Once again, there was soccer. Women’s World Cup Soccer to be more specific.
The other night the US women won their game against Germany.
And while they may have won, they didn’t exactly play to Dad’s standard. I know this because of the string of “No, no, NO! What are you thinking!?!” and “Cross! Cross! Aw, come on, you gotta play better than that!” and other similar comments snarls bellows.
Dad also found it necessary to comment on the officiating. “What? Are you kidding me? How can you not call that?” and “Nope, nope, nothing there, play on, good no call.”
Frankly, I’m amazed he didn’t lose his voice.
Last night was the Japan/England game. I’m not sure if Dad didn’t care as much or whether he really had lost his voice, but there was a lot less couch coaching.
The next game will be Saturday, USA versus Japan for the World Cup Title.
I’m off to buy earplugs.
