WORLD CUP JUNE 9, 2010

Aphorism of the Day

"Life is too short to miss any games to be played this summer in South Africa. A sad fact of human existence is that an average life seldom contains more than 20 World Cups—our games are tragically numbered."

From Aleksandar Hemon's preview of the tournament in the current issue of TNR.
