The FIFA Women’s World Cup starts today. It’s in GERMANY this year and we’re missing the entire thing because it takes place during the 3 weeks we’re in the States. I think it would have been cool to watch it, but I don’t really want to spend my short time in the US watching soccer. I’ve got too many friends and family to visit as much as I can!
This past Friday, even the Hamburg metro announced it on the billboards:
“Only 2 days left until the Women’s World Cup 2011”
And this other ad I saw last week was also pretty funny:
“Boys, we’ll avenge you!”
It’s a reference to the fact that Germany’s men’s national team did so well but didn’t get the win in the end. I actually didn’t get it at first until I realized that the World Cup was coming up.
Is anyone actually planning on watching it?
