It’s been many moons since I was involved in watching any football, but the mere thought brings back memories of school, watching games, the gentle jibes and trading of football cards. It was quite a polarised situation in Malta, with most fans split between supporting England or Italy. Then there was the Brazil faction, where I used to sit; and a smattering of people siding with the more esoteric teams.
It was with interest that I noticed that USA are in World Cup 2010. Not too sure how they’ll be doing. I’ve checked the World Cup odds and they’re down at 66/1 which aren’t good odds at all. Their first match is against England, so they may even get unstuck in the first round. Going back on my memories, I don’t seem to recall anyone siding with USA in the World Cup; there were more than enough teams to choose from and USA never seemed to have a good track record when it comes to football (or soccer as they might call it)
Anyway, times have changed, so I’m really not sure how much football I’ll be watching any time soon, but then the World Cup is the World Cup; and I do have been in a number of companies where, if England have a match, all the work comes to a stop so people can catch up on what’s going on. It’s in South Africa this year; so I don’t know if the matches will be played during the work day. We’ll see. In the meantime, I still haven’t decided who I’m going to be betting on.
