I don’t know about you, but I am desperately hungry for the World Cup fever. It bums me like hell that our cable provider does not have a single channel that covers it – all 42 channels and nothing!
In the local evening news, it is like the biggest sports spectacle in the world is not happening right at this moment – not even a trace! Good thing the web provides me the necessary fix, this way I could always cheer for Argentina.
It gives me an odd feeling, that this country is disconnected from the entire world! I wonder why RP does not invest in football? To be honest, I think Filipinos can do good in this sport, so why not give it a try?
For the meantime, while RP’s actions, or lack thereof, towards the World Cup continue to haunt me, I’d be bidding my time rooting for Lionel Messi. I even got the Havaianas World Cup edition of his jersey! Too bad the country is isolated from the fever pitch excitement of the games, especially now that defending champion Italy has been ousted. Most I know are behind Spain or Brazil, one even said if Spain loses he would jump off a bridge, LOL!
