The World Cup has started. Yay? or who cares I guess because I’m not a soccer football fan. I don’t care for waking up early to watch games, or hanging a flag from the car, or continuing my hockey-habit of watching CBC. The World Cup is so big that even work is kind of endorsing it! Work is streaming the games off their servers so you can watch it on your computer while you work. How is that possible? they’re basically expecting that people watch football for half the day!

I also heard that the World Cup is the largest sporting event in the world. My first reaction was no way – it can’t beat the Olympics. But then I guess it could be true. The Olympics don’t really appeal to countries who aren’t participating (such as Caribbean countries in the Winter Olympics, Norway in the Summer Olympics, or Africa in either). Whereas, the World Cup has participants from every continent.
