Heading to Europe…

Greetings fellow bloggers. In the coming weeks I will be visiting the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg for leisure and hope to bring you all some local flavor from the World Cup. I cant promise much more than that, but certainly hope to entertain you with stories of rowdy pubs and the orange army of fans I am sure to run into.

I was invited to contribute to this blog and hope to do so with flair. I have coached, refereed, and of course played soccer for more than 20 years. I understand the off-sides rule and can teach you. I have faced angry parents and piss-poor officials and can tell you all that SOCCER is still the best youth sport in America.

No doubt I will be rooting for the US on Saturday, and fully expect there to be some huge repercussion should the team not play to its “potential.”

-Enjoy

    Look forward to your reporting from the scene. I am here in England and we can sniff the cup but it will be a good study to get some other views.

    This should be good. We will have some reporting from an area where Football rules the roost so to speak.

    I will be in Amsterdam, Edinburgh, Brugge, Brussels, and Luxembourg.

    For part of my trip, I will be joined by a British friend of mine. In his company, I will be supporting the Flag of St. George.

    I have been enjoying matches in different venues in San Francisco – great atmosphere everywhere. I’ve seen lots of national team colors of participating nations. Casual fans are taking interest and I’ve talked players, teams, and tactics with many interested listeners.

    I was fortunate to be invited to watch the opening match with members of the German American Chamber of Commerce at a private party at Gordon Bierch Brewery. It is somewhat ironic that we got to drink better beer than the fans at the stadium in Germany!

    I sat with a black woman and a man from India (I am a white male) at a party thrown by Germans (and German Americans). World Cup indeed!

    What’s happening in your part of the World?

    I’m looking forward to the European opinion of their teams at the World Cup. I’m sure they’re hyper-critical of every miniscule move they make.

    Have a great trip and take lots of pics.

    Why hasn’t Arena given Kenny Cooper a look? He’s a guy who could have helped us………

    Have a good trip!
