Not suprisingly, got some pretty scathing emails regarding Uruguay´s deliberate hand ball to block a goal at the end of extra time. Truly a disgrace on all accounts. (For what its worth, i thought FIFA rules said you can call an intentional hand ball that blocks a sure-fire goal an actual goal. I skimmed the rule book yesterday, but didn´t have the time or patience).
Definitely my favourite communique, from a normally very (com)passionate, non-sporty person, reminded me why I love sports on the international stage.
And I quote:
"i fucking hate uruguay. i am never ever ever going there, and i hope i never have to do any work that contributes to their development.
Still laughing about this, though actually pissed about how that can't be called differently.
