Report 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa in Random Thoughts Posted June 16, 2010 I TAKE UMBRAGE AT THIS and am forwarding you my to-do list plus a three page essay on why people on twitter are in fact busier than people on message boards, the gist of which is: it takes less time to put together 140 characters than a forum post or blog entry or anything else on the internets. No offense intended to the Twitterites present. My counter-argument would be that because it takes less time to post on it people do it more often and therefore could end up spending more time overall. Anyway, I'm glad the Swiss did well and not totally surprised since Spain are among the great underachievers of this tournament. A couple of my friends are huge Spanish supporters, but I warned them that notwithstanding their FIFA ranking, Euro 2008 victory and impressive qualifying run, history is not on their side in the World Cup. Uruguay is up 1-0 at half time against South Africa. Hopefully that will change in the second forty-five, I'd like to see RSA get something from this.
