You may have guessed by now that I have been following the World Cup matches closely. Somewhere along the way I got hooked on watching the World Cup. America has dropped by the wayside, too early in my opinion given their talents. Today is the big game between Germany and Argentina. The weather has been quite hot by German standards, breaking 35 degrees Celsius the last couple of days and headed there again today. That's 95 degrees Fahrenheit by my metric calculator WITH NO AIR CONDITIONING. Needless to say, I'm not going to public viewing today. A couple of friends are coming over for coffee, cake and soccer viewing.
