So the World Cup started yesterday. There are games going on from June 14th-July 15th. The World Cup is huge! Even people like myself who don’t follow the sport year round, stop for a while and watch. My brother and I grew up playing soccer. I played from age 5 until age 15, he played from age 5 until now. He still plays indoor soccer at a local YMCA now that I think about it lol. 😀 We both like the sport but it is hard to get access to it in the United States, it seems. Well, until the World Cup starts, and even then it isn’t advertised heavily. In total they play 64 games to see who will reign supreme. As most people heard a while back the US team did not make it in this time, which is sad. But to be honest we have always had a better women’s team. 😀 I have two personal friends in the Netherlands and they are upset they don’t have a team either. Normally I root for them because I have ties with people there, but I can’t even do that this year.
I know here in the Eastern Standard time zone that we have games at 8am this morning, 11am, and 2pm today. I’ll try to have them on in the background somehow. I think the only game that will be worth a real watch might be the 2pm game between Portugal and Spain. I have the Egypt v. Uruguay game on Hulu right now.
This all being said, do you watch the world cup? Do you have a favorite country that partakes? I used to be a huge Brazil fan back in the day. Let me know in the comments below. If you are watching the games let me know if you do anything fun for them, like watch in groups and have parties? Just a thought. Enjoy your day and the weekend!
I’ll see you all again Monday! 😀 😀
ps just informed that Egypt hasn’t been in the world cup in 28 years! wow.
