I am in no way a soccer fan. I don't actually understand half of what's going on when I watch. However, there's something pretty wonderful about World Cup Soccer, the same way that there's something pretty wonderful about the Olympics. I watched curling during the Winter Olympics with absolutely no idea of how the game was scored, much less strategies, rules or regulations. At least with soccer, a goal is a goal.
So I had the US versus Algeria match on today, and got to see the historic US goal. Was it exciting? You bet. Are those little horn tooting things annoying? Yes, indeedy. Will I be watching more? Most likely. Somehow, I thought it would be much hotter in South Africa in June. Have you caught any matches?
