Now, I’m not the worlds biggest sports fan, although I do watch the occasional Red Sox game or Super Bowl; and sometimes to get back to my roots I’ll watch a little hockey or curling. Plus once or twice a summer I like to go see the VT LakeMonsters (formerly the Expos)
Latley I’ve been hearing and reading about the up-coming Soccer World Cup and I’ve got to say I’m kind of excited. I remember back in 1998 I watched quite a few matches with friends, and although they’re long (and sometimes boring) the passion and fanaticism of the European and South American teams and fans is very exciting.
So even though I know nothing about soccer, and I’ll probably forget all about the World Cup in a day or two and never watch a match, I’m going to root for Ghana and Costa Rica. Go Teams!!
