What is this "world cup" of which you speak?

Does it contain alcohol?  If so, where is my cup?

It is something like the MLB World Series but in this case other world countries actually do participate  :2funny:.

It is not so boring when your country is in it (but I can't seem to find the US or Canada on the list of participators)  ;D.

Watching a soccer game is like watching the grass grow, but with a soccer game in the way.

Watching a soccer game is like watching the grass grow, but with a soccer game in the way.

You should try cricket :

The oldest and longest format is called “Test Cricket”- This is the original form of cricket invented by the British. It is played over 5 days, minimum 90 overs to be played in each day. ( An “over” is a span of 6 balls continuously bowled by 1 particular bowler. After bowling an over, he is replaced by another bowler to bowl another “over”). Minimum 6 hours of play is scheduled for each day. Each team gets to bat twice in a span of 5 days. each slot is called an “inning”.

The shorter version of cricket is called “One Day” match: Invented in 1970’s, each match consists of 50 overs being played by each side and the team scoring more runs in their quota of 50 overs wins. A team is normally given 3 hrs 30 mins of time to bowl its quota of 50 overs plus there is a break of 40–45 mins between the two innings so the game lasts for ~ 8 hours.

This one in our local newspaper made me smile :
