Seeing George


So I'm watching the friendly between Brazil and Switzerland and what do I see on one of the sideboards?
George Foreman's big ass grinning head.
They are marketing the Foreman Grill to the Swiss.
I'm not sure what this says about capitalism or US / Europe relations. But it was damn odd.

I didn't see his head, but I did see the huge "George Foreman Grills" sideboard.

The sad fact is that older foodie nations like Switzerland and France are becoming more Americanized, while formerly non-foodie nations like England are becoming foodies.

Interesting.

It was on the same board. The first time I saw it was when they did one of those weird euope tv camera dives straight into his grinning face. It was bizarre.
