I watched the World Cup final from Stars and Bars on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi! Of course, since it is Ramadan there were no alcoholic drinks being served, but plenty of food and other refreshments since the game didn’t start till 11pm local time (well after sunset). It was a very good well played match on both sides. This was the first game I had watched in an American themed restaurant, so the game had already been on for several minutes before I realized that I could actually understand what the commentator was saying, because it was being broadcast in English! The few 8pm games that I had previously attempted watching were all broadcast in Arabic. Luckily, I do understand the basics of futbol, so that wasn’t necessary for me to understand what was going on. Although I think Argentina did well, I was glad to see Germany win especially since they had been playing well consistently through the entire tournament.

FIFA World Cup – Congratulations Deutchland!
Hi, I’m Elaine. I am an undergraduate student at Lehigh University. I am studying Civil Engineering and Architecture through Lehigh’s Arts-Engineering program. This is a five year program through which I will graduate with two bachelors degrees. In addition to being a dual major here at Lehigh I have been a student-athlete in our NCAA Division I Women’s Rowing Team. I am involved in the Reformed University Fellowship. I am also a member of Lehigh’s chapters of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Society of Women Engineers, Chi Epsilon, and Tau Beta Pi. In semesters where my schedule has permitted, I have also been an Engineering Tour Guide for the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering. View all posts by luelaine15
