Hello World!

Today's Hello World! comes to you thanks to Sven Goran Eriksson and the lousy performance made by the England football team last night.

As I'm sure you all know, England played the Netherlands in a world cup qualifier warm up. Of course, when there are two TrekToday editors involved representing both nations, there is no such thing as a 'friendly.'

*Grits teeth and smiles sweetly*

And what a stunning performance by the Dutch national team it was. Resplendent in their stunning orange shirts, a colour that absolutely does not make anyone wearing it look like a sissy no matter what I may have implied yesterday; the team hammered the opposition who were completely overwhelmed with a scorline of 2-0. Despite having names that no sane person has a hope in hell of pronouncing or spelling correctly, the Dutch players moved with the grace of gazelles and displayed a skill that would be an inspiration to the worlds finest players. Um, which are all in the Dutch team anyway. Of course. And Christian Höhne Sparborth is the nicest, wisest, bestest person on the planet.

Thank you very bloody much David Beckham and co. Harumpf.

For anyone interested in reading a slightly more impartial account of last night's game, head over to BBC Sport.
