- Watched a repeat of the Iran versus Mexico game on the Spanish channel just so I could hear the announcer scream, "Goooooooooooooooooooal!"
- Watched MLS soccer. Compared to the World Cup, it's like watching a little league game, but it was an exciting little league game. Chicago took a two goal lead after the Revolution were robbed by a bad offsides call. Then during the four minute injury time, the Revolution scored two quick goals to earn the tie. Amazing.
- Went to youtube.com to watch soccer highlights.
- Showed up late to work on Monday because I couldn't stop watching the U.S. game.
Being misinformed helps too. I don't know enough to complain about the announcers. I don't know enough to dislike any players, teams, or coaches. So I'm stupidly enjoying some good soccer without my usual cynicism.
I'm so excited about the World Cup that I might need to find a bar to watch the games this Saturday morning (Godfather, let me know if you're interested).
Finally, some World Cup highlights.
