Duniya *GOAL* Hai ;)

I HAD to blog on this separately. Post Superman, B and I went to The Park to eat something. And as soon as we entered, the football fever was completely in the air. Though we were sitting slightly away from the TV, we decided to move closer to a screen and watch what was happening. And Brazil lost. Generally we both were getting a hang of the game, but each time a goal was not made, especially by Brazil, there were a lot of beeped out words. People lighted up, their cigarettes of course, made bets. Da da-da da-da. And minutes before the match was over and it was proclaimed that France won, there were so many who got up and exited, swearing, almost breaking tables. Wow! This was the first ever football match I watched completely, and I liked what I saw. But frankly, after having heard so much about Brazil and their star players, esp Ronaldo, for me it was no show.
And am gonna follow the world cup. Apparently this will be the first All European final four since 1982. As of now I am supporting Germany. Why? Because I know the language ... (*clapping my hands and silly giggle*)

Yup Brazil, did'nt live up to its expectation. I support France for the same reason as yours(because I know the language) :)

Hmm...Brazil..all Hype in the end.! I liked the way the French team played.

One team that I don't want to see in the final is ITALY...IMHO ..they are cheaters.!! I still can't forget that Penalty Kick they got ..against Australia..!!

And finally..a world of caution ...you wrote " People lighted up, their cigarettes of course, made bets....."

People ( me too while in India)..never bothered about second-hand smoke. It is really bad, per what I read/hear and see on news Media. So, watch out when you go to such places where IDIOTS smoke without worrying that the smoke the non-smoker breathes ..is actually something that the smoker let out from his lungs!

Have fun watching Germany ! I like the way they are playing..and the host..IMHO deserves the CUP
