But the truth is that there was something that really really began to grind my gears as the Cup went on.
Don’t get me wrong, I actually got quite into the spirit of the whole thing (not bad for a guy from a country in which “soccer” is far down the list in terms of national support levels) and really enjoyed the getting along to the local pub to catch as many games as I could.
