Dsnito--I hope things have calmed down a bit before I get there on the 13th.!!! Being a middle aged American male, I HATE soccer (or as you guys call it---football). Take the goalie out every two minutes for a 1/2 minute or something--anything to give me some scoring! Just my age and upbringing, no doubt.
Don't worry Steve, I think until 13th the hysteria will calm down over here(I hope). Let me tell ya fellow, the local people's hysteria when the brazilian team's airplane was landing on the airport was a total crayziness, people started to scream, cry and some of them trying to run through the airplane runway!! Your son's fiancé can tell you how is that soccer madness!! It reminded me, you know, the Beatles arrival to their 1st US tour in 1964...what a hysteria!!
I love soccer(or football like we call it), but I'm not sooo fanatical to get hysteric at that point... I'm glad for the World Championship, but it's just a moment happiness to me. As in my turn, I don't hate american football, but otherwise, just didn't understand the game yet, sorry for this!! I tried to watch some games on cable TV but just couldn't stand so much watching full time game.
And finally, tell me, which game is most popular to you americans, football or baseball??
