... or maybe not...
What a match yesterday – and when you are watching it on the Spanish channel, it is far more exciting than watching ESPN. NO offense, but unless they have an announcer from another country- the US guys just don’t have the passion that the Univision guys do. I think Tusa at Knitplosion really got the feel for yesterday’s match.
I have watched the world cup as religiously as possible before – but the first time (1990) – I was just sort of into it all – ’94? Well in the USA baby! So very into it – but I was wrapped up in getting ready for my year abroad in Austria – ’98? – High on vicodin! Just had surgery to have all my hardware taken out – and bouncing on the bed yelling at the French v Croatia match was not entirely unpleasant…2002? Cable turned off…long painful story – could only watch on ABC – luckily the US did really well so they aired a lot more games.
So this year – I swore up and down I would not miss a single match if I could help it! But here’s the thing – it is on during the day here – not late in the afternoon or the evening – so I fell like I am doing more of a World Cup Sewing Event as opposed to a World Cup Knitting Event – So I am beat when I get home – and that makes it hard to knit..
So this is my lame excuse as to why I am only this far on my sweater for Fritz:
I’ll send it off today and get the other two on their merry ways next week – one at a time is good – I have got until august 15th, after all.
