Red and Yellow Cards of the World Cup Week
Just because our eyes are bloodshot from staring at the 15 games we are watching simultaneously today doesn’t mean that we don’t have the vision to see when cheese is rotten. We might still be recovering from that Finland and Kazakhstan tilt, but we do have the strength to hand out this week’s cautions.
Red card to the nation of Paraguay. We thought you loved footy but you still haven’t stepped forward with someone to blog about your team. At this point we might just turn off the lights on the Paraguay blog and replace it with a country that cares about the sport or maybe one about a country that isn’t a county.
Yellow card to talk of Ivory Coast pulling out of the World Cup. We understand the desire for peace and we’d like nothing better than for the nation to be united, but abandoning the World Cup at the eleventh hour doesn’t seem like a move that will advance the cause for peace.
Red card to math. We hate it too and can only hope that we can talk Beckham’s kids into doing out taxes this year.
Yellow card to the computer used by our Ecuador blogger Trent. Dude comes out of nowhere to throw up more than 20 posts in one week about a country we can’t even find on a map. If he keeps at this pace his computer might just catch on fire.
Red card to our Brazil blogger Euler. Not only does he get to support one of the best teams every assembled but he gets to party on the streets with Maradona. No man should be so blessed. Euler doesn’t know this, but next year World Cup Blog will be crashing at his place during Carnival.
Yellow card to any body who doesn’t know about Team Melli now. Our man Afshin is dishing out more dirt on Iran than anyone anywhere. We love his stuff.
