Am I ever thankful that the World Cup is starting Friday. Being a Canadian who generally doesn’t care about football/soccer is fantastic because our country never gets in and therefore there’s soooooo much less angst (hello, I think I filled my angst for international tournaments quota up in January and February). And less angst means I get to enjoy it, and that means I’ll have something that’s not “OMFG I HATE HOCKEY RIGHT NOW” to say on here. Whoo…
So yeah… My policy is to always chose a bunch of teams to cheer for and hope that at least one makes it fairly deep in the tournament – and failing that, I’ll just pick more random people to cheer for. God, I love non-hockey international tournaments that don’t involve Canada! ANYWAY… this year I’ll probably cheer for….
Spain – ’cause I cheered for them at the Euro Cup. Although.. .if Torres isn’t playing, we might have a problem… :/
Argentina – ’cause Messi is awesome \o/
I’m thinking the Chicken (France’s national bird is a chicken. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it) needs someone on the other side of the pond to cheer for it. Even if I kinda poked a bit of fun at it at the hockey world championship….
And I’ll probably find some other random country to cheer for at some point during the tournament… we’ll see :D
