GIBRALTAR, June 28, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- So you're not into the whole face painting, flag wearing patriotism to support your team. There are other ways you can celebrate and show your pride and leave the couch at home. Flag foods, parades and cookouts are just the tip of the iceberg.

Most people celebrate the World Cup at their local pub or at home over a few drinks and some munchies. Sporting your favorite team's t-shirt or waving your country's flag is always a great idea, but with World Cup fanatics everywhere, people are doing crazy things to celebrate the occasion and some are taking it a bit far.

Last week, a group of Brazilian girls chose to paint their naked bodies and play a football game at Copacabana. And a Paraguayan swimsuit model offered herself to the whole Portuguese team if they win the World Cup. Sometimes however, the celebration goes too far. Last Tuesday, a 20-year-old student, jumped into the Han River to celebrate South Korea's second round of the World Cup finals. Fifteen minutes after jumping into the waters, the boy was found dead upstream.

Win or lose, there are responsible and thrilling things you can do to celebrate the good times. Dory42 an avid fan of the Greece team, Ethniki, was not much in a mood to celebrate when his team fell out of the running, but decided to fool around playing online anyway and ended up winning $24K playing at http://www.casino.com. It looks like there are more ways than one way to come out a winner during the World Cup.
