i feel obliged to write some thing about world cup, well, i went to see argentina-germany match with a couple of students. i had only watched two games previously and i thought quarter-finals should be a logical place to start following the games ...
did NOT work out for me. to be fair, i felt a little bit of excitement, from the old days, but not much.
i find the whole "watching sport" thing more like a social convention, food for chatting in social occasions, something that strengthen your boubds with certain groups in society, something to be identified with ... but at the same time, a very stupid concept!
why don't people actually engage in activities instead of watching others? i find this question VERY IMPORTANT!
