Air mail? Royal Mail? The heck is this?
A customs form? Football cards? Did Canuck send me some 1990 Pro Set or something? Wait... John Arnold... He's that Pursuit of 80sness guy from England. Hey... wait a minute...
COULD IT BE....
PANINI WORLD CUP STICKERS
I've been hunting down packets of Panini World Cup stickers like Caspar Gutman chasing down the Maltese Falcon and John sees boxes and boxes of 'em at every newsstand. He was kind enough to send 8 packs here to the colonial wilderness. Here's the first one:
I'm officially rooting for England now. Which means I probably put the curse of death on 'em but nothing can be done about that. Panini Stickers + Rik Mayall = I'm a fan of Bloody Ol' England. I haven't gotten any stickers from anyone in Sam's Club so don't give me any mess about how you're gonna get me. Here are the teams I'm rooting for the restof the tourney:
#3 United States of CAN'T FIND ANY FOOTBALL STICKERS ANYWHERE DAMMIT
#4 Germany (One of my great great great great great grandfathers was from there or something so I'm not just jumping on a bandwagon)
#5 Anyone playing France. EFFING HEADBUTTING HANDBALLING FROGGIES
I'm ripping the other seven packs today while I watch Mexico beat the hell out of France this afternoon. If I'm feeling particularly saucy I might do a liveblog/rip.
Also: Now that I have some stickers in my hand I'm finally going to do that trade post tonight.
Also Also: Football shall invade A Pack to Be Named Later.
Gotta go, need to chill the beer and warm up the vuvuzela. Bzzzzzzz.
