Continuing with the countdown after yesterday's first take:
40 “You da man!” No, me be a man. You be a dink. "In the hole!" a close runner-up here.
|Nebiolo, Blatter: Race you to the caviar table.|
38 Streaking. Never was much as a fad - it's soooo 1974 - but streaking as ambush marketing takes it to whole new depths.
37 Judges handing out marks for “artistic impression”. Although the Kiss 'n Cry pen isn't bad compensation.
36 The postgame, on-field prayer circle. Fellas, God doesn’t care about your games.
35 National anthems. We get to listen to two of them a night here. Lucky us.
34 Soccer’s offside rule. What exactly is it? Today, I mean.
33 “I’m going to Disneyland”. Marketing trumps spontaneity. Again.
32 European poo-bahs. Sepp Blatter ought to have his very own list, shouldn’t he?
31 On-field celebrations. Touchdowns, goals, etc. are okay. But a sack dance? Grabbing your crotch after a basket? Signalling "first down"?
(Tomorrow: Nos. 30-21)
