And so the World Cup is finally under way. After all of the hype and all of the commercials (thousands a day that bombarded us while watching ESPN) the tourney is finally officially under way.
In the opening match the host country of South Africa faced the underrated Mexico. The game ended in a 1-1 draw, a bad sign of things to come for both teams in their groups. I will be watching a lot of soccer over the next month, but I have to say that I was not that impressed with this game. Just not an exciting start to the tourney.
