It all comes down to this. Later this afternoon, Sweden and Portugal will square off in the second leg of their World Cup qualifying playoff with a trip to next year's World Cup at stake. And it seems as though the Swedish people are pulling out all the stops in order to try and help their team win.
Early this morning, a Swedish radio station pulled a pretty amazing prank on Cristiano Ronaldo & Co. They called it "Operation Wakey Wakey" and it consisted of a radio DJ from Swedish radio station RIX FM standing outside of the Portugal team's hotel at 7:15 a.m. with a bunch of karaoke equipment and making a shitload of noise. And from the looks of things, he was successful in causing a disturbance, at least for a little while.
Our only question: Why did the DJ wait until 7:15 a.m. to do this? Why not start at, say, 4 or 5 a.m. and really cause a ruckus? Oh well. At the very least, he did his part to help Sweden earn a W today. Now all he can do is sit back and wait for the match to start. If Portugal comes out sluggish, you'll know why.
