World Cup 2010

Finally, the 2010 World Cup Finals kicks off today! This means more sleepless nights ahead for football fans and it just shows how crazy we all are as we are willing to give up on our sleep just to watch football matches. ;-)

I'm sure the people who are happiest at this time of the year are those selling coffee as most of us will be high on caffeine to get us through the day. Also, not forgetting the mamak stalls with the big screen tvs beckoning us there in the middle of the night...

I can't remember when I actually started watching the World Cup Finals but I do remember waking up in the middle of the night with my sister to watch the matches. The both of us were still studying and I remember the both of us going for the same team, England!

Today, as an adult I'm still an ardent fan of the England team, though there is no more David Beckham. However, we still have talented players like Steven Gerrard, Joe Cole, Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney (to name a few), besides their other teammates in the England team. Too bad we can't see Rio Ferdinand in action this time around.

Of course, there are many other players who I like to watch. Among them are Christiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Fernando Torres, Kaka and others who I will not name here. I'm sure many will agree with me that this is the moment we've all been waiting and looking forward to and there goes my beauty sleep. ;-)
