HOUSTON, TX – You probably realized by now that people around the world love soccer. World Cup here, World Cup there. If it is not you, someone at work or among your friends must be spending lots of quality time finding religion in front of the TV.

Seriously, the game is on fire. Spain and England are out. The dream of a trophy is still alive for Argentina, Brazil, Holland, Germany and others, while Mexicans can’t get enough of their goalkeeper’s magic. Team USA will play Portugal on Sunday, after a miraculous win 2 to 1 over Ghana.

Soccer is fantastic! Although, we still need to learn how to cheat, whine and fake an injury if we want to prove that we can be awesome at this sport too.
