    Well, This Is Awkward…

    This German fan showed a lot of balls as he zoomed across a river in Holland in front of a ton of Orange supporters.  Fortunately for him there was a body of water separating him from the Dutch fans who probably would have beaten him to a bloody pulp.  On the other hand, those fans […]

    Paul The Octopus Disappoints Germans By Picking Spain

    Meet Paul the Octopus.  This eight-legged creature was once the prized mascot of the German national football team until he picked Spain to prevail in their World Cup semi-final match which takes place today at Durban Stadium. Paul has correctly predicted the outcome of Germany’s five previous World Cup games, but this is one time […]

    2010 World Cup Logo Depicts Man Shooting AK-47…Thanks MTV3

    Whoa — someone at MTV3 is really tired of the 2010 World Cup.  Check out this logo they recently used. But maybe this is just a genius idea to get Americans to like soccer more.  Or to like it at all.  Just add guns.  Because American really like their guns.  And make sure they are […]

    Dutch Player Demy De Zeeuw Kicked In The Face (GIF)

    For anyone who still thinks that soccer players are sissies who fake injuries and are afraid to touch each other: please consider this footage from the first half of the Uruguay-Netherlands semifinal match-up in Cape Town, when Uruguay defender Martin Caceres punted Ned midfielder Demy De Zeeuw directly in the face in mid-air, replacing a […]

    Picture Of The Day: In and Out

    I get the first part, but the second part doesn’t make much sense to me. I bet this chick could help explain it to us. I know soccer players have weird names and their coaches like to pick their noses and eat it, but this is just a little too much here. That Vagenas, probably […]

    Spain’s Sergio Ramos Kicked in the Head

    Spain’s Sergio Ramos was happy to see their World Cup match against Paraguay end. He was happy to see anything after taking a cleat to the head near the end of the game. But it was worth it for Ramos and the Spaniards as they beat Paraguay 1-0, eliminated them from the tournament and now […]

  • Colombian Authorities Find World Cup Made Of Cocaine

    Colombian Authorities Find World Cup Made Of Cocaine

    During this time every four years, it is not unusual to find football-crazy fans around the world creating their own version of the FIFA World Cup trophy.  But while most would opt for materials such as plastic or paper-mâché, in Columbia they prefer the use of a different substance: cocaine. Colombian authorities found a 36-centimeter-high […]

    Picture Of The Day: My Hard Drive Is Going World Cup Crazy!

    The constant buzzing of the vuvuzelas has clearly made its mark on this year’s FIFA World Cup in South Africa.  Not only have they managed to annoy everyone (including dogs and children) and change the way we think of the entire continent of Africa, but now it appears as though these instruments have taken over […]

  • Greatest Own Goal Ever!

    Greatest Own Goal Ever!

    If you want to see good soccer, you watch the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.  If you want a good laugh, you watch this action courtesy of Ireland’s First Division. This match between Waterford United and Mervue United was not exactly a showcase of skill, but I would like to see any of […]

    Picture Of The Day: I hate This Thing

    This is just bad parenting. The vuvuzelas are the bane of the World Cup’s existence and this child clearly wants no part of it. Instead, his parents are forcing this wind pipe down his throat at the youngest of ages, bringing him nearly to tears. This is the type of thing that can scar a […]

    You Little Sh!t! (GIF)

    Reports have been surfacing over the past few days that the problems surrounding England’s national football team existed beyond the pitch and into their dressing room.  Word has it that tensions were high between former team captain John Terry and current captain Steven Gerrard. With Terry losing his captaincy after having an affair with the […]

    Picture Of The Day: The Golden Days Of Diego Maradona

    With Argentina only three victories away from the country’s third World Cup title, the possibility of coach Diego Maradona living up to his promise of streaking through the streets of South Africa naked is becoming more and more likely.  Unfortunately for the many who will be forced against their will to witness such an event, […]

    Ghana Dances Their Way Into Today’s Quarterfinal

    You think Ghana is excited to be the only African team remaining in the 2010 FIFA World Cup? This was the scene at the Black Stars’ hotel last night as they got themselves psyched up for what should be a tough quarterfinal match-up against a strong Uruguayan squad.  Both countries have been rather pleasant surprises […]

    Picture Of The Day: Soccer Not Allowed

    I’ve heard of Americans hating soccer and being totally bored with the World Cup but this is kind of ridiculous. I know most USA soccer fans would love to send an arrow in the direction of this guy, but taking out a whole team is a bit much. Some coaches that pick their nose and […]
