Drive-in to the World-Cup

Drive-in theatre

The whole world cup business is hectic. All the pubs, bars etc are packed, and everyone's really up in my personal breathing space...Agreeeably this is part of the world-cup culture....crowded places full of beer, men and noise, but sometimes there are those nights where you just wanna watch a low-profile game with you're girlfriend/wife without being violated by a plethora of hooligans.

This gap of course inspired the drive-in world-cup theatre. A car-park with hundreds of spaces facing a 30m+20m (or so) projected wide-screen. Much like the old-school drive-ins. Traditionally, this type of theatre attracted couples so this would be perfect really. Drinks and food would be served by waiters on skaters, and audio-commentary would be available by radio.

If I had just thought of this about 6-months ago....

       //audio-commentary would be available by radio//. I watched (on TV) most of the first match without any commentry at all - just the sound of the crowd and the players - there was no commentry soundtrack at all. It was unusual, to say the least. Finally I switched channels and spent the rest of the match listening to commentry in Thai.   

       Don't ask me why.

       Really....<pauses in mindbogglement>.   

       My fella would faaaaaaar rather watch a game of any level of profile with a plethora of dunken, belching hooligans (known as friends) than with me.

       [ling], why?

       Why I don't want you to ask me, or:
Why I listened in Thai? (expecting the answer: 'Yes').

       Why you switched channels?

       The grass was greener on the other side.
