World Cup

  1. Yes, please do ban the fricking vuvuzelas. I had to twiddle with the sound system in my TV for half an hour to figure out a way to create a custom audio profile that reduces the impact of their blaring.

  2. I've realized something which has been gnawing at me for quite a while: 90% of football -- 90% of all matches, as well as 90% of any match -- basically sucks. Unless it's your team playing, watching the ball being swatted about as if it's a pinball machine, with nary a goal-mouth action for practically the whole match brings no joy. Stuff like this and this make more and more sense.

  3. Some advice to footballers: if you're already on a yellow card, depending on the referee's interpretation of the rules to avoid a second yellow and get off with just a foul is plain dumb, so spare us the indignant looks and hangdog expressions when you're given marching orders. Oh, and stop being such pansies.

  4. Maybe it's just me, but the African teams' corner flag celebrations after scoring goals are starting to look cliched and lame. Roger Milla you guys aren't.
