I admit it – I have not been ‘into’ the World Cup. I know “most popular sport in the world”, etc, etc but for some reason I just had trouble getting into it. I was actually in London last week and was able to see some of the games and found most of them boring. (I do understand the irony of the that statement coming from a baseball fan).
That said, I did watch the final US match and was able to witness Landon Donovan’s goal. This video captures the world reaction to the goal and still gives me goosebumps.
