After following the 2010 World Cup I totally understand the extreme fanatacism of soccer... I mean-"football fans". Years of following an uber corrupt sport will drive you to the edge of insanity, or better yet, transform you into a hooligan.

I'm still reeling as to who's worse-the prima donna floppers or the glaucomicly corrupt refs. I'll hit up wikipedia later to offer an indepth definition of "glaucomicly", but for now it means "blind bookies".

To properly address the extreme idiotic nature of the flops in professional football would take a week and 10 days, followed by 16 consecutive hours of therapy. The way these grown men fall when breathed upon is nothing short of pathetic. In any given match a Tony, Oscar, Golden Globe, or Image Award could easily be rushed to the field, followed by drum rolls and skeleton thin beauties in shiny over priced gowns. I see visions of Whopi Goldberg and Billy Crystal holding hands. *Blank Stare*.

And the refs. Wow. These maggot crooks make Tim Donaghy look like St. Righteous Referee...the III. How else can you explain the amount of blown calls in what has been mistakenly dubbed the "greatest sport event on earth"? It's high time they ditch their penalty cards for bookie sheets and fly paper. It's not like we don't know the deal.

In fact, I vote to change the name of the World Cup entirely. Here's my list:

1.The World Corrupt

2. Foot Gamblers 

3. Field Bet

4. World Wide Wager

5. Fantasy Football

Ok, that last one is taken but still applies. If you're feeling what I'm saying, leave a name or two in the comment box for the "greatest bet on earth" aka The World Cup.
