But it's been fun to be caught up in the World Cup fever since in the USA, there's not that big of a following. Even with the home team out of the games, we'll probably still go watch some games (I'm cheering for a Spanish or Portuguese-speaking team to win!).
Vuvuzelas weren't allowed in the Hirschgarten biergarten during the game between Ghana and Germany last week. Security made the people who tried to bring them in write their names on their vuvus in the hopes of getting them back at the end. Considering German organization here, they might just have gotten everyone's vuvus back to the right person.
