Looking at the title of today, perhaps i would like to write about the score, which team going to win, who is the best players or else. In reality, its not going to happen. Its not that im not a football fan or what but i would rather choose to talk about what is actually happen to our world when this big event happen.
First,its makes us, people to forget all the thing except football. There is something not right when something misfortune happen in front of us but u choose to neglect it. When we should think why aid from Malaysia being attack by Zionist, we choose to celebrate football and cherish for them. The sorrow that we should feel suddenly disappear when this event begins. We become too passion and enthusiastic about it and forget about other things. And why we choose it to be like that? Why we willing to shout for our favorite teams in "mamak stall" while knowing the fact that they will never heard it? And why we choose to woke up late at 2 a.m just to watch football?
All of these obsession and passion of football can lead to one thing. Gambling!! To bet to someone to choose what team going to win the match or which team will be the champion for FIFA 2010 can be a form of gambling. When we betting to our friend saying that if germany will be the champion of FIFA 2010 you have to treat me with McDonald or if not i will treat you and both of them agreed. Here, although no money are going to involve, but gambling has involve. Although it looks small but it is disastrous. To gamble is one sin and to consume the reward (i.e the McDonald) is another sin that can destroy our mind and soul.
People will be so passion about something when they put something in it. In this case, gambling. Although many people will say that, no, im not doing it, so im just fine. But,the intention of this kind of competition will lead into it. Its like when people gamble for horse race. But in this content, its a same concept with a different situation. You bet which horse will win and your money will be triple! Finally, im not suggesting people to leave football or whatsoever. I just want people to be decent in things that we do and not overreacting about it. Peace!
