Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

The World Cup and my Campaign

My primary campaign stop today will be watching the World Cup in a local bar.  Many people reading this will wonder why watching soccer (or football for people outside of the US and Canada) wondering how the World Cup can be part of a presidential campaign.  the reason is simple:  It ties in with my Affordable Entertainment Awareness campaign, which is a cornerstone of my platform.

While getting World Cup tickets, flying to South Africa, and getting hotel accommodations cost a lot of money, the price of watching it on TV at home costs zero dollars and zero cents (plus applicable taxes).  I will be watching it at a local bar.  The price of the two beers and a burger will be the same whether the bar was showing the World Cup, Oprah Winfrey, or nothing at all.  In many places, this will not cost much.

Going to a movie can cost an arm and a leg if one brings a date.  Two tickets, two large soft drinks, and two large popcorns or candies can cost $50.  And unlike sporting events that are shown live on television, movies take a long time from the time it is shown in theaters to the time it is shown at home.

I will not be campaigning during the game.  I will campaign before the game and after the game.  If the USA wins, people will be more receptive to my campaign.  GO USA!

Watching the World Cup on TV costs less than going to the movies.

P.S. For those of you in South Africa who are going to the US-Ghana game, this is suggested reading.

For the World Cuppers

Soccer (or Football for those not in the United States or Canada) is the most popular sport in the world.  It is the most popular sport in countries that don’t call it “soccer.”  If you are going one of the games the United States games (either against Slovenia on Friday or Algeria on the 23rd, and you are in the lower level where the TV cameras can see you, then I need a favor from you.   Please (with sugar on top) hold up a sign like the one below:

Please make sure sign is visible to the television!

Please make sure the sign is visible for the TV cameras!

If you’re going to one of the games but will be in a seat that the television cameras will not see, then please give the sign to somebody who will be near the front row.  Tell the person that I will work to improve relations between the United States and I will not exile William Shatner or Celine Dion there.

What is in it for you?  You will be famous for showing support for a candidate for office in another country.  It could lead to interviews with the major news stations in the United States.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
