The time has come when all the non-football fans, folks, media and the nations realize the power of this sport. When every kids in India will start supporting Brazil football team without realizing that Ronaldo now plays for Portugal and random uncle inquiring you, “what happened to Ronaldinho ?”The thing is that so much will be written/covered about the World Cup that everyone, including the average Johda Akbar/ Diya Aur Batti types will talk and discuss football.
How about media in India? How will they cope with this mega shift of power from elections/ipl/reality shows/ babas to football ?
Here is how media will treat the world cup in coming days. Arnab Gosawmi will try his best to do frankly speaking with Roy Hudson, while Deepak Chorasia will add Brazil to his illustriously list of danger travels of Iraq, Afghanistan, Mars and Noida and Rajdeep will claim that his channel was most watched during the World cup, like every other news channel. Other highlights are as under:
1. Man of Match will re-coined on Salman Khan movies.
2. All forwards will be called Strikers, no matter where they play.
3. Comparison between Football & Cricket
This will involve comparison between Chennai Super kings & Real Madrid, Pretty Zinta & Roman Abramovich, Usha Uthup & Piers Morgan, Rohit Sharma & Fernando Torres, & Greg Chappel & David Moyes.
4. WAGs and Swags
You may find Aaj Tak Visesh or Special Report on News24 on Wives and Girl Friends. Finally, one show where England might actually wins the World Cup.
5. Which Indian celeb went to Brazil for the finals
Around the semi-finals and finals, lot of Indian celebs will be traveling to Brazil. Our media will make sure they get more coverage than in-coming floods in Bihar and Assam.
If you are lucky football nerd, the chances are the hot girl may come across your table and ask you to explain offside rule. Actually I am putting all my eggs in this basket to get a date this month. Have a awesome Footballing time everyone.
