World Cup-ness?!!

Another “filler” update…when can I get my Penang pictures?!! Lols >=P I don’t have a clue as to when I’ll eventually get hold of it from Yau Fee(or others who has the pictures)…because I am always busy at work or while transferring using MSN Messenger,surely somehow or another,Streamyx had to give up on me…lousy…

Anyway,never mind…on with the another nonsensical post…

Why are some of us so hyped up about football when World Cup arrives? Its just about 22 men running around the pitch…knowing that they could just use their hands to get the ball but they choose to use their feet(besides the 2 goalkeepers)…and once they get hold of the ball,they kick it away…lets not forget 2 men are just running at the outer field holding checkered flags(red and yellow) and also one who tries to dodge the ball,likes blowing his favourite whistle and boss-ing the other 22 men around with his infamous 2 coloured cards in his collection(guess he isn’t into Magic or Pokemon cards)…the objective of this so-called game is to kick the ball into the net of the opposing team…and what happens then? Well,the player who did that would then do some weird victory thingy of their own(kinda like a custom to them?),while his team and supporters cheer on him...what sort of weird game is this? The answer to this man-made phenomena is…FOOTBALL…lols =P

Does anyone find it interesting? You only see guys(good thing if you’re a girl or a person who loves to see…errr…guys) and a ball…and also errrr…a big green field,etc…well actually get to see girls too ler…in the crowds of the stadium…if the cameraman decides to show something else…Rather go watch a movie? No need to do so…cuz this game of football has everything jumbled together into one…it has action(where the men would fight with each another over some dispute over a ball)…it has a little bit of violence too(when some player gets injured…blood!!! Definitely not for the faint-hearted)…it has suspense(wondering whether the goal would be scored by a penalty-kick taker)…it has romance(when two or maybe more players…errrr…embrace each other with hugs and other bodily affections)…it has comedy(the way viewers see them fall on each another in a funny manner…slow-motioned)…etc…So much drama going on…even the footballers had to be good actors…in order to do their infamous “purposely drop with style” move…how good he is would be the result of whether did he manage to fool the referee and even the audiences as well =P

(Actually I wanted to browse through the internet to get pictures which depict those “dramatic moments”…but couldn’t…busy ler,haha =P don’t even have time to blog some more…lols,running out of ideas/excuses)

Without further crap-talking about football…lets just see some photos to be included together with this post,eh?

Since I am unable to go to Germany and purchase all the tickets in order to watch the football matches(most of us,haha…except for lucky ones)…our friendly neighbourhood…the TELEVISION(TV) serves its purpose by broadcasting the matches…live…although at very odd hours here in Malaysia…that wasn’t my main concern,it was in fact that I had no ASTRO,only normal TV channels…and only some matches are shown on normal TV stations…if I am lucky,I would be able to watch the delayed telecasts…but that sucks if you already know the results…pointless nonetheless…although normal TV channels broadcasts these certain matches,TV1 and TV2 is crystal clear to my eyes…but NTV7



…I had to stand and hold onto the indoor TV antenna…very lousy reception…my logic behind this,is that the antenna is using my body as an amplifier/signal booster…no,this doesn’t make me any smarter in any way…sort of reminds me on one of the Mr. Bean series(not the animated one) where he had to undress all his clothes and placed them neatly onto a chair of where he sat in order to watch TV…lols =P

And the result…

From the picture seen above,it seems quite blurry…but still visible a bit…must not make any sudden moves too,or else you cant see anything except fuzzy black and white lines/dots…very irritating especially during suspenseful moments near the penalty box area!!! This is a YELLOW CARD situation…lols =P

Now,if I choose to sit down as close as possible to the TV…

Remember…no sudden movements =P

And the result…

As shown in the picture,it isn’t that bad…but in reality,it is!!! You have to be me to find out yourself =P This is definitely RED CARD!!! Haha >=P

So what am I to do? Well,get my wallet and handphone…cuz I am going to…

MAMAK!!!

The picture damn dark and blurry…but you get what I meant anyways…didn’t want to use the flash and I stood far-far away(Zoom kau-kau some more,the maximum),cuz I might be disturbing others who are watching the match on the projector screen…or maybe they might think I am just some weird-jakun(should be ler…haha) who had never stepped foot on a Mamak province before…lols…Feels damn shiok ler,watch there…as though you are in a mini-stadium with the other spectators,the “Oooohhs” and “Aaaawwws” expressed when near goals are missed…and who wouldn’t forget the universal football word…GOAL!!!...being shouted when a goal is scored…


Hehe,savouring the Teh Tarik and Roti Telur during half-time of the football match…priceless…lols =D But hafta go a little bit earlier in order to get good seats ler…damn packed with the crowd as the football match is about to begin…even half of the road is filled with tables and chairs!!! Thank goodness no Majlis Perbandaran officers are around(a.k.a. The Party-Poopers)…I wonder how it’ll be on the Final Round of World Cup? I guess people would have to bring their own straw mats/sleeping bags and placed them on the road…to create more space,haha

Time to end this post,kinda too late to update a post such as this when the World Cup is almost about to come to an end…anyways,Happy World Cup-ing everyone!!! Finals is coming soon…ITALY VS FRANCE…I am gonna go for France,haha…not bad during the Knock Out stages(although they played poorly during the Group matches…from my point of view)…beating the strong teams such as SPAIN,BRAZIL and PORTUGAL…but who knows what is going to happen in the final confrontation…which team would take the World Cup back to their home country in full glory and triumph? Tune in on 9th July(in Malaysia,its 10th July,2 am) to find out!!! GO FRANCE!!! No way I am going to watch the match on NTV7!!! >=P
