Shooting Gallery

More then 50 games have been played at the 2010 World Cup as it enters the last week of play. I have watched many of the games when possible and I am beginning to wonder if the World Cup is a showcase of the world’s best soccer players or the world’s best snipers. I have never seen so many players go down like a tone of bricks time and time again. A big reason for the shootings has to be because of the poor security in South Africa. Before the tournament began I had heard that South Africa had spent about $30 million on security for the month long tournament. This differs greatly with the more than $1 billion dollars Canada spent on security for the G8 and G20 Summits in Huntsville and Toronto that lasted for about 5 days. Consequently, there is no way the security personnel can search every fan and apprehend their assault rifles before every match. Regardless, I have to give the players credit. They are continuously shot in their lower limbs, cry incessantly, and almost always find a way to shake it off in less then a minute and appear to be perfectly fine. I guess the snipers should aim for the heart in 2014 in Brazil.
