World Cup Quarterfinals
My alliances shift, but how can I not pull for England?
For a Catholic interpretation of the above ad, here are the thoughts of Young Fogey, an Englishman in Philly, from his post on the Row over Nike World Cup advert:
    I think it’s a marvellous picture, art that’s too cool and steeped in religious symbolism to sell trainers. It doesn’t belong in church but it’s not offensive in itself. Quite the opposite. Like a hipper version of the end of Braveheart. The primal soul of England: Catholic.
