That’s really all I have to say about the closing minutes of the Brazil – Ivory Coast Game.
It was absurd.
The commentators regretfully informed the world that such behavior is the downfall of their sport. Tsk tsk.
Add to that the scandalous behavior of the French team at practice, and it was quite the drama day.
And events/causes of scandal aside, don’t you think that as a supposedly elite side who has performed miserably, nigh on embarrassingly, that instead of boycotting practice maybe you ought to—oh I don’t know—do some teamwork drills or something? I mean—obviously—aside from agreeing as a team to march off the field and refuse to return whilst under the lens of the media.
I mean, I hate to say this, but (and especially since they are playing South Africa next) I might have to pull my support from Les Bleus (anyways, I have another blue—technically azure—team that I back above all anyways, and then of course there is Team USA… lots of blue here).
Soon I will have to relive my aneurysm regarding the Azzurri. Returning to my dark place to write that post will be interesting.
