World Cup is killing me.

    Not only did my team get their azzes beat, I have seen a major drop in Adsense revenue beginning from the first day of the World Cup. This may have no correlation however, since most of my traffic is US, and most Americans could care less about soccer (excluding myself). Anyone else seeing major drop in revenue/visits due to the World Cup?

    The world cup is slaughtering my visitors! Dropped by half to 75%. It has got so bad I just googled the end date and it doesn't end until 9th July! *aghast* (mostly my visitors come from the UK)

    Patronage of old london maps has slumped to bored tescoe supervisors in the UK and terrorists in training in Pakistan.

    I don't see how the World Cup is costing any of you money. Do the goons that fill those soccer stands even know how to use a computer? I thought they were all drunk hoodlums with no jobs. :D

    I wish the world cup was squashing my traffic...I actually had to restart my mysql server earlier because of too many connections :(. If I had a website about "pubs" or "drinking" I would definatly be worried...they aren't interested in reading about it, they're slamming them down in reality...But things like this come and go, and will again as always, come to pass ;).

    Sounds like the kids are out of school and looking for "fun" on the net. The porn sites must be going nuts, too. :D

    Well it does generate more money then all sports in the US together... and I am sure the 'goons' know how to use the computer better then all of us! :p

    Anyway, my predictions for the game: Final: GER vs BRA Outcome: 2:4 :p

    Since I had anticipated this to happen I had published a blog featuring Ronaldinho.
    Teaser articles in the blog had diverted a lot of traffic to my sites.

    There's a lot more people than right-wing nazis that watch football. 80% of the entire population watched the Englend game on Saturday. Most business is closing early on Thursday for the next one.

    Sure.

    The whole world is not watching the World Cup but one must understand that many activities are effected in various ways.

    Coupled with F!, tennis, etc. make things (including sex) worst.

    Hell yeah, the country pretty much comes to a standstill, most other countries are the same.

    I read a news article this morning about an area in Ghana that had a powercut during the game last night. The locals went and attacked the electricity company and trashed the building.
