Beautiful World Cup Calendar - check it out


"A voracious consumer of culture," isn’t that what we called him, Andrea? I’m so glad you’re in my/our life/lives, Peter! 

So tell me: where’s The Place to Be for the US vs. UK game? I want to convince my single ladies to come watch it with me. There’s gonna be BOYS, right? (Non-single ladies also welcome too, of course.)

peterwknox:

Dear girlfriend, friends, and others:

The World Cup is about to start. This Friday in fact. Starting this Friday, for exactly a month, there is international tournament style soccer happening several times a day, every day.

Imagine if the entire world cared about March Madness and these were professional athletes representing countries instead of schools. The World Cup has the power to shut entire countries down during a single game (and it has), with the country of Ireland famously syncing with the host’s time zone even.

These are big games. Bigger than the Olympics. And they only happen every 4 years. I will be watching them. I will be moving my schedule around for them. And let’s hope you bear with me because I’ll be back again on July 12th.
