World Cup


The World Cup began June 9th in Germany. My family has been watching football (or what we call soccer here) since my childhood so there's a lot of interest in the household. Here's the complete schedule.

In the meantime, Church officials have something to say. A Vatican official denounces prostitution at the World Cup. Meantime, a Cardinal who is an avid soccer fan says that the World Cup should promote reconciliation among nations and respect for common moral principles.

those are some great links, I was talking about the world cup today. Who do you go for? I grew up with soccer too, my grandpa would get excited over the finals, he would go for Italy. I have to be loyal to Australia and go for them, but either way I am happy with which ever team wins!

We grew up with English football. So England's a favorite, also Italy and Brazil. I bet it's really exciting in Germany now! I'll be rooting for Australia too!

FOOTBALL!!! You are right, it is exciting in Germany at the moment. Everywhere you go its footie and screens and flags and happy people! I love it. Thought you would favour the US but in the case of Brazil and England you can be lucky! Enjoy the games
