FIFA is intent to get Brazil as far as they can in this World Cup because without Brazil, there would be so much revenue potentially lost from a disinterested nation! The officiating in games where Brazil faced any sort of a threat has been horrendous in Brazil’s favour. Where anything has been done to make things a little fairer, like the Columbian penalty given today, it was of no immediate consequence. Brazil had a two goal lead with ten minutes to go. One kick wasn’t going to do much.
But FIFA seemed to have forgotten there is such a thing as karma, and karma sent a little reminder today by removing Neymar from the rest of the World Cup with a broken vertebrae. FIFA is going to have to step up its refereeing favoritism to help Brazil now. Let’s see if FIFA has got that audacity to make the refereeing of Brazil’s games even more blatant, knowing karma will be a little less kind next time as the cheating get more flagrant.
Here’s hoping Neymar recovers well, though. It ain’t his fault Brazil is getting the favoured treatment.
At the Closing Ceremonies, an impromptu adjustment was made so that it started out with a mime fixing the fourth torch that did not come up in the Opening Ceremonies… and Catriona LeMay Doan got to light it!
You gotta love that about us Canadians. We can make fun of ourselves like nobody else. And we believe in second chances. That’s what makes us so lovable! 🙂
At the end of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics opening ceremonies, four torches were supposed to have come up, but the hydraulics broke and only three did. That’s not a metaphor to set up the joke, my friends. The hydraulics really broke!
How embarrassing! The world was watching and we couldn’t get it up!
Where was the Viagra when you need it?
Let the jokes begin!
For the record, Rick Hansen, Catriona LeMay Doan, Steve Nash, Nancy Greene and Wayne Gretzky were the final carriers, in that order. All but Rick Hansen were supposed to have lit a torch. But because one torch did not rise to the occasion, Catriona LeMay Doan was left standing.
She sure looked pretty with the torch in hand, though. 😉
I did not create these emoticon Facebook tagging memes, and I do not know who did to link them to the source. However, I did touch up some of them to optimize them in size for Facebook, and a few I found as graphics searching for pictures that could be used for Facebook tagging.
