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.

It's because you can't run? :lol: You just don't know how cute those guys look in shorts. Look at them hunky, chunky thighs! :lol: :lol:
Oh please........ those Soccer guys are pansies compared to Rugby players or Aussie Rules Football Players. And you haven't seen the short shorts they wear either!

I can guess some words, but sometimes they're not that obvious. I have to ask Chris (he's my dictionary when I'm too lazy to check it online) to know the meaning in that case.

Actually, Japanese people are so crazy about that. They gather at cafe, bar, stadium and other places when the game is going on. Yesterday (the day before yesterday?), they gathered those place, even if the game start at 4 o'clock in the morning, at Japan time.

But you know theb result...

I haven't watched spanish channels though yesterday while france was playing against Togo russian sport reporter was sitting next to (I bet) his spanish collegues! When Henry stroke second goal our reporter kept silent while somewhere from the background spanish ones were yelling gooooooooooooal for 15 seconds I guess! They are times more active during the match! :o

Yeah, it's amazing how they can talk through the whole match. It's 90 minutes of reporting right there. And they yell repeated words for about 30 seconds or something. I like their enthusiasm.
