Football World Cup 2014 #EpicFireworks

There is little in this world that makes a football fan go weak at the knees in this Country but the World Cup is just the ticket for the fans of ‘the beautiful game’.

2014 sees the 20th World Cup get under way in Brazil on 12th June and it will continue until 13th July when the final is played and its all over for another four years.

The World Cup competition started in 1930 when FIFA President, Jules Rimet, after whom the coveted World Cup trophy was named, decided to host an international tournament with only 13 teams.

Today, the event starts with almost 200 teams from every corner of the World who compete during the two-year long qualifiers to win the chance to take part in the last 32.

Out of the 19 tournaments competed in since its inception the cup has only ever been lifted by 8 differing national teams. Of course anyone above 45 or so will remember fondly the magnificent prowess of the magnificent Pele and in latter years, Ronaldinho and Ronaldao took the reigns and continued in the same vein. Pele of course was on the winning side in 1958, 1962 and 1970 and the Brazilians have won the cup 5 times already and with their strong defensive side, they are tipped well for another win this year but of course the England squad may have other ideas.

Other teams have won it multiple times too and in fact our first match is against Italy who have won the cup four times already the second, against Uruguay who again have won twice so we definitely do not have an easy ride through the first round until the final match of the group against Costa Rica.

There are a few positives to holding the competition in Brazil not least of all that they are unlikely to come across much snow or rain but the heat will be restrictive so fingers crossed that steps in their training this has really been concentrated on.

England’s First Round matches are as follows:

14th June 2014 – England Vs Italy 23:00 hours
19th June 2014 – Uruguay Vs England 20:00 hours
24th June 2014 – Costa Rica Vs England 17:00 hours

Football Stadium Implosion

On the 11th April 2010 the massive football stadium was brought to the ground in a huge implosion in Texas USA at the home of the Dallas Cowboys American Football team.

More than 20,000 spectators came out to watch the landmark being brought to rubble after a ton of dynamite was planted at key points inside the structure and a fireworks display marked the occasion.

The famous Dallas Cowboys played 38 seasons in this world famous stadium and it was the venue for the brilliant movie “Any given Sunday” and the world famous Coca Cola TV commercial where “mean” Joe Greene throws his Pittsburgh Steelers shirt to a kid with the Epic line “hey kid, catch” before the kid hands him a coke. Classic.

In days gone by the Dallas Cheerleaders were considered the best in the world and are emblazoned in the memories of millions of sports fans (mostly men).

All of this made the place the stuff of legends and its passing marked the end of an era for many Americans.
