Everyone has their own way of celebrating or dealing with the inconveniences of the World Cup. Take this trio of pregnant women, who painted footballs on their bellies. One of them said it was love at first sight when she saw her future husband, running like a “crazy horse” down the field and, with a deft motion of his feet, kicking the ball straight into the goal. Sounds kinda kinky too — but everyone knows, after all, that “sex ‘n’ footbawwwlll” go together well. Recently, one woman has been trying various football related means to capture the heart of a football fanatical man she’s been secretly jonesing for. This meant decorating her apartment with various football related paraphernalia, but also by … making football underwear? This is the phrase in Chinese: 动手DIY足球内衣. The report doesn’t say much about it, leaving it to one’s imagination (and perhaps for the better). Please, let us know what you think this might mean, as long as your mind isn’t in the gutter. More deeply and irrevocably entrenched in the gutter than ours, that is.
Of course, not everyone’s thrilled about the World Cup fervor. The article above states that certain establishments (not sure where) will cater to the needs of “football widows” by not placing TVs or playing broadcasts relating to the World Cup in their stores, or else giving these women shopping specials and discounts to help them through this difficult time in their lives.
