It came to an end today.......and we are happy with the results. Had Argentina won, it would have been so great for cousin Luke....thanks to Luke and Uncle Mike, Nic learned about Messi and it's cool to see Nic's increased interest in the sport. We're rooting for Germany cause Grandma Maria is a German citizen.
In the spirit of the game, Nic participated in the "world cup" tournament yesterday. As chance would have it, he got on Team Germany.
In the first round, Germany played Argentina. Nic's team won 5 - 1. But got eliminated in round 2 when Team Mexico kicked our butts. Team Mexico's fanclub was hard-core.....the parents chanted and sang Mexican songs!!!
Our neighborhood hosted a viewing of the finals. The crowd seemed to be 60% Germany, 40% Argentina fans.
