My wife just informed me that a nearby cafe’ will be showing the World Cup games “live” in their beer garden, beginning 20 Nov. And because Qatar is playing the games early in the morning, that will actually work for us here in Hawai’i.
In my family, World Cup is right up there with Eurovision Song Contest as viewing that we can all agree on.
My eldest daughter is such a Germany fan that it is hard to watch her watching a game; she gets so emotionally wrapped up in it. Go Deutschland!
Ha, then it might be easier to watch that in a cafe, pub, bar… in Hawaii than in Germany cause many „Sky“-Bars and pubs, as well as a lot of others, here prefer to boycott that and to show an alternative program, stand up comedy, honky-tonk nights…instead. Also Weihnachtsmärkte are going to open soon, if not already done, so not too few will rather puke Bratwurst and glogg over their shoes than beer into their Wuwuzelas.
Oh, well. It’s still the beautiful game. The Germans had an exciting exit match against Costa Rica, which they won. Now we are rooting for underdog Japan, who will also —no doubt— go down in flames. But the games are fun to watch, the upsets are amazing, and some of the pass-and-score shots are magnificent. However, I agree that the corruption and human rights abuses make FIFA look like a joke and a criminal operation.
