Seriously, why is everyone so hyped up in a sporting event that does not even entail the whole world to begin with? Let me count 5 good reasons and hopefully make a very careful analysis on each reason.
Reason #2: When a player scores a goal, it is a perfect excuse to go crazy, like taking off your shirt and punch the guy next to you. Perfectly a good excuse to start a brawl too.
Reason#3: People from other nations that do not have a team in World Cup can join too. Philippines for example. We do not have a very effective football theme but somehow, World Cup here has hit fever pitch. And I am pretty much certain the Philippine government has made some plans as to how to incorporate the World Cup spirit to achieve their goals, whatever that means.
Reason #4: We get to see naked women. Seriously, strip bets are around gents. Don’t know which bars though.
Reason #5: We are here to see nations we hate go down in flames! Blast Germany!
