Foot Lose

The World Cup has bared its heart of darkness - that cheating works.  A few days ago, we saw a German goalkeeper feign a ball in play to rob England of a key goal.  Last night, to their shame, Uruguay twice used knees and hands of "God" to bounce a ball in play out of their net - and still won, since the Ghana team, so full of heart and energy, were weak on penalty kicks.  Ghana - the only African team still in at this late stage - should, by all that is just, even dramatic, or fun - been the team to go on - instead, an unscrupulous Uruguay moves forward.  One hopes that the Netherlands will avenge the Ghanaian defeat.  Still, if play is without honour, why should we honour the winners?
