fun entry
I dont' know you, but I saw your entry as I went in to ck my son's blog. He is in Spain for the summer and I happened to see your entry and read it. we love soccer too. My son, like you, didn't take his USA jersey, cuz he was afraid it would make him stand out like a beacon for theives. But we are excited for the World Cup. Best wishes for you for a great vacation. Great photos. And "good on ya" for admitting you're Catholic. Us too. M Denton Idaho

I did take my USA jersey. I'm sure there will be so many US supporters. I just didn't buy the blue one because i thought the stripe across made me look ridiculous. Thanks for the comments! Yea I am super stoked on the world cup and excited for the vacation.
