Response to malaise (Original post)

56. I'll watch every game

Albeit most of them on tape. Currently I am 59 minutes into the Russia game at 2-0 in favor of Russia.

Once there are several games every day I'll fall multiple days behind.

I love the World Cup and was fortunate enough to have been in Europe twice while it was going on -- 1974 and 1990. Incredible atmosphere. I'll never forget watching the games in campgrounds on small televisions at night with hundreds of people on lawn chairs gathered around to watch.

There was stunned total silence during that campground setting in 1974 when East Germany upset Germany 1-0 in a preliminary game, although Germany went on to win the title. They picked up the lawn chairs and walked away. But with so little energy given the result they seemed incapable of doing anything else at the moment.
