Is Blatter Rehearsing a Deathbed Confession or What?
There's always that scene in movie scripts.
It's the one where comic-book and James Bond villians just can't resist describing their evil plans before attempting to dispose with the hero.
Gotta be the ultimate ego rush.
But then, they screw it all up because the hero lives.
These days, though, disgraced FIFA bastard-in-residence Sepp Blatter can't even get his role in the script right.
He's all but admitted voting to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups was rigged, as if that's news. Incredibly, here's the pertinent passage he gave to the Russian news agency Tass:
In 2010 we had a discussion of the World Cup and then we went to a double decision. For the World Cups it was agreed that we go to Russia because it’s never been in Russia, eastern Europe, and for 2022 we go back to America. And so we will have the World Cup in the two biggest political powers.
And everything was good until the moment when [French President Nicolas] Sarkozy came in a meeting with the crown prince of Qatar, who is now the ruler of Qatar (Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani). And at a lunch afterwards with Mr. Platini he said it would be good to go to Qatar. And this has changed all pattern.
Former French great Michel Platini is suspended, too, and Blatter's got the knives out for his role in exposing FIFA's web of corruption:
|... [H]e wanted to be FIFA president. But he had not the courage to go as the president. And now we are in such a situation in football.|
Which really set the stage for the Sepper to confirm his shoe size matched his mouth's:
|If the USA was given the World Cup, we would only speak about the wonderful World Cup 2018 in Russia and we would not speak about any problems at FIFA.|
Say hello to Bernie, dude. And stop rambling.
