So as you all are -- I'm sure -- aware, Costa Rica defeated the United States 3-1 on Wednesday in 2010 World Cup qualifying. Were talking fútbol (that's soccer, guys). No, seriously, they played a game. It was a big deal here.
Well, this afternoon Jen and I were watching some more Big Bang Theory and suddenly cheers erupted from the house across the street. Turns out there was another match, this time Costa Rica versus Trinidad & Tobago (which, is that really fair? Two on one????? ;) ).
Since I am living here now, I am interested in things Costa Rican, so we went upstairs and tuned in the game on Jen's computer* (it has a TV tuner card) and I watched the last ten minutes or so,
Costa Rica won 3-2, and are now in first place in their qualifying division.
Go la Sele (selección nacional)!!
Also, we had lunch yesterday with some friends, and we talked about going to a (local) match some time. So that should be fun... and I promise not to yell for a First Down. :)
