The Power of the World Cup

It is no surprise that people join in on all of the World Cup fun every time it rolls around; I myself “hop on the bandwagon” every four years. Soccer is supposedly called “The World’s Sport,” hence the title, but many people disagree with the statement especially in America.

Despite the skepticism, the power to unite numerous countries for a month is unbelievable! Putting aside religion, race, politics, etc all for a few games is absolutely indescribable. Watching the game on TV gives me this chill that is incredible to feel; with every game I’m on the edge of my seat. Like I mentioned before, I am not a big soccer fan, but these games are certainly making me think otherwise.

Even the crowds at these games are amazing to watch; the energy and excitement coming from both teams during the games are impeccable…I’m sorry, but baseball and football can’t compare to these fans at all.
