Well, today Mexico lost to Argentina in the World Cup. I’ve never seen an outcome of a sporting event depress so many people. The World Cup is so big here. It’s like the Super Bowl, World Series, NBA Finals, and March Madness all rolled up into one. Plus the fact that everyone is cheering for the same team makes it even more crazy. There’s no disputing if my team is better than your team. So everyone is depressed when our team loses.
Mexico put up a great fight against Argentina, but they just couldn’t pull out the win. Now comes all the second-guessing and commentary about the team. It will be interesting to see how everyone continues with the World Cup. It is the biggest show on earth. I never realized how popular it is all over the world until this World Cup.
