I’m holding my breath for Sunday’s final match for World Cup supremacy.
The match between Argentina and Germany should be a nail-biter.
Okay, I know. That makes three posts on the subject of the World Cup.
Really I’m not.
“Yes you are. Tell the truth,” Calvin says.
“Okay, I am.”
Here’s why: Argentina, besides being my birth country, needs a shot in the arm of inspiration and positive world attention.
It’s a country which has a long history of government corruption and mistreatment of its people. And yet, it keeps getting up and forging ahead in spite of its misfortunes and financial reversals.
Argentinians are tenacious people with indomitable spirits. They’re strong, passionate, and intelligent.
And they’re very good at soccer.
Here’s their moment of world attention and I’m cheering them on for an extraordinary finish.
Won’t you join me?
Calvin says, “Not me. I can’t wait for it to be over. Then you’re all mine again.”
