One of the benefits of having an unusual work schedule is that one might find himself free at 2:00 in the afternoon on a Monday to watch a futbol match from several time zones away. I’m still reeling from England’s stoppage-time victory over Tunisia in Monday’s World Cup action, an event whose thrilling conclusion was topped only by the fact that it took place while most Americans were at work.
Oh, Americans and their work, work, work.
Group action begins at 8:00 a.m. Eastern time today with Portugal vs. Morocco. The Spaniards take the pitch at 2:00 today for those of you sneaking out early.
I won’t tell.
