As we inch closer and closer to the start of the World Cup, the storylines will begin to trickle. Usually, the stories pertain to the sacrifices that the players from multiple countries have made for the chance to win the ultimate prize in the world of soccer. But fans in England want to be sure that you are aware of the sacrifices they’re willing to make just to see their countrymen win the World Cup. And trust me, it’s a pretty big sacrifice.
England fans are so desperate to see the national team win the World Cup that 12% say they would give up sex for a year if it happened.
And a third are so keen for a first win since 1966 they would do the housework for 12 months. Even a night of passion with Cheryl Cole would be turned down by 51%, if it meant winning the cup.
Even less chivalrously, 10% said they’d happily dump their girlfriend. And 14% would grow a mullet in honour of ex-England star Chris Waddle.
You see what happens when fans hasn’t seen in a winning team in almost 50 years? Desperation (and crazy talk) sets in. Just imagine what a Cubs fan would be willing to give up.
