I played soccer in elementary school. And pretty quickly quit once the suicide runs started–because I don’t do that nonsense.
However, I’ve enjoyed watching the World Cup. I’m finding it interesting, particularly, to watch the various cultures interacting on the playing field.
That’s not to say I have a clue of what’s actually happening on the field at any given moment.
The town has gone all decked out for World Cup. The hotel is filled with decorations, which is lovely and festive. But not a lot of parties or full bars around here–everyone seems to watch the games with their families.
I’ll refrain from making any grand prognostications on who will win the World Cup–but it would be really cool to see Argentina take it all the way to the finals!
