World Cup - Day 1

Tina here. Chris was/is still frolicking in Spain.
Greetings, Happy World Cup to you!
That is THE news, isn't it?
A bit about yesterday's Box. Sire decided to "channel" a spirit and allow this entity to take over the microphone for the show. We were warned that it could be the mayor, a the Devil, a fireman, anybody. Turns out that Pimp Daddy stepped in and he decided to play some Curtis Mayfield, Jeff Buckley, Todd Rundgren, Prince and some disco from "The Great Rock and Roll Swindle among other things.
The best part of the show was when Mr. Shovel pulled off a great bit of comedy without saying a word. He confounded the host by pulling his smooth theme out from under him and switching around different songs that in turns reflected and poked at what he was saying at the time. It was masterful.
