(Good morning DT faithful. Thank you for your support of Daily Thunder. U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!)
Pretty much once every four years, we’re all allowed to care about soccer. I’ll be honest – I know little about it. I watched the 2006 World Cup fairly intently and got into the Confederations Cup because the US did well. I know the rules, but I’m hazy on most the big players, who’s good, who’s not and all the like. However, I’m PSYCHED about the United States’ game against England today. The World Cup may just be my very favorite sporting event there is. And that’s saying something because in general, I don’t enjoy soccer. But it’s the one sport that almost transcends itself and truly is bigger than a game. I got chills watching South Africa score the first goal of the tourney. Today it starts for my country and though the States don’t typically fare well, that doesn’t make me any less excited. And if you’re not pumped, this should get you prepared for battle.
