    four lil letters F I F A

    fifa - Google Search

    but what about those who don't care?
    Well I hope to place via this thread
    the irreverant side of the frenzy that is WC.

    Firstly-What will you say on judgement day?

    The anti-World Cup ad

    Heineken

    Latinos from the Caribbean are baseball -- not soccer -- fans, and women usually don't remain glued to the game like the men do.
    In the spot, a Puerto Rican asks his game-watching friends from soccer countries -- Colombia, Argentina, Mexico --what the score is. They point out that Puerto Rico doesn't have a soccer team. He grabs a six-pack of Heineken and is welcomed by women hanging out in the backyard.

    Never thought I would say this;but the Guardian has taken the right approach

    Pils, thrills and skills

    If there's one thing Germans do better than efficiency and attracting lazy national stereotypes, it's beer.

    'F-word' banned in World Cup-free hotel

    'F-word' banned in World Cup-free hotel

    A British hotel is offering football-free breaks for "soccer widows" desperate to escape wall-to-wall coverage of the World Cup.
    Any guest who overhears a member of staff mentioning the f-word ("football") will be given a free glass of champagne.
    "The bookings are starting to stream in," said Mike Bevans, manager of the Linthwaite House Hotel in the picturesque Lakes District, one of Britain's prime tourist destinations.
    The sport supplements are being taken out of daily newspapers and, instead of blanket TV coverage of the big games, guests will be offered a string of romantic movies on DVD such as Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman

    from AD&C

    do not know about you but I am watching my World Cup matches at the house of my friend who lives on the 21st floor and who has a TV set custom built for him jointly by Sony, Akai and Videocon.
    The evening begins with cocktails, depending on which team is playing we have drinks of that country. The day a South American team is playing, my friend serves tequila, on other days, we have champagne, Italian wines, English beer, Jamaican rum, Yugoslavian raki, and the day Scotland play, scotch. It is a pity Russia has not qualified.
    For food, during half time, we fly in one of my friend's super-jets to the capital of a participating country, have the food in time for the second half. For instance, when England was playing my friend was planning to fly us to London to eat at the Chor Bizarre. But at the last minute it was decided we would fly to the Chor Bizarre in Delhi and eat there. The food is the same, and instead of NRI Punjabis, you meet RI Punjabis.
    Coming to the game, my friend's TV screen is as large as a football field. Occasionally, when the ball is kicked out of the ground, it drops on the carpet in front of the TV. The butlet picks it up and throws it back into the screen.
    The sound is quite good. My friend has installed speakers in the walls around, which provides what is known as a surround sound. There is a button on the remote, pressing which we
    can hear either the crowds roaring or the commentators speaking. Another button on the remote brings Anupam Ghulati and Dr. Narottam Puri on the screen with their comments. This is possible even in the middle of the game.
    And it is very useful, because without their comments it is difficult to follow some of the games.
    At the end of the game, my friend flies over Pele, who comes to the house and explains the finer points of the game that has just ended. Naturally, Pele can stay for only a few minutes. My friend has promised that the next time Argentina plays, he will have Maradonna sitting on the sofa with us.
    No, it is not possible for us to step into the TV screen and wander around the field. Fotball laws strictly prohibit this. But at the end of the finals, the laws will be relaxed, and we will be able to wander in and join the celebrations.
    Cricket will be starting, in England next week. My friend's TV can offer similar services for cricket also. He asked me this morning: "When cricket starts, would you like to watch cricket or football?"
    "Cricket," I said.

    football poetry

    Get Me A Flight Out OF Here, I'm Worried! Hello is that the travel agent? I'm calling by phone
    To see if you can you get me a flight home
    Yeah as soon as you can, like.... right away?

    There seems no point in me staying here
    Or I'll just end up crying in me beer
    "Whats that? Why did I phone to get an early flight
    Home from the World Cup"?
    Well I've just seen the Argentina team play

    Diego Armando was stood in the grandstand
    Adorned in a blue and white striped shirt
    Cheering for the team that he's graced since his teens
    Face ravaged by past pain and it's hurt

    It was wonderful to see him looking so good
    Raising his voice to spur on the boys
    The stadium in Gelsenkirchen was full to the brim
    Awash with excitement and noise

    An astonishing array of attacking play
    Free flowing movement and class
    Even allowing for Kezman's dismissal
    It was sheer artistry out there on that grass

    Twenty four passes ended up with a goal
    Set up by a cute Crespo back heel
    Anyone who saw this must have been just blown away
    By the technique and magnificent skill

    Two youngsters were sent on to give it a go
    Lionel Messi and Carlos Tevez
    Is there some sort of production line out there in the Argentine
    That keep's churning out class players like these?

    Tevez reminds me of the maestro Maradona when young
    Built like a bull and such hips!
    Cloggers may try to damage his ankle's and thighs
    Me? I wouldn't bother or try
    T'would seem that they're made out of brick!

    Messi's just nineteen years old
    God what a talent he is
    He has confidence, stature, skill to cause rapture
    No wonder he's idolized by Spain's kids

    What can you say of Riquelme?
    His penetrating runs, his deep probing style
    As he feeds the front line all in his own sweet time
    When he's not scoring goals with such guile

    Anyway after this fine feast of fantastic football
    I'd advise everyone else to give up
    So get me a flight out of here by tonight
    As I've just witnessed that fine team from the Argentine
    Who could probably win the 2006 FIFA World Cup?
