More thoughts on the World Cup:
- ABC/ESPN couldn't provide any bad coverage of the matches. They don't provide any pre or post match analysis. They start the broadcast right at the kick-off time and there are no repeats. The two good things have been their live broadcast of all games and the HD simulcast of all games in ABCHD/ESPNHD.
- What's up with refereeing in this World Cup? The group matches were all officiated horribly, apparently based on the new FIFA rules. The quarters and semis have been better.
- And, for all those wondering why India is ranked 117th in FIFA World Rankings, here's the answer.
Italy won, but this world cup final would be known as the one where Zizou headbutted that Italian player (Materazzi) and cost the match for France. Like everybody else, I too am left wondering, why?
