Time to Jump on the World Cup Bandwagon
So - i was rather (yawn) nonchalant about the World Cup. I confess that I don't know a whole heck of a lot about soccer - other than having the feeling that everyone's at a party and I didn't even know why I wasn't invited. But - because I have friends who are crazy about soccer and Sportscenter relentlessly plays World Cup clips. I know that the US was shamefully booted early and that Brazil imploded. So imagine my surprise today when I woke up and realized that Italy was alive and doing well! My Italian blood surged and I felt a tinge of pride in my pasta filled 'spare tire'! Go Italy! Viva la World Cup!
