It has been a wearing World Cup in many ways. The vuvuzela for a start — a cross between tinnitus and an angry wasp. Germany and Argentina doing so well when they had no right to on pre-tournament form. Ghana cheated out of a semi-final slot by Uruguay. The Jabulani ball that was just too bloody round.
But be thankful for small mercies. At least Neil and Christine Hamilton didn’t release a World Cup song this time round.
