Thank Goodness for the World Cup

Even though the World Cup is the most boring spectacle in the history of mankind, it served its purpose last night.

I am in Tokyo on business and last night, after having travelled 15 hours from the time I started at JFK until I reached my hotel, I fell asleep at 9 p.m.

Unfortunately, I woke up at 1:30 a.m. Thankfully, Japanese TV was covering the World Cup. Even though I watched another thoroughly boring game, Saudi Arabia vs. Ukraine, it did keep me more entertained than I would otherwise have been at that hour of the night.

And, it was boring enough to have put me back to sleep at 3 a.m.

I will never say another bad word about the World Cup.
