  • The World Cup's Here - are You Excited???

    Every ten minutes it seems on the Disney-owned ESPN "family" of networks, I am reminded about how excited I am supposed to be, now that the World Cup is underway.

    Any connection to the fact that Disney's ABC and ESPN have American rights to show the games? Naaah.

    Now I will put my cynicism aside for now, and realize how important this event is for many people, even here in the US. Saturday in Johannesburg, South Africa, the USA plays England, in a game we apparently have a halfway decent chance to win (since Beckham and some of their other key players are hurt).

    Anyway, these games will be going on for the next several weeks, with viewing events I'm told planned for both Southern California ESPN Zones among many other restaurants in SoCal and elsewhere.

    Are you ready, for some of what the rest of the world calls football?
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
