Thoughts on World Cup

Maybe I’m just impatient or have some form of A.D.D., but I think most of the World Cup matches I’ve seen so far were really boring. I guess I just don’t understand why people get so excited over not seeing many goals. They need to open up the size of the goal a bit so that people score more. I guess being there in Germany around all the festivities would be more exciting. We went to a game in Romania while I was there earlier this year and it was kind of fun seeing all the crazy fans and everything going on around the game, but the game itself was kind of boring. Oh well…I know there are alot of people who hate watching NASCAR and think that it’s mind numbingly boring…I happen to love watching it.


  1. I can see that. As someone who watches both, I can tell you that neither is really that interesting right away, but the more you watch them, the more you appreciate both. To me, the 0-0 draw over the weekend between Sweden and Trinidad was the most exciting game of the tournament so far, but to most it was deathly boring. Then again, I’ve gotten sucked into watching NASCAR all the time now too, since my roommate and girlfriend watch it, and it’s the same kinda deal.

    Speaking of, have you heard that one of NASCAR’s own partners is suing it? Apparently some group couldn’t get it’s track into the circuit, so they’re trying to buy their way in forcibly. Pretty sad state of affairs if you ask me, and I can only imagine what it would mean for NASCAR if they won.
