Funny Story of the Day – Man Living Inside a Gigantic Football

I came across a really funny story today. An Australian man was chosen by Adidas to live inside a giant Jabulani ball for the duration of the 2010 FIFA South Africa World Cup. I think the Jabulani apartment is in Melbourne, Australia. It is fully furnished and has amenities such as laundry, cleaning, flat-screen TV and PS3. He even gets paid for his efforts! I don’t know if he has any sort of privacy as people can peer in the ball through a window but it sounds like quite an experience. Those folks at Adidas are getting lots of publicity for this and I must say, it’s quite hilarious as well.   For the full article and pictures, go here.  E

FIFA World Cup 2010 – Group B – South Korea’s Big Win!

Although I consider myself pretty un-Korean by most standards, when it comes down to it I can’t help but cheer for the motherland’s team (especially since soccer is not one of Canada’s strongest sports…sigh…). The South Korean team won big against the Greek team yesterday taking the game with a score of 2-0. Lee Jung-Soo (Kashima Antlers) and Park Ji-Sung (Manchester United) each scored a goal against the defenseless Greek team. I know people had favoured the Greeks because European football is considered much more skilled and advanced but the South Koreans proved that once again they are a force to be reckoned with. To some of my Greek friends who were sure that their team would win by… 3-0…no less… I have to say…in your dreams dude – take that! (Yes, I’m that immature…) Now… only if the game against Argentina would be so easy… Wish us luck! E
