having to be actually said?

If so, it's fine.

If not, PM me. :twisted:

The German team must be very disappointed because they don't want a celebration when they return home, no matter if they become third or fourth. Is it only the victory which counts?

This young team did a very good job and it's only fair that the best team wins. Btw, my patriotism is very limited and my world isn't upside down because of yesterday's match. :)


Well, as Schweinsteiger said: it would be the third time in a row to come home from a big tournament as third (or second) and be celebrated with empty hands - so I guess, they found it odd. Who knows.

Anyway, I thought the game for third place was better than the final. And if we played against Spain the way the Netherlands did, with so many fouls, we might have won, but I wouldn't have liked it.

So let's see how they do next time, the qualification round for the European Cup starts soon. :D

I wonder if Paul will then still be there - how old can an octopus get?

The World Cup may be over, but soccer fever burns on.

I would SO want to watch that more than the normal game.
