World Cup 2014

The games have finally begun. 

I have been looking forward to the World Cup since the day the Euro Cup ended. It's difficult describing how proud I am when I see my country's best men out on the field, trying their damn hardest to get the ball in. 

I get anxious, sweaty, knots in my stomach and when I see an amazing pass, goosebumps. 

I will admit I am a bit of a 'bandwagon' soccer watcher, when it's any other cup it doesn't nearly excite me as much as when countries go head to head. But isn't it more fun to watch our countries fight to see who's number one?  I think it's unbelievably amazing to see how united we get when those 90 minutes are on the screen, when our team wins and even when our team loses.  

Remember when Canada played the United States back at the Vancouver Winter Olympics? When everyone was at the edge of their seats, needing and praying for them to score and remember when Canada won? Everyone took it to the streets and celebrated. That is the BEST way I can describe how I feel about the World Cup. The best part though, is that we feel that exact excitement during every single game our team plays and man when we win it's the best damn thing in the world. Even if it's in the first round! ;) 

So, to all my fellow soccer lovers, my bandwagon watchers and my lovely Portuguese.  I wish your teams all the best... But I really hope Portugal kicks all of your asses!
