“The best way to cheer yourself is to try to cheer someone else up.”

World Soccer ….who can be deprived of this sports :D…yes but I do know some of my friends who hate the word also :D….! Yes its all about liking the sport and enjoying it!

“Sports do not build character. They reveal it.”

I am a deadly fan of this…whenever World Cup takes place no matter which country I always remember my days in Canada. We used to have this huge TV in our lunch room and we often used to go for water or some excuse and would wait there to see those…gosh!!!

“These things I warmly wish for you Someone to love, some work to do, A bit o' sun, a bit o' cheer, And a guardian angel always near”
Now, as I read the updates and the scores…its driving me nuts…that I am not there to watch …! I remember when there was this soccer match in Dublin and everyone suggested to get out of the city ASAP…as there are so much violence involved as the fans gets cheering there team…and I think more than teams it’s the fans who take things seriously!

“It would be nice to have someone to cheer for. The camaraderie of a team, I think, would be nice. Just someone to hang out with.”

Today one of my best friend asked me whom I am cheering…:D…good question….first I said I am hardly getting moments to spend on that one to see due to project load however when I updated about Germany winning the match…she said yeah…I think they are the host so they should…and I reacted quickly..>WHY?
“It's why we play the game. Anything is possible, anything can happen, and teams will prove that again...”

No hard feelings…for me the most challenging and interesting match would be where two tough teams comes against eachother…as that would be the best entertainment and best moments to break records and the moment of the birth of stars :D…!

“A champion is someone who does not settle for that day's practice, that day's competition, that day's performance. They are always striving to be better. They don't live in the past.”


All the best to all the teams…:)

Soccer fever!! That's right girl...I am so into soccer but I am surprised not many of my friends are...I am cheering for Brazil all the way...but as you said, definitely watching the two strongest teams compete would be a grand history moment:D

So you didn't answer your question..who are you cheering for?

Hey,
Am not really a football fan..am more a cricket person!!
But the fever is almost getting to me too in HK!
Especially when Hubby is willing to stay up late nights and go to pubs just to watch the match!

Manish said...

Germany reached the finals but they were never the second best team in the last world cup.
there was lot of hype abt England this time but they gave lacklusture display against Paraguve.
I completely agree with u DON, like u I have no particular fav. The team which will give me most exciting monents will be my fav on that day.
And so far only one match was really exciting for me.The way Trinidad defended with 10 men against highly rank sweeden was worth watching and there goalkeeper Shaka made those grt 6 saves...

I love Munich said...

GREAT post .. I like it a lot! Yes, I AM a soccer-fan and most certainly I support the German team, my team! I liked your interfering with the suggestion because they are the host, they should win though! NOT AT ALL! The BEST should win .. if Germany or not! (of course I would LOVE it a LOT though ... ha-ha!!)

Anand said...

In Fact even better way to cheer u up is to go and watch the match live!
Am going to germany to watch the match live this weekend!!!..yupiie!
