Football Ladies - World Cup South Africa 2010
World Cup South Africa – Here I come…
Well, with my remote control and Television. Thank goodness for Technology, most of us are enjoying it from the comfort of our homes or a big screen somewhere else or at work on the Internet. (Ha!) You know who you are.
Now, we ladies don’t know much about football. (or should I speak for myself). There’s a few things I have observed in South Africa World Cup 2010, that I’m actually seeing for the first time even though I do watch football some times.
1) I’ve noticed, players push each other when tackling and when the person they have pushed falls, they put their hands up, as if to say “it wasn’t me” or “ I didn’t touch him” (Example, the gesture below). Why do they put their hands up?
2) There is a constant noise in the South Africa Stadium – it sounds like a continuous swarm of bees. My friends say it’s the South African Horn. I don’t know how players manage to concentrate through that noise.
3) It’s interesting to see the way the Managers have all learnt “sign language” to communicate to their team while they are playing live. They are so intense with it, sometimes I can’t help but laugh.
4) Just noticed there are actually 2 referees in all games. Were there two in the games for the last World cup or have I suddenly got improved vision in my eyes?
5) When the players come out they all hold a child (O.K, I this I see in every game) but I think - what if in one game, a child let go of the Footballers hand and had a little run round the stadium for a good 5, 10 mins and it delayed the match a bit.
The South African Horn
Finally, I like the look of the World cup Footballs. I have been wondering if anything special is done with them after each Game. Do they throw them away or use them again? If you know what is done with World cup footballs, please let me know in the comments box. I’m just curious.
I hope you all continue to enjoy the Football World Cup season and may the Best Team win.
