Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll. I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley

Curse of Nike!

Watch Nike's 'Write the Future' commercial that was released before the World Cup. Hard to pick who among the ones showcased was the biggest flop. Was it Wayne 'no-goals' Rooney, or 'Il Capitano' Cannavaro and his whimpering Italians. Or maybe Ribery of the Les Miserables, or Ronaldo 'the sulk'. Of course, Ronaldinho and Theo Walcott didn't even make it to the Finals.

Amazing coincidences, don't you think?
