As I write this post at 7:30 Costa Rica time, I just watched the opening ceremony of the 2010 South Africa World Cup and waiting for the first game between South Africa and Mexico. If you are not into soccer or football, as we call it everywhere outside of the US, try to watch the opening ceremony because it was full of color and displayed amazing images of African culture.
On another note, rain has sort of kept me indoors over the past couple of days so I've been spending lots of time with my family talking. Today actually looks better so after the game will go out before the rain comes.

Enjoy this weekend... I know I'll be watching all my 6 teams on the field!
Go USA! I am so excited and will be on the edge of my seat for a while.ReplyDelete
How exciting! I hope to catch some games..they are on so early though!ReplyDelete
Hope you're having a wonderful trip in Costa Rica, Elie! Can't wait to hear all about it when you get home! Safe travels, xoxo.ReplyDelete
So glad you found my blog and yours is just lovely! Enjoy Costa Rica - it's a magical place for sure.ReplyDelete
You sound like a big football fan. France is playing right now - I can hear the neighbors now... Enjoy the games and the time with your family!ReplyDelete
I am not a big football fan, but I still played in a team as a kid. I think we Swedes all have at one point! :) My husband keeps me updated on the results! Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Watching the world cup as well. We are having a house bet... making it much more exciting:)ReplyDelete
My kids and husband all have world cup fever...me, I am just hiding behind my laptop! :)ReplyDelete
I love how excited everyone is for the world cup this time around...I think football/soccer is finally really catching on in the states! People were going NUTS in Chicago!ReplyDelete
World Cup fever is a phenomenon! Wish I was in the midst of it. Not really into soccer, but share the delight and roaring happiness for South Africa for hosting their first world cup competition. Hope you've enjoyed each game viewing.ReplyDelete
What a great post! (Even if I read it a few days late) We were in Dublin for the weekend and caught the USA v England game which was great fun. It's amazing how football crazy the rest of the world is! Lots of fun...go USA!ReplyDelete
