Welcome to the World Cup

Me, oh, my! This is the day of days for football fans around the world. Welcome to the biggest sporting event on the world level every four years. It far surpasses the Olympics. Everyone stops to support the one team representing their country. There is no medal count. It is all about the one team on one field. It does not get any better than this. I implore all of my friends who may not have much interest in soccer to take the time to check out at least one game. I don't care if it's the U.S. or not. Just watch a game. Watch the tens of thousands of fans chanting in unison. Watch the precision of the passes. Watch the athleticism of the keepers. Be warned, however, that there is no such thing as a media timeout. Commercials only come at halftime and the end of the game. You will get hooked. I promise. This game is great!
