Football or Rock & Roll?

OK, so you were the 106th caller to your local radio station (in a Monopoly board game kind of a way) and your choice of prizes are ...

1 - A trip to see your country play in Germany in the World Cup final.*

Or

2 - Hawaii to see U2?

*Just for the sake of the poll, your country is in the final 2.

if the poll was

1 - a trip to see your country play in germany in the world cup final

or

2 - a trip to the local pub to see a bon jovi cover band


i'd give serious consideration to #2... and i wipe my ass with bon jovi.

Not a soccer fan, or football for that matter. It's a no-brainer here

ROCK 'N' ROLL

Let's see here...

Favorite band that I'm NOT much into right now and who I've already seen live...

Vs.

- the greatest tournament in the world
- the greatest sport on earth
- being held in a country that I've been dying to visit
- plus my country is playing the final, you say???

no brainer

By the way... U2 is no longer rock n roll.

So I believe the thread title needs to be edited.

that's not even remotely close..football by a mile.




for those who don't like football, what would you say if option #1 was about your fav sports team getting to the biggest game in that sport (world series, NBA finals, super bowl etc)....?

I don't really even enjoy watching soccer (football...blah blah) but I would have to say football. There really has got to be nothing more exciting than those fans. I had a good time at a DC United game. That being said if we were to say U2 at Live Aid or at Wembley (insert any ginormous European/MExican stadium) during the Joshua Tree tour...well then you have yourself a battle!!

...Cos the words Rock n Roll remind me of Led Zeppelin and NOT chart friendly pop rock U2.

Just because a band does well on the charts doesn't mean they aren't rock and roll...

Don't mind me. U2 is the last thing on my mind these days.
