I just feel like this isn’t as big and expressed as any of the World cup. it’s like the one time that people want to acknowledge soccer in America. The gold cup was just held in the U.S., but if you don’t live in the cities they’re playing in, or are not a fan, you don’t really know about it. But as soon as Men’s World Cup comes around, everybody’s all gung-ho about soccer. we have just had the U-17 World cup, U-20 World Cup, The Gold Cup, Copa America, Champions League, etc., and the Women’s World cup now. I just think that it’s amazing that The only time Americans join in the celebration with the rest of the world, is when World cup comes around. And that’s quite sad. We can barely support our team, even when they’re in their own country.
“What is my perfect crime? I break into Tiffany’s at midnight. Do I go for the vault? No. I go for the chandelier; it’s priceless. As I’m taking it down, a woman catches me. She tells me to stop. It’s her father’s business. She’s Tiffany. I say no. We make love all night. In the morning the cops come and I escape in one of their uniforms. I tell her to meet me in Mexico but I go to Canada. I don’t trust her. Besides, I love the cold. Thirty years later I get a postcard. I have a son. And he’s the Chief of Police. This is where the story gets interesting: I tell Tiffany to meet me in Paris by the Trocadero. She’s been waiting for me all these years. She’s never taken another lover. I don’t care. I don’t show up. I go to Berlin. That’s where I stashed the chandelier.”—Dwight Schrute, The Office (via sethdoesmeth)
So I’m actually watching a pretty interesting game; USA vs Mexico. I didn’t think it would he so matched at this point. And now I want either team to win. I was hoping one would have been knocked out before the finals so I wouldn’t have to choose. I guess I’ll be happy with any outcome :D
