City World Cup Fever 2: Electric Boogaloo!
Regarding U.S.A. vs. Italy this past Saturday, I feel quite idiotic for having asserted we’d lose ignominiously when it turned out to not only be a tie but equally incompetently played on both sides. But: a FANTASTIC game! Action! Blood! Handsome Italian men grimacing! Three players red-carded and GONE! And my sportiest friend says unfounded, sweeping (and, even, completely wrong) assertions are what being a sports fan is all about (and he writes for ESPN). (He also reports that the first 18 World Cup matches broadcast on ESPN this year have garnered more than double the number of viewers as the 2002 World Cup. WORLD CUP FEVER, right here in the U.S.A.!) Tomorrow at the crack of dawn, a.k.a. 7 a.m.: U.S.A. vs. Ghana (LIVE at the George & Dragon!).
