Copa do mundo

Oh, glorious day! Oh, wonderful first day of the 2006 World Cup!


I. Am. So. Excited.

Number of soccer games I watch outside of the World Cup: 0.
Percentage of the World Cup I attempt to watch: 100.

As far as I'm concerned, the World Cup is THE sporting event. After missing the majority of the 2002 tournament (I was working at a summer camp in Middle o' Nowhere, PA), I've been craving this for quite some time.

And it's finally here! Hurrah!

Despite being at work, I am incredibly sneaky and managed to watch the majority of both games today. Tomorrow, I will so be akwake in time to watch my boyfriend, David Beckham, and the rest of England take on Paraguay.

It's fun, being excited about an event that is capturing the interest of the rest of the world. There's so much energy!

It makes me want to turn cartwheels.

(And I'm really shitty at cartwheels.)

My goal is to attend the 2010 World Cup. It's in South Africa. I've always wanted to go to South Africa! I've always wanted to see a World Cup.

So that's, like, mostly perfect.

Now I just need to come up with a plan/traveling partner/time off of work/money.

I wish I could get excited about the World Cup but I can't.

You're not the first person I've heard say that, PT.

Wish I could make you excited about the World Cup!
