World Cup Update

Bradley's still on vacation (we can't wait to check out his tan!) so Nola Solomon is filling in. Hope you're all still as psyched about the World Cup as we are!

I am sure everyone witnessed the highway robbery that was the USA tie against Slovenia. I hope that ref prepared a bunker to hide out in until the drama blows over. I've already sent out a search team for him. The World Cup has taken an interesting turn and so has the way we watch it. With France eliminated, Portugal racking up seven goal leads, and Germany and Serbia battling to make it out of their brackets, no one is quite sure what to expect in the next round.

I decided to take a break from the raucous bar scene and watch the games from the comforts of my parents' couch. Half-asleep and eating a fresh fruit salad, I watched the 7:30AM games this past weekend. No one else was awake yet and in the quiet I was actually able to hear what the announcers were saying. The late morning and afternoon games were family affairs. We prepared a grilled chicken and avocado salad and settled into the TV room, fighting over the remote, the volume, and who was blocking whom.

Although the World Cup bar scene is hopping, many Americans prefer to watch the games from home, opting to tune in when it's convenient, and simply read the New York Times Sport Section the following morning for the details they missed. Does that make them any less obsessed than the rest of the world? I'd like to think no, except that most aren't willing to drop their lives for 90 plus minutes three times a day.

If you're watching the World Cup at home, try my new recipes and let me know what you think!

You might be able to hear the game more at home, but I think the vuvuzelas are more noticeable!
