I wanted to blog this sooner but I fucked my sleeping pattern so I’ve been tired but YEAAAAAAAHHHH! Spain won the World Cup 2010! It’s still fresh news right?
It’s weird to care about it. I wasn’t into the world cup earlier. The last time when I was really into world cup was in 2002 when Brazil won. I was supporting Brazil all the way, and I had my online friend to talk to about the world cup so it kept me interested..
The only picture of me during FIFA world cup 2002 that I
could find at internet wayback machine. I’m not sure
if I still have my old webcam pictures…
…but 4 years after that, I was in Japanese school, didn’t really care. My Japanese school life was killing me. Now for this year, I didn’t care UNTIL the match between Germany & Argentina. Usually I’d just check out the score the next day. I was shocked that Brazil lost! That day I hung out with my friend, and somehow she texted me about the game after, and I started to watch it.. luckily local tv was showing it live. Then I got more and more interested because I had someone to talk to about it.. and kept my interest going. Unfortunately, the next match on that day between Spain & Paraguay wasn’t shown live here, so I was texting with my friend to keep me updated with the score. At that time, I still didn’t have my internet.
Celcom, my cellphone telco, had this limited edition world cup
bear and it was only RM10! So I went and grabbed my ‘Bearzil’
even though that morning, Brazil lost.
Argentina vs Germany – I was rooting for Argentina! My friend too.. but when Germany kicked their ass like no other, we were shocked, and pissed O_O Then Spain won, so that’s something good. I hated Germany for kicking Argentina’s ass.
Germany vs Spain – This was shocking! Haha and it was so much fun. A lot of people were rooting for Germany, and some were sure Germany would win. Yes, there has been predictions on Spain but come on, Germany kicked Argentina’s ass with 4-0 score.. so it’s not impossible they could kick Spain’s ass…luckily they couldn’t! Haha! I was so happy Spain made it to the final! Nobody cared about the match between Germany & Uruguay… I mean like, whatever right? Don’t really care who won.. but Germany did so whatever lol.
The Final Match: Netherlands vs Spain
Oh God, it was the most intense match I have ever seen! The match was aired at 2.30 am Malaysia time, so I was screaming and shouting in the middle of the night… it was nerve-wrecking when no team has scored and they had to add extra time! And it was even shocking how the Dutch played the game! They played it dirty.. they played it rough.. they lost their integrity. Seems like they don’t want to be respected for playing good, but just want the damn cup. The most shocking part was the super kung fu/karate/ninja kick to Alfonso’s chest by De Jong!
That was just super brutal, dude! The worst tackle ever. Poor Alfonso. If it was a kick to the knee or ankle, that’s normal.. but the CHEST?! He’s lucky that he’s still breathing. He might be suffering a broken rib though. What pisses everyone off is that, the stupid fucking referee only gave De Jong a YELLOW CARD? That should have been a damn RED CARD! Shame on you, De Jong. This match was also the only match that I’ve seen with so many yellow cards given! 14 yellow cards! And 1 red card. It was so annoying that every few minutes, there’d be something happening… either Holland played rough or Spain made a bad tackle.
“Haiyaaaah!!! Feel my super kick of furrrryyyy Alfonso-san!!!“
PAUL THE PSYCHIC OCTOPUS
Haha I’m sure you’ve heard of him… the psychic German octopus!
Even though I’m not supposed to believe all this psychic mambo jumbo.. but I can’t help but be amazed that out of 8 matches (7 involving Germany, and one for the final), he got all 8 predictions right! He even predicted that Spain would win the cup, but after almost 2 1/2 hours of no goal, I was starting to doubt Paul until few minutes before extra time ends, and Iniesta scored a goal! I was like omg Paul was right hahaha. If I had bet a lot of money on Spain, I’d be rich by now! So to honor Paul and his super psychic power & prediction /sarcasm, I promised not to eat octopus for a month haha.
Now I know why people with heart attack are not recommended to watch world cup … at least not alone. I nearly got a heart attack every time they tried to score a goal but the ball ended up outside..so close, soooo damn close.
Well world cup is over, I need to get back my normal sleeping pattern. Let’s see if I can still gain interest in the next FIFA WC in 2014.. it’s gonna be held in Brazil so I hope Brazil will win!
Pregnant? Get your prenatal vitamins.
Yeehaw. Who here are interested in Rodeos?
Rodeo is an interesting sport. Since I’m in Malaysia we don’t get to see those right in front of our eyes, but then again I don’t get to see my favorite sport baseball either except for in ESPN. Rodeo is such an amusing yet very interesting and exciting game. It’s fun to see the cowboys/cowgirls riding the animals. I was just talking to Aaron about it, and he reminded me that there was a scene in the movie Borat. Now I remembered it and it was hilarious lol. I have seen in other movies too, and news.. I can’t remember if I’ve seen it in sports channel though because it’s been ages since I last saw any sports channels.
I’m sure if you are in the states, you know about the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo which is the premier championship rodeo event. It is one of the events that I’d love to go if I’m given the chance. Since I’ve never seen this type of sport up-close, it’ll be really fun and exciting. It’s better than watching football, where people just kick the ball and bore you for hours if there’s nothing exciting happen (no goal, no penalties, no red card, no injury etc).
If I could go to Las Vegas in December, I’d get my hands on some National Rodeo Finals tickets then enjoy gambling my money away, if I had any lol. Hey who knows, I could go home a millionaire or something Malaysia needs to be exposed to more sports like baseball or rodeos or something interesting. I’m sure there are some Malaysians who are interested in challenging fun game as riding animal that’s going apeshit lol.
