â†µIt's one thing to get caught too long on a replay. It's entirely â†µanother to spend 30 seconds going OMG â†µVUVUZELA* while interesting things are actually happening on the â†µfield. And it's a third thing entirely to linger on a coach who is â†µreacting in no way whatsoever. At that point you might as well â†µshow a still shot of a mannequin. â†µâ†µ
â†µBut many sins can be forgiven this man for capturing a strange little â†µperson during yesterday's Brazil-Italy match. Prepare to be â†µmesmerized: â†µ
â†µWe finally have an answer for "is there anyone Bob Bradley would â†µstart Freddy Adu over?" Unless the child's husky stare proves â†µhypnotizing to the opposition, it's him. â†µ
â†µ*("Take away the vuvuzela," says AP sports writer Raf â†µCasert, "and you take away the essence of the South African â†µfootball fan." Mr. Casert, this is the idea. When your essence â†µconsists of 90 minutes of pointless insectoid droning, it should be â†µtaken away from you and locked in a box until such time as you are not â†µannoying the entire world.) â†µâ†µ
