  1. I can’t believe Cameroon is out. That was a fast exit. I expected that they had a solid opportunity to do well in this years world cup. Maybe it was just bad luck. Maybe its time to jump on the Argentina bandwagon. Looks like Demichelis has already scored. Go Argentina. To make me feel better from that devistating loss by Cameroon, I have been listening to some funny jokes.. This one made me feel a little better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3j7uSbccSc
