ARGENTINA! ARGENTINA! ARGENTINA!!!!
If you are a fan of the 44 series you know that Lionel Messi is Abby's absolute favorite soccer player. There's a reason for this, of course :) Besides being amazing and magical, he also happens to be my favorite soccer player. And being that I've been an Argentina soccer fan for over 20 years, words can't express my happiness over yesterday's win against Belgium to make it into the semi finals.
It's been an incredible World Cup, playing out on the stage like an elaborate opera, full of passion, heartbreak, spirit, exhileration, madness, and excitement. As a viewer, I've gone through every emotion possible while watching these athletes battle it out. It's been quite the ride. A hell of an inspiring, nerve-racking, teeth-clenching ride. As Mr. LittleJeans would say, "Best show ever, man."
Can you tell what I've been up to the last few weeks?
Hope you all had a fun and relaxing 4th. Here in town, the Pilot Butte fireworks show was spectacular! Way to go, Bend!!
