World Cup fever

I've been rather lazy about blogging lately. The World Cup is taking up most of my time. By the time I finish work, I head home, grab a bite to eat, get changed, and go over to a friend's place to watch the matches. I have managed to watch only one or two full 11PM matches...I usually get so sleepy by halftime, I either go back home or pass out on my friend's couch until the match ends, at which point I peel myself off the couch and drag myself home.

I am not a football fan in general....But the World Cup is a different story. Sure it's exciting to have all those really amazing players gathered in one country. And it's great to partake in the excitement of a really good game. But I think what I love the most about the World Cup is the togetherness: people gathering under one roof to watch the matches and cheer for their favourite teams.

We laugh, we scream, we cheer, we boo, we play, we argue, we debate, we eat, we drink, we snack...and we have a blast!

I am positive I'll go through withdrawal symptoms when the World Cup ends. Everyone will go back living their own lives, dealing with work, and traffic, and high rents, and everyday worries...

I'm really going to miss the World Cup (and those hot players of course!)

....oh Freddie......

Keefie...no idea really! I am as confused as ever...Czech Republic's performance against Italy upset me yeserday... And I did cheer for Brasil during last night's game (and what a game that was!), but when they eventually play Ghana, I'll be supporting Ghana...Although Ghana's Israeli flag waving antics ticked me off...even if they apologised for it. The Swedish team has Freddie and the Italian team is hot...

So....like I said....very confused :)
