I was raised on baseball, stickball, basketball and American football so it is difficult for me to watch this thing called, “football” by other inhabitants of this planet. I did try the other day to watch the match between England and the United States but boredom soon enveloped my mind and eyes. They run around, slide, block the other guy from doing anything and everyone goes wild with happiness if, by some strange occurrence, the ball actually enters the other net and is counted as a goal. Just about every game concludes with scores of -1-0 or 0-0 or 2-1. I do enjoy a defensive battle, but every game! I admit they run very fast and are wonderful in use of their legs and shoulders and heads, but score a damn goal! Anyway, after about fifteen minutes I decided it was time to return to the world of excitement and see a baseball game or the Lakers playing the Celtics.
God bless you people of Planet Earth who enjoy watching nothing occur. However, I finally figured out the reason they have a World Cup every four years is to give people time to recover from their boredom.
