We’re Back!

ImageIt has been 1 year and 358 days since Lauren and I boarded our plane bound for Johannesburg.

Our futbol fanaticism has not waned.

On October 9, 2010, we watched the U.S. Men play to a 2-2 draw with Poland in Chicago’s Soldier Field along with 31,693 of our closest friends and one stupid, sweaty Polish man who tried to pick a fight with Lauren.

Fool.

Exactly one year ago today – June 7, 2011 – the U.S. Men finally traveled to us. At Ford Field in our beloved Detroit, the U.S. Men beat Canada 2-0. Image

And we were there to watch.

And to act foolish.

Obviously.

We’re still harboring dreams of traveling to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup. I will likely need to sell my liver on the black market to fund such an adventure. (Takers? Please contact me via email.)

In the meantime, we’re getting our futbol fix with a trip to Columbus* to see David Beckham and the Los Angeles Galaxy play against the Columbus Crew while considering a second trip to Columbus to see the U.S. Men play a qualifying match against Jamaica.

And hatching a friendly Euro 2012 bet.

ImageWinner gets dinner!
