World Cup Madness

Uploaded: Jun 23, 2014

Apologies - I haven't had a chance to go to the movies or do anything I would write about in-depth here. Why? World Cup! My husband and I are both fanatical World Cup viewers. The World Cup is one of my favorite events—when it rolls around, I'm pretty much glued to the games.

We've picked who we think is going to get out of the groups, which is not necessarily who we want to get out of the groups. Although we're both rooting for the U.S. team to get out of the group (and after Sunday's game, it looks like that's possible), we both have other teams we follow. Mine are France and the Netherlands, the former because I'm a Francophile whose favorite city is Paris, and the latter because I've lived in the Netherlands and like the way they play. His are the African teams—Ghana, Nigeria, Algeria and Ivory Coast—because he prefers teams that are economically and historically underdogs.

Which teams are you rooting for, besides the United States team?
