THE WORLD CUP
Earlier this summer FIFA's World Cup of Soccer was played in Brazil. For those of you who don't know the World Cup is pretty much the Olympics of soccer. The rest of the world always goes crazy when the games are played every four years. This year the only exception was the fans here in the United States. Our team did better than anticipated and the result was World Cup Fever here in the U.S. The United States advanced after great group play but came up short in their quest to win their first World Cup since 1930. The tournament was won by Germany.
