You know how people always go on about football. I mean, it is becoming less and less rarer to find a football fan these days. I counted around a 100 Indian users for FIFA 11 on Gameranger on Thursday when the India-Australia match was on.
But the annoying thing with them is how they go on about the beautiful game – about how slick the passing is and how they roar about when Berbatov misses a sitter or when Nani dumps a long one.
Football is all about the skill moves – the deft long ball from Scholesy, the sweet caress of Van der Vaart, the diagonal raker from Stevie G, the sheer power of CR7, the cut inside from Messi, the Rooney through-ball, Zizou’s piroutee and other countless tricks. They stand up from a mundane match and scream aloud – look at me. Look at me.
