World Cup Day

I have to admit that I’m not the biggest soccer fan on the planet but there are a few things that I always think about when the four year cycle hits us…

First of all I believe that this is the game of great equality.   It warms my heart to know that every country in the world can participate in this sport because even the poorest of countries can afford a ball to kick around and children of all backgrounds participate in this sport.

Secondly I’m reminded of how many people around the world watch these games.  This is big!! Really Big!!!  Not unlike the Olympics, this is viewed by millions and in a way brings our planet together….

The last thing that hit me this morning was that we have 2 countries playing in the final today that have Cuban Cigars available for sale….. They can be purchased in Spain, of course and the Netherlands is another Cuban friendly country…. I hate to see myself as being that focused on cigars but whenever I think of holidays I wonder if Cubans are for sale wherever I’m landing……
