The pandemic hits any and most countries not called USA where the population is somewhat immune, probably due to the lack of interest for the cause that they have a different name for anyway. There is no cure for this condition, no drugs or antidote and the only treatment is to allow the malady to run its normal course for approximately one month. This condition is called World Cup Fever and it infects people who fanatically follow the world's most popular sport, football a.k.a soccer.
- a zombie-like state with a single purpose in life
- blurred vision
- hoarse voice
- weight-gain and an increased risk of deep-vein thrombosis (DVT)
- excessive use of profanities that is otherwise uncharacteristic of the victim
- mood swings that are accompanied with tears of joy/disappointment/anger
I do not care for football but the World Cup is after all, the world's largest sporting event. Rivalries can be pretty epic and there couldn't be a more electrifying moment than a frenzied shout of Goooooooooalllll when the team you are betting on nets the ball. Besides, it's great bonding time with the hubs and my boys, even if it means watching the matches on TV during the wee hours of the morning due to the difference in time zones. And if nothing else, some of the players are smokin' hot and worth losing sleep over!
Here's my attempt at cookiefying the world's hottest three. Can you identify them?
Happy Father's Day!
