There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

Well, England won.
Not now.
To those from across various waters, England won a football game against Switzerland 3-0.

The amount of children running around shouting "England!" and cars tooting as they pass this shop is phenomenal. It scares me, to be frank. You don't see this very often, and it is this that makes this experience rather scary to me.

I mean, it's only Switzerland in a group game, a game we were expected to win comfortably. I don't know, maybe I'm just not cut out to support football teams any more because I can't recall ever getting so excited that I'd chant the team's name out and honk a car horn every 200 metres over a rather academic result.

Still, at least it means there are no riots around here, for now.

Oh, I enjoy watching the football, I just seem to have little interest in which sides play, and often view games as a neutral, though the sensationalist English media makes it annoying to watch anything, because England will always be referenced every few minutes. It's just this over-the-top national pride that surfaces only during a football tournament that irks me. I didn't even see this stuff during the World Cup in Korea and Japan.
