The FIFA World Cup Craze!

Unless you live on Uranus, you know that the FIFA World Cup 2010 is gonna kick off tomorrow!

I donno about other people but the Lebanese are ultimate fanatics when it comes to the world cup games which happen every 4 years. The games mean so much to Lebanese people and it’s as if the world cup is happening here in Beirut and not in Johannesburg.

You can’t walk on the street without seeing cars and buildings with flags on them. [My personal favorites are those cars which carry FOUR flags, prolly a flag for each member of the family 😛 ]

Some people are making a fuss about this whole phenomenon but instead of obsessing about political & economical struggles, it’s nice to see people obsessing about something healthy for a change.

I wish Lebanese people continue to fight over the world cup and hold as many freakin’ flags as they want, as long as they never hold a gun ever again.

Final thought: VIVA ITALIA!

The different ways of showing ur a fan!

    I would say pretty much everybody is crazy about soccer (American word for football) in America, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East. The trend is taking forever to take deep roots in North America but it’s coming. The US is trying hard to leave its mark on the ground this year so hopefully people from this part of the world will want to join the fun!

    I don’t know if it’s always healthy to be obsessed about football because a lot of people take it way too seriously, but it’s better than politics for sure!
