World Cup Mania
I don't follow soccer/futbol/whatever. I am from Texas y'all, when we talk about football we do NOT mean soccer. My kids however are from Texas only on paper. Texas is a place they visit every few years on home leave or R&R. Living here in Germany they have definitely caught soccer fever. They play soccer on the playground every chance they get. Once a week they go to the soccer park for PE, Alonzo has even been to a professional game. They know the rules, they know the names of many of the players, at least the German ones. Right now they are up way past bedtime watching the US vs Ghana game of the World Cup. The US just scored tying the game at 1 to 1 so the kids are bouncing all over the room chanting USA! USA! USA! They are really into it, it is so cute. I just wish I had a clue of what was going on. My knowledge of soccer doesn't extend past the object is to kick the ball into the net, that's a touchdown right? Kidding...just kidding.
