The Footie, redux

So I watched a football match, in full, for the first time. This was the Italy/Ghana match, which ang_grrr describes using phrases like "what a game to start with!"

It was an interesting exercise. I can't say that I became excited at any point, but on the other hand I didn't find it dull. I was watching this match because it's the first one involving one of my sweepstake teams that I've actually been free for. The next one I'll be able to watch is the second outing for Trinidad and Tobago, which is this Thursday afternoon.

One of the factors in my cool reaction to this match may have been that the Stepson didn't have a particularly keen interest in whether or not Italy won. I understand that he has a rather stronger view about the team that TnT will be playing on Thursday, so that might lend the game a bit of an edge. We'll see.
