Our delivery man this morning was grinning from ear to ear. No I didn't wear my shirt on backwards.
He: So Jesusa, who are you rooting for (with a thick Spanish accent)?
Me: What do you mean?
He: You know, soccer. World Cup is starting and Mexico is playing on Friday!
Me: "Oh," with a shamed look on my face. Well, I don't have a team.
He: Just choose Mexico and wake up early on Friday to watch the game.
When he left my lab I felt so disturbed, I immediately run to my computer and googled "World Cup." I was thinking to myself, "Gee, I was just warming up for the Lakers!" Not that I don't like soccer, I guess I just wasn't expose to it much with basketball, baseball, tennis and football as the main sports in my little world of sports. I know, being "sports challenged" is not a valid excuse.
