It’s not just that I was backing Ivory Coast to win the 2008 edition of the African Cup of Nations. No, that’s not it.
Nor even the fact that Ghana, the hosts, have been booted in the semi-finals of their own tourney. By a Cameroon who have won the damn thing every time they’ve beaten the hosts in the semis.
Well, either that or get raped by Egypt like they did in the first game. Anyway.
It’s that both Michael Essien and Didier Drogba will be available to fecking destroy Liverpool on Sunday.
Life kinda sucks sometimes.
