Olympic Excitement

If you love the four times table, the Olympic Games (not the cold one) is the sporting occasion for you.*

I was interested in the fact that the Olympic rings are meant to represent all the colours on any flag of the world.

For example that great Olympic country Russia has a flag that is red white and blue, represented by the red ring, the blue ring and the white background. Here highlighted in pharmeceuticals and faecal brown…

The FIFA “family”

It seems as if I will not be flying emirates, drinking coca cola, buying addidas products, Macdonalds nor EA games…

Congratualtions to the hotbeds of football Haiti, Congo, Benin, Cyprus and Fiji for rushing to Sepp Blatter’s support today. After all the FIFA family is a very delicate and precious flower and we would hate football to ruin it all for them…

So that hotbed of football cyprus
Backs Blatter and asks what’s the fuss?
Whats a bribe here or there
Why should we care
As long as a few quid can be thrown at us
~
Grondona* asked for Falklands for his vote
Which as far as bribes go is one of note
Maybe give us back football
Then give us a call
Your association with FIFA is no reason to gloat
~
So well done Fiji, Haiti, Congo, Benin
For propping up a footballs version of Lenin
So while the FIFA’s inbred family
Back pat, and backhand happily
The true football family must consign them to the bin

Another example of what a quality human being and fantastic FIFA family member Julio Grondona is can be found from the following quote…

‘I do not believe a Jew can ever be a referee at that level (Argentine Premier League) because it’s hard work and, you know, Jews don’t like hard work.’

FIFA senior vice-president and chair of Finance Committee, Julio Grondona, 5 July 2003. Buenos Aires
