The attention of the entire sporting world is on the 2010 Soccer World Cup in South Africa. Like so many others, I too have been glued to the screen watching every game and making my own predictions on who I think would go back with the prized title. The one thing I find so distracting about the game (apart from the stupid loud horns) is seeing players fall to the ground twisting and turning like beheaded lizards and continue doing that until they get a free kick. Next thing you know, the bastards’ on his feet again skipping back happily to his position.
I mean, come on! okay I do understand that it’s a strategy for getting free kicks but being down for a few seconds warrants it, being down for an entire minute only to get up five seconds after getting the penalty just goes to show that soccer is played by pussies. Rules must be changed so that if a player is down doing his lizard dance on the turf, give him the free kick but send him off the field on a stretcher and never allow that player back on the field for the remaining part of the game. This should teach those ball-less men not to be such a woos.
Being a sports-man/woman is all about competition and challenges. Its about putting your body on the line every time and if you are beaten by your opponent, you get up, pull yourself together and go at it again, only this time you put in that extra effort to be the best. At least that is how real men play.
