The World Cup in England

Hey lads. I am home in England and am loving the World Cup here - flags everywhere, and I mean everywhere, never seen England quite like it. England shirts on loads of people, flags, media coverage - commentators that dont drive me mad. Its such an improvement. Now here is something interesting - Budweiser are sponsors of the World Cup and have paid for a lot of adverts here on one TV Station. Before each half you see a clip of 2 American commentators and they do and say stupid things - its hilarious and very mocking of Americans - in fact if I were American I would be offended. The one I saw tonight had the other asking what a nutmeg is and the other didnt know, then he asks "whats a shimmy?" and the other replies "No idea there either". Another commercial showed them asleep in the commentating booth and another had them yelling about a one timer. Amazed budweiser put these ads together - fantastic stuff though.
