Lets Talk Blog. Passion. Love. Heartache. Rejoice. Relief. Celebration. Enjoyment. All of these emotions all will be expressed this month in the 19th FIFA World Cup.
But what is this FIFA World Cup that has been talked about so much? Well, to sum it all up (if you’ve been living under a rock), it is a global soccer tournament of 32
nations all vying for the most prestigous item of all, the FIFA World Cup Trophy. It is something more than just a trophy however, it is to be declared the best in the world!
This summer the FIFA World Cup tournament will be held in Brazil in 12 cities. There’s a 1st round stage that is round robin, followed by the knocket stages for the nations that have survived until there is only standing. Brazil currently leads all countries with 5 championships, followed by Italy with 4, Germany with 3, Argentina and Uruguay with 2, England, France, and Spain with 1.
What I find so incredibly special about this tournament is that no matter what race, sex, religion, it brings people all together and share the emotions. This year’s tournament will be watched by billions of people all over the world. No wonder why it is the most popular sport on the planet. The euphoria will be in the air when we kick-off June 12th
During this month soccer bars, restaurants, living rooms, parks, and work places (if you got a cool boss) will be filled with fanatics, eyes glued to televisions, monitors, or smart phones. One of my favorite places to be during this occasion is at Wolff’s Biergarten in Albany where some of the die hard fans will watch all the emotion and passion, not to mention some of the finest European beer in the Capital Region. You’ll see me there on Saturday crying out the Italian National Anthem when the Italians face the Brits in their opening match.
So join me and come along on this journey we all call the FIFA World Cup. As the slogan says for this year’s tournament, All In One Rhythm!
