– First a quick exchange between my daughters.
Youngest: ‘Wouldn’t it be great if you were the queen of soccer?’
Eldest: ‘No, way! If I was the queen everyone would be paying attention to me, and then none of my teammates would get the attention that they deserve.’
I think she is being taught sports the right way.
– Yesterday was a first in my house, as my parents and one of my sisters came over to watch a soccer match. Never would have seen that happening in the past, but I guess the World Cup does a tremendous job in bringing that out of families.
Given the fact that they have no real concept of the rules, they did a great job of asking questions at the right time and did seem to genuinely enjoy the match.
The draw was a killer, but it is great that the U.S. controls their own destiny for moving to the next round. I will be stunned if the match with Germany is anything but a draw. There is absolutely nothing that either of the teams has to play for and should just focus on making sure that no one gets hurt.
– Took the girls to see How to Train Your Dragon 2 on Saturday and we all loved it. Not to give anything away, but there were plenty of smiles, laughs, and tears from the girls. Definitely worth the price of admission.
– I’ll have some post E3 notes coming up either later today or tomorrow (hard to believe the week went by without posting anything… but things have been crazy.)
