The Global Game

Monday, July 12, 2010

What a game this morning! Granted there were a lot of yellow cards, but well done Spain in becoming World Champions for at least the next four years.

Amongst the on-field spectacle, South Africa 2010 has shown that football deserves its title as the global game. The World Cup brings people together from all over the world and this was a truly international event.

As you know New Zealand Post delivers all over the world and I wonder what items might be in the mail following the recent World Cup action.

I’m sure there’ll be a few Vuvuzelas flying around after their rise to international fame during the tournament. There’s also the inevitable letters of congratulations (and commiserations). You may like to congratulate the All White’s on their stellar group stage run, or console the English team after their early exit.

I’d personally like to send this week’s Lotto ticket to Paul the Octopus. The guy has an unbelievable record when it comes to picking winners and he even picked Spain for the final.

Thanks for all your comments on how to stay awake during the games. Hopefully, you can all now get some sleep. Although I’ve just been told it’s only six weeks until the English Premier League starts again.
