So you may have noticed that I haven't been posting as often as usual on my blog. There is a reason for this and here it is:WM Fieber!! Although I wouldn't really describe myself as a soccer fan, there is just something special about the World Cup. It's not just a sport's event, it's country against country, continent against continent. We just don't have anything to compare it to in the U.S. Speaking of the U.S., our team has been doing great, especially when you consider the U.S. generally still considers soccer to be a sport for women and children. As perhaps expected, any men who play the sport do it out of love and it shows. They have been playing with passion and team spirit and we've been cheering them on, especially when they got cheated out of that goal.
WM days are also easy days in a way. You never wake up thinking, "What am I going to do today?" because you already know. You're going to watch a hell of a lot of soccer. Three games a day for the next week and then all the finals and the end game in July. I never catch all three games, but with every bar and liquor store and mom and pop Laden showing them on a wide variety of screen sizes, you're never that far behind. And on Wednesday I'll be watching the U.S. game at Brachvogel Biergarten, feeding the babies Kinder Schnitzel while I cheer our boys on. And in the evening, Deutschland....Anyway, you're sure to hear more from me come mid-July. ;)
