Ok, it’s the first Sunday in about a month without a soccer match. That hurts.
I LOVE the World Cup along with a few billion people around the globe. I think that is one of the big reasons I like it so much. With American (Happy 4th of July) opinion aside, soccer IS the world’s sport and it’s fantastic to watch. With a little Dutch and German heritage in our family, we are hoping for a Netherlands/Germany final next Sunday.
I know Ingrid’s Uncle Don is a BIG Dutch supporter and lives in Holland so we may be leaning to the Netherlands and perhaps wearing a little orange if we can get through to the finals this week.
As you’ve seen documented in this blog many times, I love sports. Sports has also been an amazing help in getting through these first three months without Chris. Obviously lacrosse was a MAJOR part of our lives in the past 8 years. Being able to go on the emotional ride with the Canucks this Spring and then following the Flyers (Hawks officially omitted from this blog until Canucks beat them in playoffs) through to the Cup Final, watching Tiger implode on the golf course and off, or following the World Cup of Soccer, it is the ‘guy drama’ that keeps many of us captivated and inspired. If I was writing a grief book for guys, there would be a chapter in there called, ‘watch sports on TV…it’s good for you’, or something like that!
Anyhoo…back to today…I am missing those vuvuzelas strangely enough. Hold it. There’s a BC Lions game on at 4? Great. Those CFL horns are a close 2nd.
Have a great week.
