With only 4 hours till kickoff between Spain and the Netherlands, two countries which have yet to win the world cup, there is a possibility that a win for one country may be more historical for reasons unrelated to soccer(football).

Bobbi Eden, a Dutch erotic film actress, tweeted a promise that if the Netherlands won the cup, every one of her twitter followers would be entitled to oral sex, courtesy of her and a few of her co-worker friends. The Huffington Post reported on July 10th that she had “more than 20,000 followers.” Her twitter, at the time of writing, shows 109,793 followers. Not bad.

Days earlier there was a story about Larissa Riquelme, a Paraguayan model who promised to run naked through the streets if her team won. Unfortunately, Paraguay was eliminated, though Riquelme has decided to follow through on her plan, a sort of consolation prize, as I see it, for losing and for being one of the most boring teams to watch.

What’s going on here? I thought soccer was about fist fights and vandalism, drunken song and face paint. Apparently, it’s about other things, too. Particularly, sex, and in the case of Eden, the effective use of social-media to create buzz and self-promote on the back end of an international event. It’s a great idea, but 109,793 is a big number. 109,793 is a lot of people. 109,793 is a lot of schlong.

If Eden does decide to make good on her promise, it’ll be as historical as the Netherlands winning the World Cup for the first time. For 109,793 men, it will be an especially long and harrowing 90 minutes. Good luck to the Dutch.  Good luck to her. Good luck to the 109,793.

P.S. A por ellos.
