It's Confederations Cup time here in South Africa, and Dan and I decided to take the kids to the USA/Brazil game, because if you can watch one of the best soccer teams in the world beat the pants off your home country's team for less than the cost of going to the movies, why not?
I don't know why, but South Africa is crazy about the Brazilian team, which was all the more reason to go and be among the few USA supporters, in our opinion. On our way into the stadium, we saw a few other USA fans and asked if we could take our picture with them (who else would be wearing red, white and blue, and carrying a life-size cardboard cutout of Barack Obama??) .
Sometimes the most random moments in life are the most memorable. ("Hey, honey? Remember that time you had your picture taken with a cardboard cutout of Obama at the rugby stadium in Pretoria? Those were the good old days..." "Yes, dear, but if the USA had just scored one goal - ONE GOAL - it would have been even better.")
