Boredom Buster: World Cup Special!

11 June 2010

Ok ladies, so the World Cup’s here and as that old saying goes – if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. So this week's Boredom Buster is dedicated to educating you fabulous fashionistas in the way of the World Cup incase you need a helping hand. Grab a notepad…and a (stiff) drink, as here comes some serious footie trivia!
 
1966
Now, even the most football ignorant of us know that this was the (one and only) year that we won the World Cup.  For those of you who are feeling particularly dedicated to the quest of improving your football knowledge/are desperately bored, here are the match highlights.  For the rest of you we suggest you skip to 7.20 mins in the video to see a stunningly glamorous Queen Elizabeth II handing over the trophy!

1990
We couldn’t do a World Cup round-up without including at least one World cup song.  We’ve had a vote round the office, and this JUST scrapes in as our fave because it's the one that amuses us the most, not because we want it going round our heads all day (happy we cleared that up!)  Enjoy!
 
2009
Ok, we can’t say we totally get this, but JT from Men’s Health insists that this is THE best goal celebration ever, and that we all need to know about Maradona.  He’s a boy, so we believe him….not a move we’ll be trying….

2010
Still a bit confused about what’s going on/ when you’ll be able to get your hands on the remote control/ have an actual conversation with your other half?  Well the lovely people at the Spanish newspaper Marca have created this quite frankly spell-binding World Cup wheel. Footie fan or not, this will provide hours of fun!
 
And for the pure glam-factor here’s Shakira with this years World Cup song Waka Waka – oh, what we wouldn’t do for that stomach...
