It starts today. The 2010 World Cup.
Many stores in our city are covered in green and yellow. Flags, banners, work shirts, you name it. Brasil's colors are dominating every store.
We play on Tuesday against North Korea. Today's first game is South Africa vs. Mexico.
To say we are excited would be an understatement. Our boys have been counting down the days for a few weeks. Anderson's daily question has been, "how many more days until the Cup?"
Garrett and Anderson are taking God's word of "pray about everything" seriously as they ask God, in their daily prayers, to let Brasil win the World Cup.
If you don't know what's going on and want to have a crash course in teams, players, etc., then you can read an article I found called "The Idiot's guide to the Wold Cup." Click here to read it.
Even if you don't like soccer you need to watch the World Cup. Not only is it the biggest sporting event in the world but it's also a pretty incredible and exciting thing to watch.
