As I am sitting here waiting for the second half of the US and Algeria game, I realized how much I have come to love soccer.
A year ago, I couldn’t have cared less. But after watching the games during the year between different clubs from both in the US and abroad, I came to fall in love with it. I know personally I have no talent in the sport, but watching a soccer match is one of the most entertaining and fun experiences, whether its there in the stadium or at home. You can hear a pin drop when a shot is taken at the goal. And when a goal is made, the eruption of cheering and applause is deafening. And the best part is, I am definitely not alone in my love of this. All across the world, millions if not billions are viewing it and are all part of this wonderful experience. What makes this aspect even better is that so many people here at W&M are watching the same games. My colleagues and I are watching it together (as we speak) and enjoying every minute of it.
This is by far one of the greatest athletic events in the world.
