I love events that bring people together. The Olympics, football games (especially around here…O-H!), and even royal weddings extend a magic connection to people who may not otherwise conspire.
The FIFA World Cup is no different.
My family enjoys soccer, but we aren’t die hard fans. My kids love to play, but more in the relaxed, backyard kind of games (although our youngest does want to play on a team this fall). But, if the USA team is playing in a game, we’ll pay attention…along with the rest of the world.
We watched the game, and I followed along on Twitter and Facebook. The boys were chanting “USA! USA!” while bouncing around the living room. It was nice to have something that we could all enjoy together.
We may not be the biggest soccer fans, but we join everyone else in cheering on our team. We believe.
