The World Cup spirit... you can feel it...but can't describe it



No... this wasn't my office... but an office in Argentina (I guess you could see the same image in almost every office, house, bar, street in Buenos Aires and Argentina).
I just found this description (in spanish) of the feeling of doing a great show in the World Cup... I don't think everyone can understand why this means so much. I would not be able to explain it... but I would just say go...and get "infected" by the football fever!

I just wish I could be there during that show... (I think is even better than being at the stadium in Germany being part of an historical match), as I wish I could be in Italy enjoying the match from a screen near the sea during the Italian matches... I think I wish too many things hehe.

So, here the first part of the text I liked so much (in spanish) and the link to read the rest of it. Again, AGUANTE ARGENTINA CARAJO!

4. Siga el baile

La fiesta ha sido imparable. En Buenos Aires la euforia se huele, sin necesidad de respirar. “¡Aguante Argentina, carajo!”, se repite en cada esquina, mientras la gente baila y agita banderas y se abrazan en las oficinas y en las escuelas y en las universidades y en el subte y en los taxis y en las cafeterías y en todo lugar de la ciudad donde, al menos, haya dos argentinos juntos.

Hi Carissa!
Thanks!!! I am trying! I think I even got people interested about football (here soccer) in my office... well... kind of... maybe they want my teams to be out soon so that I go back to normality again hehehe

Thanks for your cultural sensitiveness and for supporting my other countries! ;)

Hugs and Hop Schwiiz!
