Football 2010–ye-ah!

ESPN, as a prelude to World Cup 2010, published a list of what they felt were the top 50 football players in the world.  Spain had nine players on the list, the most of any country.  That seems to explain why Spain is the favorite at my sports bookie.  England is the second favorite against the odds.

Messi, Ronaldo, and Rooney head the list.  Drogba, a veritable old man compared to the younger players, is ranked sixth.  I like watching Drogba best though.  If you are a goalkeeper, it must feel like a freight train is headed toward you when he has the ball unimpeded.

I’m not going to fill out my World Cup bracket sheet until right before the games, for there is still plenty of good football left to be played in Europe.  I think Barca or ManU have the best chance at this stage of winning the Champions League.
