How is your World Cup Fever folks? Getting better? Mine is still a little sizzling hot and I can't shake it off. Hmm....I can't help but feel that the opening matches of this world cup is a little bit of a disappointment. So far...not much ignition, sparks and let alone horrendous fire to be seen. Hmm...maybe it is just the openers. Fret not, we still have a long way to go. Not everyone is a football fan right? Some of you will even get sick at the sight of football. But for those select few (a~hem! like me) World Cup is a blissful moment and...
...you would probably experience the...
World Cup Syndrome!!!
What happened to me?
Once World Cup Syndrome gripped you, your biological clock will turn upside down. Since most of the football matches will be aired after midnight (Malaysia time)...you will be transformed from being a normal diurnal human into a football-watching nocturnal night owl. Ha :D Due to lack of sleep, you wake up the next day feeling like a brainless zombie...you put on your working attire and dragged your both feet to work. You reached the office and everyone is staring at you. You are fashionably late and unkempt...
"Good morning everyone *yawn*!"
Then they say during the World Cup, you will ONLY "sleep football, eat football and drink football" aka World Cup Syndrome. Hmm...how true is that? Well, if you are still grabbing the Astro remote control while you are asleep, then you know you have got the syndrome. Your bedroom gotta have one of those World Cup posters. You replace your bolster with a football instead. All you can think about even in your dream is World Cup!
Do you "sleep" football?
If you are grasped by the World Cup Syndrome, everything that you eat and drink will be "football"! You will use your football as your "makeshift table" while munching your football-like chipsmore cookies. Yum! Yum! Then when it comes to drinking, you will only quench your thirst with a cup that has something to do with World Cup just like the McD's World Cup contour glass. Then only you will feel replenished!
Do you "drink and eat" football too?
Must use MacDonald's World Cup Contour Glass!
Me and my chipsmore.
Of course the World Cup Syndrome is not only restricted to eating, sleeping and drinking activities. Once clutched by it, you will be passing your motion with football too. Ha :D Yep! Answering nature's loud call will not be complete without a hint of World Cup. A World Cup magazine should be read while you are sitting in the "Staring Room". You see, football fans are efficient multitasker too. We don't waste our time at all during this World Cup! LOL :D
What are you looking at?
Ardent football fans like us would bask in glory if we can predict the outcome of a football match, more so if it is for our favourite teams. Prediction is not only about luck you know. In order to churn out the best "divination", we will scrutinize the two competing teams. We will compile the complete analytics of the respective teams, their injury list, their tactics, their coaches, their zodiacs et. cetera! You see, it is not easy right? Now where's my scientific calculator?
Hmm...who will prevail?
After toiling and struggling the whole day...night is the moment all of us (footies) have been waiting for. It is the time to watch all those live football matches. Woot! You flip the channels and voila...OIC...how come there is nothing? OMG! I don't have Astro Sports Channel. How about you? You can't watch those exclusive LIVE football matches unless you have subscribed to the sport channels. Nooooooooooo! I don't want to go out to the mamak to watch football with all those cigarette smokes hanging around my face. So what can I do?
Huh? I didn't have Sport channel?
Then only I remembered that I can surf the internet to get all the live updates and gamecast of the matches. So I am not missing any action at all. With a little tweaks and tricks here and there, I can even watch all the exclusive live matches right from my laptop. A~ha! That's the wonder of having wireless broadband at my disposal. I can surf (and be served) with live World Cup football updates anytime and anywhere that I want to. Woohoo! Are you harnessing your broadband power too?
Now I am in control. Muahaha :D

*yawn* I am feeling sleepy right now. I am a nocturnal beast for this one whole month, remember? So I gotta stop here or else I will go haywire and start writing more nonsense. Goodness! Another long winding post about World Cup from me aye. I am sure those who are not football fan (such as Suituapui) will feel ultra bored and write me this "ZZZZzzzz" comment again. You cannot put the blame on me folks. It is not my fault. It is because of the World Cup Syndrome. Are you suffering from it too? :p
World Cup Syndrome-It is all about the football!
