World Cup SA 2010 Kick-Off!

Though friendly matches have started long ago, hype usually comes later. And by later I mean the finals for 2010's FIFA World Cup which is kicking off tonight!

I don't follow leagues mainly because I couldn't keep up, though at times I do stumble upon the matches when I'm out and I do check them out.

While the rest of the world is rooting for their countries (lucky them) other favourite countries, or to just follow these multi-billionaire players in short pants in action, of course I'm joining in the bandwagon too, not because of the bookie activity but because it's of tradition! Been following WC since 12, so this time would be equally the same.

During the World Cups I have had my crazy moments too;
  • Threw my sister an empty bottle because she teased my favourite team when they lost the QF - at her face!
  • Missed classes just to watch the matches
  • Dakao (gaduh in Chinese) with my classmates because well, when some teams lose some actually get personal. Haha damn funny right.

Thing is, some boys can be so egoistic and irritating at times when girls try to sneak in to the WC conversation. Assuming that we only watch for the boys (partially) but some of us are really fans of these eventful matches and skillful players.

Like me :) I am a fan of Batistuta & Veron (no longer playing), Riquelme (who's not in this time), Gattusso, Cannavaro, Buffon, Puyol, Xavi and Casillas.

Sporadic? Yes. Who will you root for, and why?

I'm rooting for Spain & Argentina!



Love & peace,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.

Sad thing though..., all of the good matches are played at around...2.30 am!!

Hahahaha...well it happens anyway... it's what we like to call the football spirit/fever...

If your team lose again...try something less violent like a punching bag or destressing by playing guitar hero...!! it'll save you a lot of money...heeheheh
