Cleaning up some loose ends

Thoughts from the past few weeks.

People who complain about the diving in soccer somehow never complain about catchers framing pitches to try to call from an umpire.

Despite high ratings, people don't care about soccer. They're looking for a reason to show national pride.

Volunteering for a youth camp for a week is a great way to lose eight pounds. (Note: only applies if there is record-breaking heat and no air conditioning)

It doesn't seem like a year ago that we moved to Wilmington, but it's been good.

That said, the lack of college football here kills me from September to November.
Corollary: Tailgating in an apartment parking lot and then going inside to watch the game isn't quite the same.

The Nike soccer commercial (and even the shortened versions) is fantastic.

My wife can't wait for the World Cup finale, mostly because when it's over, it's the longest possible time before the next World Cup.

Spending a week without air conditioning and then hearing people complain about the heat while they sit inside a climate controlled room is a recipe for murder. 

Is the DVD Box Set available yet for the Inser/Mahut tennis match?

 Chuck E. Cheese is not a fun as I remembered it being. Then again, I was 12 the last time I was there.
