i remember at the last world cup...

i've always been into the world cup and make it a point to catch the key matches especially from the knockout stages. as each new world cup starts or concludes, i find myself thinking back on how time has just flown by since the last world cup 4 years ago and it seems like i knew almost just exactly what happened at that time. since the world cup has just concluded, i thought it appropriate to reminise on the last world cup fever in 2006...

the opening match in 2006 saw me sitting in the somewhat "sister bar" of cozy hole-in-the-wall bar watching it. that was where i ran into dj guy after not having seen him in a while and probably where things started again as we shared our first kiss (albeit a peck).

as the world cup continued on, i found myself in europe on vacation with my family, spending most of my time in france where i caught most of the matches. anyone who remembers the last world cup would have known that france went all the way to the finals so imagine the celebrations each time france won a game. it was an amazing atmosphere.

after the end of the final match, i was headed for london where i spent some time with my london guy friend. i didn't expect to spend half as much time with him. and i certainly didn't expect to wind up having half that amount of feeling that i wound up having for him. but nonetheless it was a fabulous time.

by comparison this world cup was far more sedate. i didn't share any first kisses, i didn't travel anywhere and i didn't wind up fancying anyone new. but i did spend my first world cup fever being attached, even if the alpha boy doesn't actually watch the matches...

i've never seen the world cup before but I saw this one now and I liked it, so much going on, stress and all that. I like the part were some guys exchange shirts at the end of a match and you get to really see them haha!

each world cup holds some kind of memory for me. this one would be the make-out sessions i got during the half times for the england-germany match and the germany-spain match ;) haha
