Watching some of yesterday's games that I had recorded. Won't say anything about the games just in case anyone doesn't want to know. If I have a game recorded I don't like to know the score till I watch it.
I tried to watch as much as I could this weekend but there was a pretty bad storm that knocked Lara's cable out till just before the first game of the day was over. Luckily, I was able to catch 2 of the three games. =D Granted, none of the games I caught really interested me that much, but it was something!
I started watching the World Cup since it was in Germany in 2006. I was on summer break from college so I made a point of watching EVERY. SINGLE. GAME.
Even when we were getting the carpet shampooed, I think I made myself an island on the couch and fell in love with Italy as the guy doing the rug commented on the game in a Polish accent.
When they had the games playing at the same time, I recorded one so that I could watch it later.
I'd always been a fan of European football but this sealed its place in my heart and made it so that I'd never miss the World Cup again.
I was keeping up pretty well with watching every game in the beginning for THIS World Cup, but since I've got a 40 hour work week, that's just not possible. I've been recording the games but there's just not enough time.
Italy was so amazing. When they played, I couldn't take my eyes off of them. (I have to make the observation that they aren't exactly doing their best this time around....hope that didn't spoil anything for anyone.)
I understand why a lot of people think it's a boring game. It is not for the impatient, and, let's face it, who really is in today's day and age?
I'm watching the Brazil/Ivory Coast game now. Gotta go! I love me some Brazil! XD
