All the World's a Stage


For this year's World Cup. Go USA. Congrats to Germany as they win their opener. I love soccer. Sometimes this countries dismissal of the most popular game in the world, makes me sorry that I don't live somewhere else the reveres the game. It is everyman's game. Ghana is in the world cup for the first time. I will secretly be rooting form them--shhhh they are in the same group as the USA. More later about how soccer explains the world.....

I love soccer too! I used to play and coach. When I lived in Greece, I realized why the rest of the world loves it so much. It's insane. The first time I went to a game (with my poly sci professors, no doubt) in Athens, a riot broke out in the parking lot, we were tear gassed, people were setting rolls of toilet paper on fire in the stands then throwing them on the field, and most of the player's heads were wrapped in bandages from rival fans throwing half-filled water bottles at their heads. It was awesome.
