Hello, Mary! When people I know profess to ignorance of the World Cup, I
know it is my duty to inform them! :) Really, lots of people seem to be
brainwashed by the media here. For example, many people during the WC told
me they "didn't like soccer" (of course they mean football). Many of these

don't like soccer" columns in the paper. But the same people will also look
at me dumbfounded when I tell them I don't watch the Stupor Bore...
