Football to be kicked around

Yabba dabba doo! We have the World Cup on tele! Time for big celebration. Otherwise Singapore will have go through a month of mourning. The more serious cases will suffer from withdrawal symptoms. That was how dangerously close we got to not having live World Cup football to watch. Kind of scary. Luckily someone has some sense of proportion to understand the severity of the issue and get the deal done. Never mind, football is a game of a ball being kicked around. Never mind how much. No need to know. It is money well spent, every cent of it. We have triumphed in our darkest hour. No one can deprive us of this habit of watching football. With a little money all problems can be solved. Thank you Fifa, for being so kind and generous. Thank you for fixing our craving needs. PS. Maybe someone run through the numbers in the computers and find that paying whatever to make Fifa happy is still cheaper than having Singaporeans going overseas to watch footballs. Singapore, the city that never sleeps, may become a ghost town.

Don't understand what's the fuss all about.

I gave up watching this stupid game when I realized that the whole smutty charade is no different from the shenanigans of the thieves of Wall Street, the Hedge Funds and reckless governments spending more than they have.

At least with Financial Markets you know what you're in for and take the risks but wins big time. Watching a stupid game whose outcome is more or less predetermined is downright stupid to say the least.

Foot is big business oh, so is golf, tennis, basketball and now cricket; You know?

What about stars, celebrities, singers and performers ? Once, such artistes were even rated below farmers in old day China. They were called 'si zi' with very negative connotation of putting up an act that produces nothing useful.

Wait, how the hell did the above mentioned sports and arts become so mercantile. Thanks to the Americans and the Europeans, they got nothing better to do.

AND LOOK CAREFULLY, THOSE SPORTS AND ARTS THAT NON AMERICANS AND EUROPEANS ARE GOOD AT ARE HARDLY COMMERCIALIZED TO THE SAME LEVEL AS THOSE THAT THEY ARE GOOD AT.
Table tennis, sepak takraw(rattan ball game), badminton, hockey, diving and gymnastics are games that Asians are good at.

In any case, anything that produces nothing edible and useable should be considered non-essentials and such trademen should be paid reasonably and not the ridiculous sums they are getting now, it's nonsensical.

Also don't understand why people go gaga over some dull games be it, golf, tennis, basketball whatever.

For me, I prefer Grandmaster Chest Tournaments and Gladiator sports like what the Romans had. OK, Ok, now cannot but I really like watching Muhammad Ali float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. Maybe too much bashing on the head, now he got Parkinsons. Ah well, too bad.

Hehe.

Me used to enjoy looking at some beautiful artistes though i never think their emoluments were ever justified.

Though they are not suffering from any debility, they grow old like me despite botox and surgery. I was also once a loveable and adorable young man, the sad thing is that me did not know how to act, sing or play any instrument.

Patriot,

Hehe, don't worry. You are still "lao Swee".

Everyone grows old but having a young "heart" is what counts.

Giving up watching football is easier than I thought, and I have given up watching for more than a decade. I used to stay up into the late hours and now realised how silly I was.

I too just could not understand all the fuss. The more noise football fans make, the more FIFA is going to think that fans can never do without it, and the more they will charge for it in future.

Watching football can be exciting for the fans. But there is no need to overpay. Too much money huh?
