Unintentional hilarity of the week:

Six neurologists.

One from Romania, one from Puerto Rico. Two from Africa (Ethiopia and Ghana). Two from the U.S.

All of them standing in the hall, arguing about the World Cup. In English. With accents getting heavier and heavier as they get more and more impassioned.

It got to the point that all of them were dropping into their native languages at times to make their respective points (including the guy from Georgia, who has a Southern drawl that would make your eyes glaze over), and yet they still all understood one another. Mostly.

Wish I had been a fly on the wall. It sounds like it was fun to watch.

I would like to listen to the ensuing discussions after that USA vs Slovenia game...that last minute goal that the ref didn't allow due to the nonexistant "foul".... =^@

That's hilarious and not surprising. The (nearly)world-wide passion is best part of the Cup.
