World Cup 2014!
Olé! Olé! Do you know which international sporting event is taking place this summer? It's the men's World Cup in Brazil! I prefer the women's World Cup, but this is awesome too! Do you play soccer/football? Like many kids watching the World Cup, I am thinking of learning to play. Of course, I had the same idea during the 2010 World Cup, so who knows if I'll actually do it!
The World Cup is a very, very big deal in my neighborhood. Since I live in New York City, there are families from all over the world. Everyone cheers for a particular country and all the kids trade stickers in their World Cup Panani sticker books! I was initially cheering for Russia, since I was born there. I am also cheering for the United States and France. Go USA! Allez les Bleus!
Did you notice my special tee? It features Fuleco, the armadillo mascot of the World Cup. You know what's also funny? The ball he is holding in the image on my tee looks really similar to my own soccer ball! I went down to our courtyard and practiced dribbling my ball until the super came out and told me to get off the grass!
Hurray for the World Cup! What do you think of Fuleco? Is he a cute mascot? Are you cheering on your home country? If not, who are you cheering for?
In this entry I'm wearing: white tee with Fuleco decal, American Girl 2006 soccer outfit.
