So, in this World Cup the majority of the teams I like have been eliminated. The last one of mine left is the Netherlands--GO ORANGE!! My support of the African teams was riding on the shoulders of Ghana last night. In the closing minutes of the game Ghana kicked a ball that was headed straight into the goal, and would have gone in when a Uruguayan player used both hands to block the shot!! If you don't know football too well, using your hands is a foul and can bring about a "red card" charge, which gets you kicked out of the game and makes you miss the following game. Most hand ball fouls are incidental yet are still called as fouls because using the hands goes against the whole point of the game. But when a non-goalie player purposefully uses both hands to block a ball that otherwise would have gone in then that is blatant cheating. The hands behind the football in the picture above are the hands of the player who used his hands to stop the ball. See video of the hand ball incident below:
"The 'Hand of God' now belongs to me. Mine is the real 'Hand Of God'. I made the best save of the tournament. Sometimes in training I play as a goalkeeper so it was worth it," said Suarez.TPJ: Hand of God?? Since when is the Judeo-Christian "God" that people believe in, a cheater? And how blasphemous is it to say that your hands were the "REAL" "Hand of God?" Never mind Jesus' hands that supposedly cured the sick and resurrected the dead. No, it's not those hands that are the "Hands of God." It's the hands of the arrogant, cheating, world-class asshat, footballer David Suarez??? He is without integrity in my eyes and if you don't care about your integrity then I think that tells a lot about what kind of a person you are. That's not the kind of person I'd trust or care to spend time with, so I'm glad that he will miss the semi-final game. He should be ashamed of himself, and in my mind is a little man who deserves little respect. I spit on his football shoes LOL.
