The FIFA World Cup is in full swing and despite the newly acquired Astro channels at home now, with their televising of all the games, I haven't been taken of all by the hype and excitement of the beautiful game thus far. A few have asked me earlier as to which team I would like to see win the Cup and my answer was "whomever that wins the final, lah!"
The so-called 'beautiful game' has become, for me, quite a plain and tasteless affair. There is more talk concerning the game engineered by what money can produced, rather than the pure human spirit and skills which drives the passion towards greater heights. Of course, not all teams can boast such technology and skills which money can provide, so it is really the underdogs that I really look out for. Since, they do not have that edge over the superior teams, if such an underdog do win the Cup, that would certainly be the beautiful game!
