Johannesburg SA: Mr. Equine Butt of Chicago IL took his family to see the World Cup football matches. The football matchup between the USA and England being a once in a lifetime event, not occurring since the War of 1812.
Mr. Butt came with his cowbell, but was drowned out by all the horns (vuvuzela trumpets). Then the players of both teams took the field and Mr. Butt was flabbergasted as there were no highly padded team uniforms or helmets, only 22 guys in shorts, a round ball and two nets.
The game ended in a one to one tie without any "sudden death" overtime. The final insult to all sensibilities was no half-naked cheerleaders or any Gatorade poured on the winning coach. It was also too damn hot!
