Football, Soccer...Fútbol

What happens when an American family catches soccer fever...perdón, fútbol?

Last week, Germany and Argentina faced-off in what is one of the most important events in the world: the final game for the Soccer World Cup.

Never before has this championship been followed in the US as it was this year. The tournament lasted for 6 weeks. I was traveling with my family and everywhere we went there was an excitment regarding how someone’s favorite team was going to perform. It filled the bus from New Jersey, in the Metro in New York, in the Pub in Georgetown, even in the US Congressional tunnel where someone was listening the game or watching it while taking a lunch break. For the final game, my American family and I were primed to cheer for Argentina. Four hours before the game we were on our way to a British pub downtown Minneapolis…with dreams of a win.
