Cricket fans, prepare yourself for the football World Cup juggernaut. I’m not a huge fan of the game (too much going back and forth). It always depresses me when the tournament rolls around and the whole world seems to lose its mind. Sure, the cricket world is a billion-plus strong, but it’s still relatively small.
Anyway, I’ll be heading off to a New York City bar this weekend to watch the USA v. England match. Why? Because I want to try and watch a sport in the company of others. I don’t get the chance to do it too much with cricket (since none of my American friends will oblige). Besides, football is boring enough that you need people around to keep you from falling asleep. (Bam! Zap!)
