Today was the first day of the FIFA World Cup 2010 (FWC), and I was very excited to finally, after 4 long years, watch the opening ceremony, and the first game, that took place at Johannesburg this morning.
I remember growing up as a kid in Israel I used to always wait to the FWC to start (right around when the big summer break started), just so I can watch all the great players such as Maradona, Romario, Baggio and many more go up on the field and play. There was no politics involved, only 22 players that play for the love of the game.
Today’s games were okay. I enjoyed watching the first match between South Africa and Mexico, but unfortunately I cannot say the same about the second game, France vs. Uruguay, which was very boring.
Attending the FWC once in my lifetime is definitely on my To Do List. I just hope that one day I will get to fulfill this wish.
The video below emphasizes, I want to believe, how great this sport event really is. It will be interesting to come back to this post in 4 years and take a look at the video. :)
