the 2014 world cup is about to begin!!!

i love the world cup.  i'm so freaking excited about it starting in a few days! i even joined a soccer team a few months ago and have been enjoying full field, 11 player games.   it has been so long since i played on full-size grass fields that i didnt realize how much i loved it.

definitely not a handball :)

there are two things i do not like about this world cup:

(1) the start times of matches when viewed in australia are 2 am, 5am, and 8am.   so much for sleep.  

(2) FIFA, the organizing body, is as about as corrupt as an organization can be.

let john oliver explain in his highly entertaining way...

Missed most of the world cup final live but just saw the winning goal.
The best part was the crowd shots - towards the end we saw 'speak no evil', then we got a shot of both 'hear no evil and 'see no evil'!
