World Cup Wackiness

Here is more proof that people take this way too seriously.

“TWO lifers have sewn up their mouths in protest at not being allowed to watch the World Cup.

But the jailbirds in Pazardzhik nick, Bulgaria, left a corner open so they could still have a fag.

The cons had demanded a TV in their cells and unlimited supplies of tea, coffee and cigarettes.”

And

“Soccer fans in southwestern Bangladesh attacked an electricity office after multiple power failures interrupted coverage of two World Cup soccer matches.

Protesters wielding bamboo sticks attacked the Rural Electrification Board office in the Gopalganj district and hurled stones after the power was cut off during the match between Argentina and Serbia-Montenegro on Friday night, a police official said Saturday on condition of anonymity, in line with standard policy.”

And

Hundreds of Dutch fans had to watch their team’s 2-1 win over the Ivory Coast in their underwear in Stuttgart on Friday after stewards at entry points to the stadium rumbled an ambush marketing ploy.

The Netherlands supporters all turned up in garish orange lederhosen displaying the name of Dutch brewery Bavaria and were ordered to remove them by stewards before being allowed to enter the Gottlieb-Daimler-Stadion.

They then went into the match and watched it in their underwear.”

    Bangladesh? Don’t people have anything to do? How come I’m so busy?
