Grenade Thrown Onto Football Pitch

I am lost for words (and I don’t just mean I can’t think of a pun).

Sepahan midfielder Adel Kolahkaj picked up a small, black object and tossed it away from the pitch. Turns out that object was some kind of mini grenade or firecracker, which exploded upon landing, causing the referee and his assistant to run for their lives.No one was hurt in the incident, and the game was cancelled initially but players came back on field after security inspection was made.The police officials are still investigating this matter.

Today’s feature is Kronum.  A simple new game from the USA.

The rules are easy, watch:

Now did you get all that?

Well not to worry, just enjoy some of the highlights.  You don’t need to know the rules with commentary this riveting:

I hope he’s stoned, I didn’t think an American could ever sound that boring.

More Kronum action here.

Thor: The oh so mighty

Priest: Another comic conversion (and by that I don’t mean it’s funny)

Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon: It’s like Inception with robots.

Red State: …it’s got John Goodman in it.

Wrecked: Adam Brody continues his surprisingly successful run of hard hero movies.

WAG’s on WAG’s off

Blearily I rubbed my eyes, but the evidence was building up.  The press section could have been mock ups of Guardian articles but where was the sarccy tone.  I gulped as I realised this wasn’t a joke.

Becomeawag.com

This site allows wanting woman to almost audition to become a footballers wife (or girlfriend), for the paltry price of £20!

So what are you lucky ladies waiting for, enter what you’d most desire from your New-naldo and this site will hook you and your fantasy footballer up.  Genius.

World Cup Calculations

An intriguing statistical analysis spanning the history of World cups was brought to my attention today (I have not researched, I’m a busy man, so don’t blame me if it’s another Back to the Future day):

1. Brazil won the World Cup in 1994; before that they also won in 1970.Adding1970 + 1994= 3964

2. Argentina won its last World Cup in 1986; before that they also won in 1978. Adding 1978 + 1986= 3964

3. Germany won its last World Cup in 1990; before that they also won in 1974. Adding 1974 + 1990= 3964

4. Brazil also won the World Cup in 2002; before that they also won in 1962. Adding 1962+ 2002= 3964

5. Therefore if you want to know what nation is going to win the World Cup in 2010, you only have to subtract 2010 from the magic number that we have determined: 3964.3964 minus 2010 = 1954…  In 1954 the World Cup was won by Germany!!!


According to these calculations, we (England) should be winning the world cup in… (just give me a moment to calculate…)

AHA!  1998

…oh  😦

Well, here’s a visual version of this World class coincidence:

Fan-tastic T-shirts

Oooh, that was terrible headline… I like it!

But a bad pun is well worth the height in fashion you are about to see.

Introducing… KNVB Supporter Shirt (I think my title was better)

Case: KNVB Supporter Shirt
Challenge:
Develop a premium for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Solution:
The heads of the players of the Dutch national team are printed on the inside of T-shirts. The shirts are to be worn inside out when the Dutch team scores. This way the audience becomes part of the team.

Thanks to Lol (of Nat and Lol fame) for finding this and Bas and Daan for creating it.

Rooney’s World fu-Cup

Nike has just released this little teaser ad for it’s upcoming ‘Write the Future’ campaign.

One wrong pass and Wayne Rooney could go from a glittering international career to life in a trailer park. Something Wazza must fight to avoid if faced by Franck Ribery in the battle to Write The Future.

You can follow the campaign on their facebook page.
