Germany got off on the right foot in the World Cup yesterday, crushing Australia by a score of 4-0. Yikes!
Germany scored two goals in each half and Tim Cahill was sent off as the three-time champion beat Australia 4-0 Sunday in Group D of the World Cup.
Lukas Podolski and Miroslav Klose scored in the first 30 minutes as Australia coach Pim Verbeek’s defensive tactics backfired, and Thomas Mueller and Cacau added the others against an overwhelmed Australian defense.
“We earned respect for ourselves,” Klose said. “It was hugely important to win the first game, but nothing is won yet. We’re a young team and we have fun playing.”
And they did that without injured captain Michael Ballack. For those not in the know, the Captain’s wife is from Germany, so the Cup is a big event in their household. - Wyatt Earp

Um, she knows wrestling is as fake as her breasts, right?
Brooke Hogan says she has been approached a number of times by Vince McMahon to follow in her dad’s footsteps and join the WWE.
The singer and reality TV star is the daughter of wrestling legend and 12-time world heavyweight champion Hulk Hogan.
And, in an exclusive interview with SunSport, Brooke revealed: “The WWE have told me that if I ever want to become a wrestler all I need to do is walk through the door and they’ll give me a job straight away.
“They are always like, ‘Hey Brooke when are you gonna put on some spandex and get in the ring?’
Her reasons against are typical of this airhead’s thinking:
“But it’s just not my interest. I’m more of a girly girl.” (H/T – The Sun)
This is where I would write, “I’ll bet your parents are really proud,” but considering how frakked up her parents are, I’ll hold my tongue.

Okay, everyone out there who reads this blog gets an “F.” NO ONE called me out for not posting the Eagles Cheerleaders this weekend. In case you missed it, the Eagles HUMILIATED the stinking NY Giants thanks to Plaxico Burress’ prowess with a gun! What exactly is a “Plaxico,” anyway? I digress.
Ritt finally called me on it, so I guess SOMEONE cares. Usually Wyatt would have NEVER let something like that slip, but now he’s got so many rug rats running around that these things are bound to happen. So good call, Ritt. Are you just keeping me honest or do you have a thing for cheerleaders?

It’s a formality at this point, but here are the Eagles Cheerleaders. Last night’s Thanksgiving game was just proof the the NFC West is a fraud. The Cardinals were supposed to be good. What does it say when they come east and get sha-lacked by the woeful Eagles - who just a few days before had benched their starting QB? The Eagles also hadn’t scored an offensive touchdown in 19 quarters prior to gametime. Brian Westbrook looked like a hall of famer, scoring four touchdowns. Yet with second and about forty, Andy Reid opts for a running play from deep in the backfield. Ugh! So, it was a win, but at this stage of the game I doubt it means much for the Eagles future.

There are days like this that remind those of us still living in this city just exactly why we hang in here. This weekend the Flyers beat the Jersey Devils twice snapping their losing streak. The Phillies beat Tampa Bay twice in the World Series. The Eagles beat the Atlanta Falcons 27-14 and the WHO played at the Wachovia Center. No city in America can lay claim to a weekend like that. It is simply one of the best weekends we have had in years and one for the history books.
How crazy is it that they were chanting for the PHILLIES at the EAGLES game?
Now that’s cool. Since the Eagles won, once again I’m posting their Cheerleaders. Why risk a jinx?

Even though the score would have you believe that this was a commanding victory, don’t be fooled. The Defense came through to save the day for the Birds after the offense sputtered a number of times. But a win is a win, so today I’m posting the Eagles Cheerleaders.

Ok folks, to the winners go the spoils! IGGLES Cheerleaders to celebrate a brutal win. How does a team that manages to put up 38 points against the Cowgirls last week manage only 15 against Pittsburgh? (2 from a safety.) I’ll tell you. It’s Philly. We play down to whomever happens to be on the schedule in any given week. But a win is a win.

Ok, so I’m not one of those rabid sports fans. My problem is that I like too many different sports to be that nuts over any one. But that doesn’t mean I don’t get amped up over my teams – especially football. Since I’m a home team guy, the Eagles and Flyers are at the top of my list. The Phillies are a distant third because I can’t stand their management. They’ll never win until they get ONE owner like a Gerry Jones or George Steinbrenner.
So today was the Eagles home opener and they absolutely decimated the St. Louis Rams, 38-3. Ouch! It’s not going to be pretty tomorrow in St. Louis. So anyway, in honor of their decisive victory, I’m posting the Eagles Cheerleaders team picture. If the Birds lose this year, I’ll post their opposing team’s Cheerleaders. Anyway you look at it, it will still be a win for First In!
