Is it just me or people are so hyped because of the world cup? Whatís so special about it anyway? I mean I understand itís a 4-year thing and that itís a global event but if you think about it, itís still just football. I met these Colombian women on the local pub. They asked me why I wasnít cheering for Russia (they were playing that time) like the rest. I answered honestly that Iím not really into the game and they looked at me like I grew two heads. Seriously, why so giddy about it? Please can somebody explain this to me. Also, I donít even know why they are asking me about supporting ďRussiaĒ Ö I am white, but I donít think I look Russian at all. (?)
