ABC Wednesday - W is for World Cup





My little witch is enjoying his first World Cup - as you must notice, Brazilians are nuts about soccer. Well, actually this is his second Cup, but at the first one he was only three, and really didn't enjoy it. Last Sunday we went to my sister's and watched Brazil x Ivory Coast playing at my brother in law's cousin's right next door.




What Lucas loved more than the game was the complete drumset they have, since their daughter's bf has a rock band and rehearses there. So every time my team scored a goal, he would run and play loud while everybody was celebrting - "almost" a John Boham...





He's having lots of fun at each game, cheering, whistling and making noise with our friends... I bet he'll remember this Cup when he grows up...



Here are my sister and me (I always wear the same tee and sweater on all the games, I'm a very supertitious witch when my team is playing) right after the end of the game, when I had a good reason to smile, with our victory over the violent Ivory Coast team. Now we need to cross fingers for Friday game to be as good as this one so we stay in the Cup.

PERFECT post for W! I wish that the US was as dedicated to soccer as Brazil and countries in South America and Europe and other parts of the world. I've been watching more that the men in my life...go figure! I haven't been very pleased with many of the penalty calls in many of the games. The referees seem to abide by some of their own rules on occasion. Looks like Brazil has a worth opponent in the Netherlands. Go USA!!

Here in my country almost everybody is infected by the World Cup bug too. Everywhere houses are decorated with orange vanes. The baker has orange cakes and cookies and the greengrocer sells orange vegetables like carrots. Everywhere you hear the sounds of the fufu zelas. You will understand by now that orange is the national colour of the Dutch, as our Queen belongs to the Royal House of Orange. I don't watch football/soccer but it's a great means to keep everybody at home.

This period can't be the worst for Brazilians!

The Americans will watch only as long as they're in it, I suspect.

ROG, ABC Wednesday team

It looks like you had so much fun, Nydia :-) Lucas looks so cute in his team colours - my son was sporting the England shirt yesterday. Maybe we'll meet Brazil in the final!

Love and blessings
