World Cup: Expats cheer more

I confess that I do not follow “football”. Luckily for me, that’s not a cultural offence here in India!

Nevertheless, I am thrilled by the USA [first round] victory in the World Cup!!! And the “6th fastest” goal in World Cup history. I’m pretty sure I am more enthusiastic about this as an Expat than I would be at home in New York. Something about being a foreigner makes one try to find associations with & connections to “home” in any way possible. Even non-soccer fans celebrating victory for a game they didn’t watch in a tournament format they understand only loosely.

Go Team U-S-A! Fingers crossed for round two!!
