If you're an American, the opening ceremonies were a little difficult to watch, unless you had access to Telemundo or ESPN3. Those of you who didn't catch it probably missed the packed Brazilian stadium letting FIFA President Sepp Blatter know exactly how they feel about him.

Also on Extra Mustard: Sepp Blatter... IN SPACE!

As soon as his name was announced, the entire crowd began to boo him. John Oliver gives a pretty good explanation of why people hate FIFA so much, but the Spark Notes version is this: FIFA is a morally corrupt organization that compromises the players, the fans, and the integrity of the game and Sepp Blatter is the dictatorial figure leading the charge against The Beautiful Game.

You gotta wonder though: is David Stern jealous?
