Colombian Washing Machine Repair Man

The 2002 World Cup was in Japan and South Korea. Living in the US meant most of the games were on at breakfast time.

England vs Argentina - the rematch. A chance for redemption. A few days before the game our washing machine went on the fritz. On the morning of the game, the guy from Sears showed up. A Colombian, he let me know just how much he hated Argentina. We watched the game together. Me in my pyjamas, him in his Sears repairman outfit. All very strange.

England won 1-0. Beckham penalty. Owen dived.

Later Brazil beat England, because of this.

Seaman you oaf.
