World Cup in the rear view mirror

I’m an instant replay futebol fan.

For the past week our television has been tuned to all things World Cup. Luiz is watching every game (and switching between channels when two games are being played simultaneously). Me, on the other hand, I’m in the office developing lesson plans, correcting compositions, or surfing the web for an easier pot sticker recipe (or looking at another online poll identifying the cutest World Cup player).

But if Luiz and the television start screaming “gooooooooooooooooal!" I return to the living room to watch the goal on instant replay.

I do watch the entire game when it is Brazil playing, but then – there is no other choice. It is inconceivable to be elsewhere, and everyone lets me know that!

[Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal keeps winning "Cutest" competitions.]

Hahaha, I love it. You've actually invented the term for the way I watch soccer as well! Don't get me started on 'having' to watch the Brazil games. I mean, what else ya gon' do?
