FIFA World Cup continues, much to the delight of most of my coworkers. My roommates (both Americans) and I decided to give World Cup another try after suffering through an incredibly boring England vs. Paraguay game the other night. Tonight’s game was Spain vs. Ukraine, which we did our best to watch until we learned that there was Japanese women’s wrestling on another channel. Not just any women’s wrestling: hardcore women’s wrestling!
Finding this new program led us to a choice:
- Continue to watch 22 men mostly standing still pass a ball to each other while the crowd sang football songs
- Watch two terrifying Japanese women stab each other in the head with forks and then beat up the ref who tried to stop them
It was an easy choice. Wrestling > World Cup
