I am not a fan of football, too violent for my taste. But I have been checking out the status of the matches from the Quarter finals stage of this years FIFA World Cup. I cannot watch them because it is too late for me by then and I was not sure if I will be able to watch the whole game either. But I decided that if Argentina makes it to the Finals, I will definitely watch the game. Honestly, even though I don’t know anything about the teams or their strengths or weaknesses, I was a little upset when Spain lost and thought that the finals would be between Brazil and Argentina. Now that Argentina is there, I am gonna watch the match, especially for Messi even if I have to set an alarm to get up in the middle of the night (or the next day morning) for the game. I hope it is worth the effort. Go Messi!
When we were in Barcelona, on the request of an acquaintance we got him a FC Barcelona T Shirt with the name Messi and number 10 written on it for almost 80 Euros from the Barcelona’s FC official shop. At that time, I thought he was crazy to buy a T Shirt with the name for that cost (apply the conversion rate and its a huge amount for a T Shirt) and that too from Barcelona. With the images and videos that I see during this World Cup, now I think he is just a kid and his action was very mellowed. All he wanted was a T Shirt.
Well, let me see how the final match goes. All I hope is that I don’t wake up my neighbors with my over enthusiasm that I usually have during these intense games. And if you are there, try not to sit too close to me. My punches can be a little painful.
