Football Fever

Yep I have football (or should I say soccer) fever. The world cup has started and although I am not that into football I am very excited that Trinidad & Tobago are playing in their very first World Cup. They had their first match yesterday against Sweden and they completed proved everyone wrong and did a great job ending the game in a 0-0draw (and with only 10 players for the majority of the second half). All the commentators were surprised but the Trinidadians in the stands were ecstatic and I am sure all West Indians were proud. So no matter what happens from here I know that they Trinidadian team can return home after the World Cup with their heads held high for doing such a great job. And who knows – they could go on to win the whole thing. Hey a girl can have dreams and hopes.
