World Cup

A moment on a Friday to think about a minor sporting event taking place this summer: the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The draw was held today and the USA did pretty well, but are paired with the mother country England, which will be a tough match for the new worlders to win.

This theme continues as Brazil and Portugal are in the same group. Normally this would be one of, if not the, match of the group stages, but Portugal have been unusually poor throughout the qualification and are lucky to be in at all.

Spain and any latin american country would also be similar and there they are with Chile and Honduras.

Perhaps I have a theme for my cheering: go new worlders!

If you think the world cup is a minor event let me put things in perspective: 6 billions and more will be watching the games. Countries, cities and thousands will be in the streets supporting their national teams because futbol soccer bring glory to countries. Plus: 204 countries are part of the FIFA. Yes it is a minor event this friday jaja.
