WCP#7: Rob Green & Your Player of the Day

The first order of business involves the fact that you'll notice "World Cup Post" has been shortened to "WCP." Not since Regis changed "Is that your final answer?" to "Final?" has the English language experienced such an important abbreviation.

In the Nigeria match yesterday, Vincent Enyeama played a fantastic game in goal. If not for Heinze's sweet diving header, he'd have kept a clean sheet against Messi & Company. He was an early leader in the run-up to the Player of the Day selection, but then the USA v England game happened. Both keepers in that match made me happy, but only one could be you Visions of Ypsi Player of the Day. I considered naming Rob Green because of his ridiculous gift for the US, but as an impartial observer, I need to remain impartial. I did, however, become a a fan of his on Facebook, & you should too... the comments are pretty hilarious. After you do that, you can read what the British papers are saying about him:
* Daily Mail
* The Guardian
* The Times
* Telegraph
* Manchester evening News
* The Daily Record (Scotland)
* Irish Times

And now, w/o further ado, your Visions of Ypsi Player of the Day, sporting a bulging vein on the side of his head to rival Simon Bar Sinister, Tim Howard.
Grade A badass!

That was quite a cock up by Green. Whatever that means.

It got my cock up when I realized the US wasn't going to lose.
