For most of us, after the US was defeated by Belgium in the World Cup last week, our interest in soccer returned to its normal state, that is to say, we stopped caring. If there's one thing that really drives Americans crazy about the sport, it's not the low scores or the fact that a game can end in a tie. No, it's the flops. And yes, while we experience flops on some level in the NBA (ahem, Lebron) no flop can compare to some of the overacting we've seen in Brazil over the last few weeks.
We've been following your World Cup tweets closely and found a few of them that capture exactly what we're talking about.
I'm ready for the World Cup to be over, not bc the US is out, but bc I'm tired of watching players flop around like fish on land. #WorldCup— Taylor Johnson (@im_taylorj) July 4, 2014
My favorite kind of flop = the player holds the wrong limb while faux writhing. #WorldCup— Dan Smith (@dansmithphd) July 4, 2014
Soccer players to have an extra arm grafted on to their bodies so they have one extra body part to grab when they flop. #WorldCup— Fake Dispatch (@Fake_Dispatch) July 4, 2014
I met a soccer player. I told him I was a comic. He said "Tell me a joke." I was like “Come on, I don’t say 'You’re a soccer player…flop”— Adam Hunter (@AdamComedian) June 30, 2014
When is the World Cup over again?
