I have been verbally spanked by more than one person for my lack of enthusiasm for the World Cup.
I’m not a soccer fan. To become an SSF (Sudden Soccer Fan) because of the frenzy surrounding the event doe not feel authentic to me.
Turns out it’s practically un-American.
To add insult to injury, I’m writing this post during the US / Portugal World Cup match.
Which I’m not watching.
Don’t get me wrong — I truly hope the US wins — but it’s still soccer.
I’m okay with getting the score later.
In other sporting news, the Championships Wimbledon begin tomorrow, where many Americans will be competing on its famous grass courts.
I love tennis and will be watching as much coverage as my schedule allows. I won’t verbally abuse you, however, if you have other plans.
