Apologies for taking too long to update, but I had to get Apple Technical Support to crack open my I-Phone so I can recover my notes from the previous matches. I have a new phone now, but the latest match I will be covering will be the Germany/Sweden one (and yes I know the defending champs are eliminated).
I didn’t see Putin during this match, but I did get to see another Russian slaughter. I finished up a spreadsheet and later caught the tail end of this contest to reward myself. This cute Asian girl named Nhi comes over and I explain to her how group play and the World Cup tournament work. Maybe later on I could ask her for a drink at a nearby pub (wink, wink). However, getting drunk at 7 AM is a sign you have an alcohol problem so no dice there (and office romance is highly discouraged.
I meet with Guy a colleague from England and he talks a bit about his national team’s 2-1 victory over Tunisia. It’s not as good of a result as he’d like but he’ll take it. I guess this is supposed to be the national team us Americans root for since we did used to be their colony and might be one of our closest allies (for now at least).
