Red Devils

IMG_6288

World Cup 2014. Belgium is known for a lot of things like chocolate, waffles and of course Mr. Bowie, but not traditionally a strong national football team. At this summer’s World Cup in Brazil, however, the Belgians are likely to be an underdog that will surprise and shock with their progress. As any Premier League fan will already know, the secret to Belgium’s recent success is an overwhelming array of talent across the pitch. Belgium currently have an ideal blend of youth and experience in their squad, and manager Marc Wilmots provides stability.
Traditionally the squad of Belgium plays at home entirely in colours of the Belgian tricolore, with predominantly red. This explains the very commonly used nickname Red Devils.

Mr. Bowie is totally ready for the start of the 2014 World Cup.

  1. Mr. Bowie, you look absolutely dashing. With you cheering them on, we bet the Red Devils do great! XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  2. I do hope Belgium provides a good surprise. I will drink Belgian beer in support while I watch. I like that Mr. Bowies\’s regalia matches his eyes, he’s so stylish.

  3. Love the photo of Mr Bowie geared up for the games. I don’t follow futbol at all. Although, I do have a nephew who is all soccer all the time, and an exceptional player as well.

  4. OK, Mr. Bowie, we will be totally rooting for the Red Devils. Plus Ivory Coast and Cameroon (if these guys are playing). Incidentally, I just noticed that there’s “underdog,” but no “undercat.” Obviously, because we cats rule the world. So we can only have an “uppercat.” Like an “uppercut,” only nonviolent. This may be the subject of our next post. Let me check with the human. She will do my bidding. –Bugs

  5. Just looking forward to seeing some soccer on TV here in the Midwest in the USA. It is the only time I get to see a fair amount of great soccer! Will cheer Belguim on with you Mr. Bowie!

  6. The pitch, devils, waffles, secrets ? Sounds like a nice brunch at Stephen Kings house. I don’t know anything about football but you look positively dreamy today Mr Bowie xox B
