Who Needs a World Cup? FIFA President Wants to Have a Galactic Cup

"Football is about freedom, equality and respect." 

 

Or, at least it is according to Sepp Blatter, FIFA president (and yes, for all you Americans out there, he means "soccer").

 

In his address to the FIFA Congress the day before the Brazil World Cup kick-off, Blatter dared to ask "We shall wonder if one day our game is played on another planet? Why not? Then we will not only have a World Cup, we will have inter-planetary competitions. Why not?"

 

Really, though, why not?

 

I'm sure first thing NASA scientists would do if extraterrestrials contacted Earth would be to challenge them to a soccer match, victor take all. At least, that's what I would do.
