It is no secret I love Japan and now I have yet another reason. When Japanese soccer fans rocked up to watch their team play Colombia in the World Cup they all carried something with them. Garbage bags. Yes, the Japanese fans stayed behind after their win to clean up the stadium. In Brazil, four years ago, they also did the same even when they lost. RESPECT.

Just a little parting gesture …
Sheez, when the South Korean football team returned home from the World Cup, having only scored a single friggin point, they were greeted by angry fans who pelted them with …wait for it … candies . OK, in some countries that would be considered awesome, right Wombies? Anywho, it seems in South Korea “go eat a toffee” is the ultimate insult and basically equivalent to “screw you”.
Oh no, the Qatar’s World Cup stadium, which was suppose to resemble the sails of a dhow boat, has been nicknamed the “vagina stadium” because, well, it doesn’t quite look like sails. Most commentators believe that now it’s been dubbed “the vagina stadium” there really is no turning back. Hmm, maybe the architects should compare notes with the architects of the “Penis church”?
Julie from the Madhatters posted this little New Zealand Rugby World Cup ditty on Facebook. For those of you who are rugby challenged, Webb Ellis is the name of the World Cup trophy and those silly little Kiwis haven’t laid a hand on it for a very long time. Hmmm, might need to change a few lyrics ….like “for 28 years”
