Soccer Madness Hits The World!

Beware everyone! Soccer madness has hit the world...Why you may ask? If you have heard The 2010 FIFA World Cup is on in South Africa for the next few weeks....
So I think there will be many thousands if not millions of people glued to television screens at random odd hours around the world. Supporting and cheering for there countries team, gathering in places where large TV screens are, some I've heard going to movie cinema's to see matches, driving around in cars with their flag proudly... As well as many other patriotic gestures.

Already today when I was driving around the streets of Sydney to meet a friend for a movie I saw socceroo flags, an England flag as well as a couple of others. It's been all over the news and there has been soccer and South African themed programmes for the past couple of weeks in Australia. It's past midnight here and I can hear the neighbours upstairs watching the same match I'm watching. I've just heard a whooppp and a cheer when one of them came close to scoring... The teams playing are Argentina and Nigeria.

For those wanting to see a live 3-d game at the's the link...

Doh!! I've been tring to put another picture on yet the uploader thing doesn't seem to be working at the moment. So tonight you won't have another picture up for you.
So what do you all think of the world cup? I'd like to hear from you and hear your thoughts...
Are you a soccer widow? Or have a son, brother, sister, mother, father or any other family member exposed to what is now commonly called 'football fever'? In the next few blogs I will reveal more of this mysterious yet fascinating issue as I study it more...
Goodnight...or goodmorning to all you reader's! Yet be aware for soccer balls at the moment...


  1. I simply can't understand why people get so involved in watching other people play a game. Sure it's entertainment, but people take it much further than that.
    I just dont get it.

  2. Yes I agree to that. I don't get it when they have fights over football teams. Yet passion is a funny thing I suppose.
