World Cup

Post by Govnor » Sun Jun 11, 2006 11:14 pm

Hows the football world cup for you? Thumbsup or thumbsdown?

I just got back from USA, and I saw no hype about it at all there, its as if they didn't know about it.
I know that football (the type where one uses ones foot to play) isn't a national game over there, but they are in the competition.

Anyway are you mad for it, or is it driving you nuts?
Thumbsup from me :)

I've been too busy to really pay attention to who is in the running this year. :( I do however try and catch some of it on TV for the past few World Cups. I'm a huge soccer/football fan, and I look forward to it.

All in all, I somewhat enjoy soccer, but this year, there was a sour note in the whole deal when it was reported that some 40,000 women would be brought into Germany to be exploited as sex workers.
For those that don't know, prostitution is legal in Germany.
This has caused great distress in many parts of the world causing negetive impact on world cup ratings.

Actually bringing in 40,000 women into Germany to work as prostitutes would not be legal. You have to have a work permit to do so, and a normal visa does not allow this. Prostitution in Germany is handled (almost) like any other job. Prostitutes have to pay taxes, and they receive health care and many other benefits Germany provides as a social state.

Forced prostitution is a problem and illegal.

To not sidetrack the problem further:
There were some very suspenseful games in the last two nights, with Germany - Poland, England - Trinidad & Tobago, and Sweden - Paraguay. I hope this trend continues.
