Soccer Still Sucks
Anyone who is a regular reader here knows two things: (1) my last few months of blogging has been rather boring (thanks to tee bee for getting anything done here); and (2) I hate the guts and livers of soccer. And unlike Danny Lombard, I have seen soccer and understand it.
Well, the World Cup is over.
Soccer sucks. It leads to famine, disease, gay gangs terrorizing cities (see photo above) and civil war. And we all know that all World Cup games end in 0-0 tie followed by shoot outs. That is, unless a team scores on a penalty kick or corner kick. No one ever scores during normal play. Nope. Peanlty kicks, corner kicks and the inevidible shoot out because no one can score in over time either.
Don't believe me? Watch the championship game when it replayed tonight on your local spanish speaking station. Here is what you will see:
France's only goal, Zidane's penalty kick in the seventh minute, was the lone score by an Italy opponent in seven games.
The Italians put the ball into the net 12 minutes later on Materazzi's header off a corner kick.
Then no one scores again. So Italy wins the game in a shoot out.
