Never before have I been interested in watching soccer. I simply do not enjoy the sport. But that has changed a bit now the World Cup is here. I have found myself scurrying home to catch the England vs. USA game last weekend, listening on the radio to the Americans take on the Slovenians yesterday, and looking forward to the next match for the red, white, and blue.
But the coolest part of this World Cup has been hanging with Parker watching the African teams and rooting like heck for them to win. We were pulling hard today for Samuel Eto'o and his Cameroonian comrades. Last weekend we were watching from the edge of our seats as Ghana took the pitch.
Here's our big man taking in the action while wearing his Ethiopia headband and wristband. You know, just in case he breaks out into a sweat.
