countdown.

56 more days until the World Cup.
Not that I’m counting or anything.
Soccer has always been a huge part of my life.  My brother Nico, who is pretty much a superstar on the field, has had a soccer ball at his feet from the time he could walk.
I also played for a year or two, however a superstar I was not.
(I may or may not have joined soccer for cute boys). 
Despite that little confession, I do have a strong love for the game.
From the first day I met my husband, I’ve heard all things Lionel Messi.  Almost three years of watching him have passed and I am more than convinced he is the player of our time.

This year I will be cheering for two teams, Italy and Argentina.  The first being my motherland, and the second for the brilliance of Messi.
