As we get closer to gametime tonight, please take every action, every inaction, every decision into careful consideration. Whatever you do or do not do may have a drastic effect on the outcome of tonight's match. If you have lucky shirts, pants, socks, cumberbunds, put them on. If you have certain rituals that need observing, please ensure that you do observe them so. The fate of our Champions League campaign depends on it, and I'd hate to not pull off the comeback just because you were too lazy circle your couch three times anti-clockwise fifteen seconds before kickoff.
I will be sitting at my desk, FS1 streaming on the left monitor, DESAILLY 6 custom 08-09 home shirt - having not seen any action since the Europa League final - at the ready. I've done my part, have you done yours?

Somebody linked this in yesterday's DH. Big fan of Stromae ever since last week's Sky montage. Best World Cup-related song since Herbert Grönemeyer and Germany '06.
