3) Would you want to tackle a lion?
For all those of you who’ve found yourselves watching ‘funny cat’ videos on Youtube all day (let’s not pretend like you haven’t) here’s one that should be a popular choice. Although disappointing that the actual result remains unclear (no one likes a draw) these animals look damn good at playing the beautiful game. In fact some even show better ball control than Emile Heskey.
2) Let’s call it a dress rehearsal?
The World Cup stage has been ready for quite some time, or so FIFA have claimed. Stadium hitches resolved, security issue fears ironed out and a tournament to be played in the spirit of the game. Imagine the press release FIFA must be forming now then, after the first game at South Africa’s new Soccer City saw a complete power failure which ended television viewing of the entire second half, only to then discover opponents Colombia had been robbed blind from their 5 star hotel after a match that was decided by three penalties. Genius.
1) This week’s winner was found by our very own Becky Taylor. OK, it’s very simple humour but sums up just about everything you need to know about the World Cup with one ‘breathtaking’ manoeuvre. As Harry Redknapp might say ‘the boys done good there.’
