If you’ve been to the SEC Tournament, you know what it’s like to catch the fever. After one day of World Cup watching, there’s nothing that can stop you from catching the fever.
In the first full day of football, we had a game won on a header in the final ten minutes, an own goal cost someone a game in extra time and Ronaldo went full-Ronaldo in a rivalry game. With three minutes to play, he buried a beautiful free kick to complete a hat trick and prove he is not mortal.
I’ll be the first to admit that I had little to no interest in the American-less international competition. Then the games began and they’ve been so crazy I can hardly pay attention to my keyboard. If there are typos in this post, the blame falls squarely on Lionel Messi’s shoulders.
If you refuse to catch the fever, I feel for you. You’re missing out. The alternative isn’t bad, but I can only watch Dustin Johnson crush the U.S. Open field for so long. He’s the only competitor under-par with a four-stroke lead entering moving day.

I Took a Dive
Sometimes you gotta do the right thing. Last night, doing the right thing was letting Dwight Witten beat me in a beer-chugging contest. Tony Vanetti’s radio partner stood no chance, but in an act of charity, I gave the old man a win. Folks, that’s how you respect your elders.
