I interrupt the regularly scheduled program for the following.
World Cup!!! Oh how I love thee!
A cousin of mine who is into all kinds of sports recently asked me... what is the big deal? I watched a game for 3 hours and there was no goal. It was a 0-0 tie. What's the point?
I asked him, what is the point of Nascar? Bunch of guys and maybe one woman driving around in circles. But yet it is exciting. And people have dedicated their lives to support this sport. And it is entertaining. Or else people wouldn't really watch it. And let's face it. There is an industry that the Nascar fans support.
World cup is about watching the world's best sportsmen playing a game. Unlike American football, these athletes don't play for a few minutes and go sit down to inhale oxygen. They are real macho men. And macho women. The have strength and power. And know how to use it.
So far I've watched every single game. They are all just amazing. I am watching the England versus Germany game right now. For Janice and my other friends across the pond I hope that England wins. They were already robbed of a goal. We'll see what happens in the second half.
This afternoon is the Argentina versus Mexico game. I am very torn about who to root for. I heart Argentina! They make me week at my knees. And give me butterflies in the stomach. However... I love Mexico too.
What to do? I'll be happy regardless who wins and crushed regardless who loses.
All I say to the Argentina and Mexico teams is this...
Kisses await for you in Austin if you win this game.
