Time: 6:49 AM. World Cup finals start any minute! I can’t believe I’m up. Ohh boy, are you excited??
Okay, now they’re over. It was mildly exciting. The crowd certainly wasn’t into it like I’ve seen in the games leading up to this one. Oh well. Now it’s light out, and I’m really tired. I guess I sleep some more.
I never thought I’d be saying this, but you’re crazy for staying up that late to watch that thing which no one cares about.
They estimated that 1.5 billion people were watching it worldwide. That’s 1 out of every 4 people on the planet were watching that match live. I imagine that’s more than any other sporting event, and it’s definitely a lot more than no one.
I actually took a nap from 5 to 6:30 AM.

Soccer is a Non-american sport, much like Rugby, cricket, and Australian Rules Football. We just don’t care. It’s mainly due to the lack of physical contact. Americans love a good physical sport. Soccer or Football as the Euros call it is appropriately named. It’s the non-american version of football. It’s just differences in the way we think. I played soccer as a little rug rat but soon grew into a better sport… hockey. Although hockey is even different depending on where it’s played. In America the rink is smaller and the game more physical. In Europe and Asia it’s larger and more finesse is involved. Again, American’s (this includes Canada but not Mexico) love physical contact. The rest of the world seems to like more finesse based sports.
