The Beautiful Game

Today is a black, black day for Argentine soccer. We just lost 6 to 1 against Bolivia! And if you're wondering if this is an April's Fools joke, I wish with all my heart that it were so. Today I woke up to a raging snowstorm, when you know, it's supposed to be Spring; a few hours later I saw my boys being defeated in the worst game of Argentine history. I don't know what to make for dinner, and the kids are hungry. All I want to do is be in a warm place, and have some very good warm food.
Yes, what a depressing day... and then I found this link in Kady's blog, that her husband posted, and it totally brightened my day. Well, not totally, but enough to help me function.
Besides the glamour of soccer, and the World Cup, and the fancy stadiums, there's this side of it. It's beautiful. Please, click on the link. You won't be sorry.
