Default My Wife: Brasileira Soccer Hooligan

For the last two weeks I have had to put up with Betty recording or watching every Brasil soccer match in the World Cup. To make it worse she has to watch them in Spanish or Portuguese.

Every time there is a goal for Brasil she is up jumping around and singing the Brasil national anthem or some other song. If there is a goal against Brasil she's swearing like a fish woman. (Luckily there hasn't been too many.)

I think I'll buy her a pair of Doc Martin's and a poster of Ronaldo.



Take care,
Mike

I am not a soccer fan. I HAD to play it in junior high school and was thankful I did not have to play it in senior high school. My son played one year in 1978 then he discovered real football . I can understand the game since I did play it, but to this day, I can not be a fan of it. :|

I am not a soccer fan, either, but I can relate to Betty's reactions. I was the same way when the Lakers were in their championship games. Boy, it looks like that won't happen again soon! Hope Betty's team has better fortune.

I work with alot of people that are interested in various teams so it's been fun! Today Spain lost so my supervisor was not too happy. One of the girls is cheering for Argentina, another one France and then there's the German fans! Reminds me of my days at VW where the TV in the lobby was always turned to soccer!

I don't mind, hard not to get caught up in it actually!

I am German and having 2 german stations over here on TV I catch a lot of the soccer fever. My guess is it will be either brazil, germany or england<the winning team>. I find it kind of neat how the german people get together and party and show unity. I wish i could be in Germany but it isn't to be .
