I should be studying. Really, I should. I even have my lessons right next to me in front of the television, and instead, I'm watching England/USA. What can I say, the match is just so much more interesting than France/Uruguay yesterday. I guess that's the advantage of supporting two teams: you can choose one or the other depending on whose doing best!

As you might have guessed with the beginning of this post, I have exams very soon, so I'm not very active on LJ. (Not that I'm ever). I'll try to do better in two weeks, when they're all over.

To finish this super short post, happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] atalanta84!

Soccer is always better than homework. XD Well, unless you're playing and you completely suck, in which case maybe homework is more doable. XD

I haven't played soccer in the longest time. I used to like it, even though I was no good. I mean, nobody ever told me (and I realized well over eighteen) that you're supposed to kick the ball with the side of your foot…

I only played it in school when I was required to. It was a good team sport, but I really sucked at kicking it in the right direction, lol. The side of the foot, what a valuable lesson. XD

Yeah, I felt so disappointed when I learned that tip so late. Of course, my father never played soccer so he couldn't know, but when I was in school (granted, it was primary school), a teacher could have told me!

Lol, even though my teacher told us how to kick the soccer ball, I'd never aim right. I think I'm just challenged when it comes to coordination, although I'd like to think I'm a good dancer. XD

Ah, I've never been particularly interested in soccer. Though it's definitely better than homework :D

Anyway, good luck with your exams!

I'm the worst soccer fan ever, really. I only get interested during the world cup, and I love to criticize the French team whenever they're in trouble (and I cheer for them when they've scored).

I am in the same boat I should be doing dissertation research and studying but I am currently watching Italy vs Paraguay on the tivo because I was running errands while it was on live. Watched England-USA on Saturday, was angst ridden because I feel I should cheer for the USA as an American, but the MLS is terrible so I watch Premier League and Serie A during the regular season and am therefore more invested in the players from the England team. Fortunately they shouldn't have to play each other again and I could be happy with a 1-1 draw.

Good luck with exams.

Wow, I'm impressed with your dedication. I don't think I've ever watched a Premier League match. I only (and very sporadically) watch the international competitions.

Good luck too with your dissertation!

My roommate is a huge Liverpool FC fan and even bigger fan of Michael Owen who is now at Man United, got into it while she was doing a study abroad year in York, so we watch. Manchester United is playing an exhibition match against the Kansas City team here in the states the end of July and I think we are going, not that I really have time to be giving up an entire weekend like that, but likely will.
