World Cup

Postby Masayuki » Mon Jun 19, 2006 12:24 am

Hi.

The World Cup game 2006 is now on in Germany. Almost all Japanese people crazy about it. Many Japanese people go to Germany without ticket, actually.

How about your country?

Yes Tora but people around us keep talking and talking about it; sometimes TV programs are rescheduled because of the games... It's all too much :lol: LOL

(I don't mind because I seldom watch TV :D)

Hardi and Dixie, don't you like watching World Cup? Suprising really! Here in Vietnam, everyone seems to live in World Cup. We have been having a great time. Just one thing, lose much sleep as Germany has different time zone with us.

Never liked that game. Maybe 3 times have played in sporting class on groundschooltime -stupid teacher panned.. I really disliked it... I'm too individualistic for that game. can't play with team.. I believe, most estonians have that fault. Everyone is for own.. I forgot for witch team I play. :lol:

Fortunately I don't have lot of friends around of me, who annoy me with footpall, but there is nothing to watch on tv. and that's catastrophe.

Sorry of Japanese, who must wake something about 4:00 morning to watch it.. One of my Japanese friend was worried already about weeks before. If she can wake for those games or not. Weird... I was sure, that only men are crazy about footpall.

Maybe if Estonian team was qualified, to worldcup, I would little interested too.. but to stay awake to see it?! My sleep is more worth than a game.
