Yup, that's pretty much how I feel.

I have little interest in sport. Most of the time that's fine. This week, I can't even go to my favourite coffee shop without feeling like I'm at the stadium (TV turned up very loud)



Tell me that no one brought vuvuzelas to the coffee shop...


Those things are banned in most public places, most shopping centres and most shops.

+1. A lot of people sure do like it, though. I played soccer when I was 10 (before soccer was fashionable in the US), but I don't understand the mania that goes along with it nowadays.

Me neither.
Rugby players have a couple of amusing takes on football, such as the difference between the two sports- one's a played by men pretending to be hurt, the other's played by men pretending not to be. Football players are known as "Prancing lawn fairies". There's more but this is a family show.

I'm pretty sure I lost a second interview slot for saying something very similar to that on my way out of the first interview.

The company sponsored the nearest Premiership team!

Learnt to very important lessons there.
The interview isn't over until you really have left the building / said goodbye to the person showing you the way out
Remember what other ventures the company is involved with - like sponsorship

Rodders...

haha that's awesome. I don't understand why so many soccer players have to roll around on the ground like they just broke their leg in half only to jump up 10 seconds later. I would love to hear more of these. Feel free to send me an IM and any colorful language is not going to offend me.

Well, because they are a bunch of crying girlies (bunch of Prada-manbag wearing models).

The incentive is clear enough: try to get a free kick or penalty or try to get the other player a red/yellow card. And because the FIFA is still living in mediavel times and doesn't allow technological assistence like in any other sport, it is pretty easy to foul the referee.

LOL. At least this time around they are working a few technological advances (like goal line technology). And the aerosol can has been working very well the last few years in MLS. I would like to see the 4th official be allowed to review tape during the game so things like the Costa headbutt can be dealt with.
