Every 4 years you get a chance to shine and they still try to take it away from you.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup has come to an end and it was a good one. Countries were watching as their fellow countrymen battled for worldwide bragging rights. People that didn’t even know anything about Football Soccer were watching the matches. There was even a psychic octopus that was getting in on the act. Even Citizen Daddy was wearing a Kenyan soccer jersey at our family reunion. He told me that African’s in my hometown think that he is from Africa. I get that same response from Africans sometimes myself. Odd?!?!

Side Note: I hope the Republican’s don’t try to deport us because we are Americans!!

Even though many of us enjoyed the thrill of the games, you still had some haters. These are the same people that don’t consider soccer a real sport. They don’t think the players are real athletes and that no skill is required in kicking a ball. I’m not going to attempt to defend the players because I don’t need to. Soccer is a global sport that is played all over the world. The term “Soccer Mom’s” is used in every presidential election we have in the U.S. You can try to hate it but you can’t stop it. Soccer is everywhere!!! The haters need to get ready because in 2011they will be doing it again. Although this time, the women will be on deck!!!

I love soccer, no pads, no helmets, just a full out kicking sport. It's sad that Americans think American Football is so much better. Always like us Americans to want to be different. I cant wait till nest year to see how the teams of women fair.

Peace, Love and Chocolate

During the last World Cup I had a few Black British friends who were REALLY into it. So it was pretty easy for me to get into it as well. This year I lost my enthusiasm for it since I wasn't around anyone who was into it.

But I think I'll be more into the Women's World Cup. :-)
