As I type this, there is less than a half-hour to...
THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD CUP!
As I plan to watch nearly all of this on Univision, I'm watching a hysterical set of commercials catered specifically to the event as well. I'm particularly impressed that the anthem of the event happens to be in at least five languages that I could determine.
And my son? He is napping right now.
In a half hour, let me tell you, he won't be. Naps will wait. Food shopping will wait. Academic work will wait.
Germany vs. Costa Rica. If you're reading out there, Stefan -- I fear that once again I'm rooting against you. (As for the second match, Poland vs. Ecuador? Well, given that my son is at least part Polish, I'm going to have to go against the Latins this time...)
