Why did I do it?

Somehow I sat, transfixed, by the non-event of the world cup so far: Switzerland vs Ukraine. There was something so awful about it that I couldn't move from the sofa from where I was watching it.
In retrospect, I could have spent the 2.5hrs entering marked registers, or doing some other productive tasks, like cleaning the house. They should just have gone straight to penalties, instead of the charade of actually playing football.
There is something also deeply ironic in that the Swiss have been eliminated without conceding a goal. On last nights performance you can see why they didn't concede, but they never looked like scoring either.
