The opposite of hate World Cup special
Okay, so it's an unlikely title for a blog from a confirmed football hater - but seriously, for some reason or other the 2010 World Cup has reached a Lassoo milestone.
Yes dear readers, for the first time in the cup's 828 (or something) year history I don't give a shit about the world cup.
I don't find myself being annoyed at all the twatty plastic St George's flags everywhere - even the ones that see fit to write ENGLAND across them, as if you didn't know what they actually stood for in the first place. Nor am I irritated by the tens of thousands of companies who think it's brilliant to use the World Cup to hock their shitty products 24 hours a day. I care not for the casual sexism of ejected blondes in orange or the casual xenophobia of pundits only giving a shit about a national team who really aren't going to win - because you have to score goals to win.
I can safely say that the World Cup has barely affected my life, and as a result I feel a vague warmth toward the competition and its followers.
So in celebration of me not being pissed off by football, here it is folks - the Opposite of hate World Cup Special.
Extra points to anyone who gets the film that the last one is quoted - who isn't related to me. xxxxx
