As if Paul’s pick was not demotivating enough for the Argentine players, now Maradona has threatened to run naked on the streets of Buenos Aires if Argentina wins the World Cup! On the other hand, think of the morale of the Paraguyan players – Larissa Riquelme will run naked if Paraguay wins the World Cup. Rumor is, even Maradona now cheers for Paraguay. The whole wide world (www) is looking forward to Paraguay’s victory in the final. To start with, the Spaniards may not even show up for their quarter final match against Paraguay.
The French players had to go home early. They care for their children. Ireland had threatened to send a team of their best Catholic priests to France after Irish defeat in the pre-WorldCup Ireland-France game.
Sepp Blatter is set to be the next Pope. He has all the qualities to be one – he doesn’t care for logic, he is a technophobe, and he has, almost certainly, stopped using condoms.
A kid from India: “Mom banned watching soccer so I watch Discovery Channel all the time. It’s amazing to see how all the plants, animals, terrorists and shooting stars are always conspiring against the USA and how those major catastrophes are always averted in the very last minute (Discovery Channel actually shows a ticking clock each time they say, “the clock is ticking!”) by some well-bearded scientists from the Glacier State University, Bozeman, Montana. Who wants to watch soccer leaving such entertainment?”
Jimmy Kimmel, in a television show, said that if he ever finds where the country Mali is, he will confront the referee, Koman Coulibaly, who disallowed one valid USA goal against Slovenia. Whoever Jimmy Kimel is one thing is clear that it is extremely hard for him to find Mali because that is outside his world. He had the WORLD CHAMPIONS Lakers as guests, and Mali certainly is not part of the HUGE world that Lakers have conquered!
Honor(!) killing is as popular in Haryana as soccer is in Brazil. But one recent incident went a bit too far and became a lot more grusome. When two from the Kushwaha family were killed by the members of the Marwaha family, the Kushwaha family retaliated by buying every kid of the Marwaha family a vuvuzela each!
It’s a well-known fact that the promising Formula-1 drivers in India are facing a lot of resistance from the pedestrians and pavement-dwellers (fortunately, not from the police, though). But it is surprising that the six ABVP activists who practised soccer with passion (some put it as, “kicked Prof Sabharwal to death“) could not take India to the finals of the World Cup! May be those guys should have practised more – on Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
