World Cup day, USA vs England! How exciting!

I mean not as exciting as being in Germany four years ago, but still exciting!

In Brooklyn, it looked like things were starting early at The Chip Shop and Flyods.

Happy South Korean fans were cheering outside at 10am this morning. My tailor and his wife are South Korean. There is a language barrier between us but they were thrilled to try to tell me about the game.

I saw a guy walking towards Floyds with an American flag shirt on, ala country western singer from 1992, but today it worked:-)

I will avoid trash talk for obvious reasons :-) But go USA!

Here's my only editorial comment...enough with the vuvuzela already!! How annoying was that in the background for 90 minutes.

I'm happy to report that DC seems to have become a much more soccer-friendly city since the last time I was here for a World Cup (2002). Rachel and I -- somewhat delusionally as it turns out -- tried to watch the match at the new Biergarten on H Street. We settled for a much less crowded bar down the street (which quickly filled up with Biergarten refugees), but next time you're in town we need to check it out -- they have spatzle!!
