World Cup Update

On Tuesday, I figured out that I could stream World Cup games over the internet, what a concept, and so last night I watched a replay of France vs. Mexico with my son.

We could have watched Argentina beat up on South Korea, but there’s one advantage of watching games that have happened already: while the element of surprise is largely gone, you can something of the story of the game that can help you decide which game to watch.

In the case of France vs. Mexico, I was intrigued by the narrative of a team of star French players that can’t seem to play together as a team and have issue with their coach. Meanwhile, Mexico, a significant underdog, a third world country taking on a first world country, totally won my bleeding heart.
