The FIFA World Cup is equivalent to the NBA Playoffs. Boys, and girls, gather around to drink a couple brews and yell at TV screens every time a goal is made. Individuals pick a team, sticking with it only ’til it’s elimination from the Cup. Those who don’t quite follow soccer, or should I say fútbol, typically root for the home team; American’s will stick with USA and Columbians with Columbia – you get my drift.
You’d be surprised at the number of people who actually do follow fútbol and I’m not just talking about a generic “Let’s go (insert team name here)” with that being the only thing ever mentioned in regards to the Cup. I, personally, don’t follow the Cup. I don’t keep up with the tournaments and have no idea by how much Ecuador lost the other day. Hell, I didn’t even send a tweet out, but these celebrities did.
Snoop is #teamSpain. Do your research kids.
