Editorial Note - The World Cup
I never did get to all those World Cup posts I promised. So, here's a summary of the subjects I neglected:
- The refs sucked - Yes they did. Missed goals, offsides that weren't there, really bad haircuts.
- FIFA's advertising totalitarianism - If you weren't selling Budweiser (The Official Beer of the FIFA 2010 World Cup!) you might as well be a crack dealer in the eyes of FIFA. One beer company responded by sending scantily clad women into a match. FIFA had the women arrested, though there is a rumor FIFA President Sepp Blatter wants to incorporate their outfits into the uniforms for the Women's World Cup.
- The big stars flopped - Rooney, Ronaldo, Messi didn't score. On the bright side, they all had better months than Mel Gibson and Lindsay Lohan.
