Summer is not usually my favorite time of year. Gone are the days of lazing by the pool and dreaming of a world without homework. Summer means the end of basketball, the conclusion of the hockey season and no football to speak of. This year was special because of the World Cup. I had no idea professional soccer was so exciting. I recorded the games during the day and watched them all when I got home from work. One of the most intriguing elements of the World Cup was the news stories covering the extra-curricular activities of wacky football fans all over the world. I’d hate to meet some of those guys in a dark alley when I was wearing the wrong colors.
