World Cup starts

It's been a long wait for all three soccer fans in the U.S. and the millions around the world, but the World Cup is finally here. And, as a bonus, the games are all at normal times here. No staying up all night to try and catch a peek at the matches.

Germany looked good in the opener. They're sporting a new offensive minded look this year. Exciting instead of solid and boring.

And in game two, Poland got schooled. Yippee for the little guys.

I'll be pretty much lost to the world for much of the next few weeks as visions of soccer balls and the song below fill my head.

Ole! - Bouncing Souls

I'm kind of sad that the games won't be in the middle of the night. It was fun last time, was it not?

It was indeed many, big-time funs. Casa Eileen was an excellent World Cup venue.

But it was sort of a drag to have to stay up that late. It made me pick the games that I really wanted to see and skip the others.

I'll start watching sports when they start televising the Quidditch Cup! ;)

Trinidad was an AMAZING underdog match... Brought tears to my eyes ;-)

Shawn said...

T-mom - Too man Muggles for Quidditch...

Kitty - That was my favorite match so far. There were some other good ones. We shall not mention the U.S. match.

By the way, I'm glad you're still alive and kicking.
