corders in the hague

It's like having the Corders round for dinner - except the kids don't smash stuff and Mike doesn't drink all your booze. And when you're bored you can get rid of us with a mouse click rather than having to start tidying up the house.

Wood you believe it

Maybe they don't have central heating around these parts, maybe it's a product of the same mentality that keeps the streets so clean. Whatever it is, the Austrians seem to lavish huge amounts of care and attention on their woodpiles. Driving between Russia's base in Leogang and Innsbruck, where it played its first match last night (thrashed 4-1 by traditional tournament underachievers Spain), I saw plenty of meticulously stacked logs up against the sides of houses, in barns and surrounding garage doors. It's like a pyromaniac's heaven here. One match and the whole valley would go up.
