This Thanksgiving, was not like any other. Instead of watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, I spent the day watching football (soccer) games, because for the first time the FIFA World Cup is happening in November. This year, it is being held in winter, not summer because of the soaring temperatures in the summer.
I always try watch as many games as I can during the World Cup, and this year is no different. So far I have been able to find a way to watch most games, including the four games today. Even while I was the only one in my house interested in watching the games, my family didn’t mind. So far there have been some very surprising games and I do not want to miss anything. Besides, I joined them when the games weren’t on, told them the scores and they joined me sometimes.
I’m very thankful they let me enjoy the games today, but I’m even more thankful I was able to enjoy the day with the people and the dogs I love. I also really enjoyed seeing Portugal and Brazil win.
