World Cup 2010

Saturday, June 12, 2010

The opening of the FIFA World Cup 2010 was last night, or this morning, whichever way you look at it. In NZ time it started around 1am. Was really really excited about it, and we went over to our friends' house with the best TV to watch it all together...

Should have taken a nap, because I was already quite tired by then. But I'd been so hard at study that day! (Actually, just LONG hours of sitting down, just a book gone over.) The opening wasn't as grand as I'd expected, especially since it was in daytime their time, so no fireworks or anything spectacular like that. The first game followed the opening straight away, with the host country South Africa versus Mexico. What a disappointment. The first half was such a bore, that we decided we'd just go home to sleep. Sorry J, who wanted to stay but left with us, because he didn't want to be the only one left lol.

But we have our own TV at home, so we continued watching (at least for a while, for me, anyway). South Africa scored one goal first, then later Mexico. So, the overall outcome was 1:1. Which is not that exciting, considering how Mexico should have been in theory better than South Africa, even if they are playing on their home turf. Mexico did have better possession ratio and better passing skills, though.

The second game, which we didn't watch, because we don't have SKY, was between Uruguay and France. Not too sad that we missed it though, since the score was 0:0, though don't know how the game was.

Went to sleep at around 4am. I don't think I'll go to the gym today. Or uni. Will study at home. The first South Korean game is on tonight, at 11.30pm, against Greece. However, I will give that a miss, too, because I need to get to work by 9 am tomorrow, and don't want to be falling asleep at work!
