There are 32 countries participating in the World Cup — why does the U.S. have to play England in their first match? With three dual U.S.-U.K. citizens in my household, no one knows whom to root for. Some lines have been drawn: Paul and Josh have their competing t-shirts — Josh’s U.S. shirt supporting Landon Donovan, and Paul’s U.K. shirt for Wayne Rooney. Can family harmony prevail? Fortunately, two teams can go through from this group, so we’ll hope that both subjects of our fandom will move to the next round.
Soccer/football fans out there — I know you’ll be very busy for the next few weeks. Enjoy the matches!
