With Total Sports Blog’s own Hook getting ready to head to Brazil for the FIFA World Cup, I figure what better way to prepare for biggest football, and yes Americans I’m calling it that instead of soccer, championship, then showing this video from Sunday’s episode of HBO’s Last Week with John Oliver.
Oliver, who is a fan of the sport, describes how his excitement about the World Cup falls under The Sausage Principle, which dictates that if you love something, never find out how it was made.
In this 13 minute video after the jump, nothing goes unmocked. From protests in the host country to the laws they create to host it, from awarding Qatar the tournament at the time of year when temperatures can reach 112 degrees Fahrenheit to their bizarre and imposing meeting rooms. Oliver is definitely on top form.
Everyone at Total Sports Blog hopes that Hook has a great time and a safe trip in Brazil.
