FIFA World Cup – Congratulations Deutchland!

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. 20140714_015219
