Near the Old Man of Storr, Scotland I took this in 2004

So, Fox is covering the World Cup today. The game I've just begun watching is between Ivory Coast and Germany.
 In the few minutes I've been watching, Ivory Coast has been accused by the announcers of "pushing and shoving",  the goalie, of being "a time waster" after she went down because she was kicked in her shoulder, and another Ivory Coast player was just referred to as " a good actress" when she got kicked in the head!
Not only do women playing sports seem to be of no importance to most people, including most TV stations,  ( CBC isn't airing the games, and CTV is only playing the games when Canada is playing), but racist attitudes prevail, and continue to further divide.
Not impressed. At all.
