There are many ways to spread knowledge.

I just happen to favour the self deprecation route.

Though this time Spain were the first team to be confirmed out, has that happened before? Obviously other holders have went out at the group stage...

On a related note, has a Catholic ever been Pope?

France got eliminated that tournament without scoring a goal, which as holders, may be a record in itself.

It was indeed.

You'd imagine Spain will beat Australia to avoid that fate, but if the Aussies play like they did against Holland...

I can understand why you'd think that, but no, I didn't.

I'd only had 3 pints of Stella.
