So! The World Cup starts today. How many of you care? No, seriously. How many?
I cared a little bit, and then I married a German guy, and he cares a lot, and actually now so do I. It's an even trade; he never cared about baseball until he met me.
Obviously we are rooting for Germany. It would be nice to see the US do well too, but what are the odds of that happening? I'm guessing slim to none, despite what the media claims. It seems like every four years we read all about how this is really going to be the US's year, and then they don't even get out of group play.
Oh and I'd also like France to do well. Though nobody there expects that to happen. When I was in France a major department store was running an ad for an expensive TV saying that they would give purchasers' money back in full if France won the World Cup, and all my French friends were snorting and saying that was a safe bet for the store since there isn't a chance in hell that France will win. But still, it would be nice.
And I'd like Senegal to do well, except they aren't in it this time. Oh well.
So: gooooooo Germany! We will definitely be at a bar watching them play Australia this weekend.
What about you? Do you care about the World Cup? Will you be watching? Who will you be rooting for?
