the saddest story ever told

for some reason, tsn elected to tape delay the england/switzerland soccer game today 3 hours, and chose instead to show some of round 1 of the us open. the plan was to ditch work and head to the grad club to watch the game at 3. unfortunately, andrea’s msn name was, at one point, “england 1-0 at halftime” or something like that – which is unfortunate but acceptable. and as i was on my way out the door, a co-worker (who i’d mentioned this to previously) said “hey rob, england won 3-0!” i asked him why he told me that when he knew i was gonna watch it. he didn’t have a good answer. clearly, this is the saddest story ever told.

    richard hatch’s victory was pretty much impossible to avoid, no matter how hard you tried.

    you forgot the part where i said, “don’t tell me ’cause i didn’t hear you.” and then he said as we were leaving, “but i thought it was good news.” ruiners be damned!

    maybe he assumed you were cheering for the swiss? or do swiss fans cheer at all? perhaps they prefer to remain neutral.

    in summary, ruiners suck.
