We all suffer from World Cup withdrawal, but here are the 10 most visible signs.
Car FlagsYour team was eliminated in the group stages, the World Cup ended two days ago and you still have 4 flags in your car. You just don’t seem to be able to let it go. I understand that your national pride only comes out every four years, if your country makes it there otherwise back to the store to buy a new flag from Senegal, because God forbid you don’t jump on the bandwagon. The tournament is over take it down.
CBCYou find yourself tuning into CBC hoping to find a World Cup game or recap and instead you get a brand new episode of Coronation Street. If that doesn’t bring back to earth I am not sure what will. For those of you outside of Canada, just replace CBC with your regular local broadcast channel, and Coronation Street with a local soap opera. You will get the point.
JerseysYou continue to wear your national team jersey even after the World Cup is over. You aren’t able to let it go yet, even if the regular club season and Champions League is just around the corner. It is time to put that jersey away so it still looks new four years from now when you will need it again.
Check out the papers every morning looking for the game schedule of the day and preview reports. It will take at least a week for you to be able to shake this one off. I find it to be one of the most long lasting effects of the World Cup.
