World Cup / Prairie Home Companion

This week's prairie home was great; I listened to it twice. Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder were crazy. Some dead, some dylan. And in the ketchup bit there were some funny bits about the world cup:

TR: I didn’t know you cared for soccer, Barb.

SS: Well I don’t. But I’m just excited that everybody else is excited, you know? And I just think it’s fair. After all these years, Europe has never won a World Series or a Super Bowl. Neither has Asia or Africa. So I think we should watch other countries win, even if it is intensely boring.

TR: I can’t stand soccer.

SS: Look, Jim---- the fans ---- they’re all excited and blowing on their little vuvuzelas.

TR: What a horrible sound.

TR: It’s like goats being castrated.

SS: The players don’t seem to mind it-----

TR: They hate it. They just don’t say anything.

SS: That seems odd, doesn’t it?

TR: Not when you’ve been married for 45 years.
