Thoughts about Sport

My favourite thing about this photo is not the fact that it represents that the best team won the World Cup. And it’s not Sergio Ramos indulging in the world’s happiest stretch. Or Juan Mata celebrating in the David May tradition of bit part player in position of unnecessary prominence. It’s not even Gerard Pique’s magnificent gnashers.

It’s Sepp Blatter and Jacob Zuma sidling away giggling like a couple of schoolboys who’ve just replaced the real World Cup with one of those trick ones that explode in your face. You can get them in most good joke shops.
