I said to myself, “self, no more writing about the World Cup.” Well, I can’t help it. If my favorite Michigan football blog is going to fill up space with ramblings about soccer, than I will too.
If World Cup soccer is such a big freaking deal, why is it that the the most popular subject of conversation seems to be a South African noise-making device? Moreover, why does everybody need to be so insensitive as to complain about a local culture-type thing? I mean, we’re talking about a sport that tolerates regular riots and celebrates 1-1 ties!
Is an annoying horn really going to take away from a game where men routinely line up and cover their marbles with their hands? I doubt it. I say blow your horns South Africa and damn the man.
