Un Zih de Ensueño

Gee, I’m not feeling the love. I though for sure someone out there was a fan of fútbol, the national sport of México and the most popular sport in the world. The only reason I mentioned the games is because many Mexicans and sports enthusiasts around the world watched them. Plus it was so hot here, as in most of the world thanks to human arrogance and greed, that the place to be was indoors, and Sunday is a traditional day for watching sports in TV around the world. Especially when national teams are playing in popular FINALS.

¿Les estorbo? :stones:

We watched and enjoyed both games: the Women's World Cup and the Copa de Oro.
As a relative novice soccer fan, I was glad to see the US women's team score a second real "legitimate" goal. It would have been a shame to see the World's Cup decided by a penalty shot, which has to be one of the dumbest rules in soccer. If some infractions are considered serious enough to warrant a penalty shot, at least move the shooter's "spot" back another 10 meters or so, to give the goalie half a chance. As it is the goalie has virtually no time to react, only to guess. So you usually get the ridiculous picture of the goalie diving one way, while the ball goes the other.
It was great to see so many of Mexico's 2018 Men's World Cup team still with the national club.

I Google translated "Les estorbo?" and got "I hinder them?" Que?

You'd be surprised how many of the penalty kicks get blocked.

My bad, I wrote that message on my cellphone's microscopic keyboard which "spellchecks" and mostly ruins what I meant to say and I have a hard time reading all that tiny text. It should read "¿Los estorbo?" - Am I in your all's way? It's what I shout at drivers who cut me off in traffic.
