Just when I thought FIFA was going to try and go toe-to-toe with the United States Department of Justice…Sepp Blatter stepped down.
Wow. Either Jimmy Hoffa’s ghost is testifying against Blatter or the chickens came home to roost and they like Switzerland this time of year.
Wait. I’ve got it. Time travel is possible and Ben Franklin came back from the future wit the evidence that Blatter was the second gunman on the grassy knoll that deadly day in Dallas.
Okay, enough with the speculation.
HE WAS THE DEFLATOR!!!!
Wait, no…that’s just absurd. The really real is as follows.
Blatter abruptly called for a press conference. At that press conference he announced he resignation…in six months. This was just a few days after he won re-election to the presidency of the world federation of football. He was at the pinnacle of power within the soccer world. He was a five-time president of FIFA. This is a major force in the world of sport and entertainment. They like to have this little party every four years that catches a lot of scratch.
So, I’m at a loss. It’s like the Emperor in Star Wars just backed off the whole blowing up planets with the Death Star and decided to spend more time with his family back on Korriban. (For those of you not fluent in Star Wars Geek, that’s the Sith Homeworld.)
So now we wait for the super special FIFA congress to elect that guy from Jordan and learn to hate like we all hated Blatter.
I’m still waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop out of a back room and tell us all we’ve just been punk’d.
Till next time, keep it a 100.
