Write the non-future

A few days before the World Cup began, I watched this most interesting video by Nike:

With last night’s elimination of Portugal, all the players featured (Drogba, Cannavaro, Rooney, Ribery, Donovan, Ronaldinho (who didn’t even make it onto the team) and Ronaldo) are no longer on their way to making history. I guess they can console themselves with the oodles of cash they got for the ad. And I can make fun of Nike and gain no benefit whatsoever from doing so 😉
