Careful, FIFA… Karma is Watching You!

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.

That may sound harsh, but I do have compassion for them.  Continue reading

Dear God, please take lots of people on May 21st so I can have more space on Earth

Dear God,

This Judgment Day on May 21st 2011, please take as many people as You can. I know You have standards where, supposedly, only 3% of the people will make it to Heaven. However, if you wouldn’t mind lowering those standards a bit and take another 10 or 20 percent, that’d be great. The animals and people remaining, along with myself, would love to have a little more space on Earth.
