"We shall wonder if one day our game is played on the other planets. Why not? And then we won't have only a World Cup, we will have interplanetary competitions."

-- President Sepp Blatter, deflecting problems on the FIFA front to -- well -- outer space. (Wall Street Journal)

    Maybe HE should go to another planet. Or at least SHUT UP! When he open his mouth, only crap comes out! I hope he has an idea how much people hates him. Such an idiot to have so much power over something we love so much..

    Who among us doesn't yearn to watch Mars take on Jupiter on board a floating, multi-billion dollar space station stadium that will only be used four times before we let it drift off into another galaxy? This proves Mr Blatter is not only a global thinker, but a universal thinker too. He's absolutely the most spatially aware candidate for re-election as FIFA President. He'd be the astronaut's choice, if astronauts were allowed to vote in FIFA elections. And let's face it, as far as soccer goes, Qatar might as well be on another planet too.
