Whoa, let me tell you, I'm not a fanatic of Soccer (or as it is known around the world, futbol), but World Cup Fever is starting to set in. I woke up extra early just to watch the Germans beat those Koreans. The Germans won 1-0 (or, the more correct "soccer" notation would be 1:0). Now, this score might sound extremely boring, but let me tell you, the game wasn't. Well, maybe just a little.
Here in Miami, almost the entire population watches these Soccer matches. I mean, even my school used to shut down during these games. The live games used to begin at around 7:30 AM, which is just around the time school started. Quite a few came too school late, while other skipped school altogether. Those who couldn't stand to miss school, came and watched the match during class. It seemed as if every classroom in school had the game turned on. There was no teaching, and no learning, as usual. We even kept the game on during Final Exams. In the middle of solving a math problem, you would hear students scream out "GOAL!" and you would join in their celebration.
Well, although it might be a little too late for me, seeing as how these were the semifinals, and the Finals are this Saturday, World Cup Fever has definitely set in.
