The usual slackers were in the lunchroom at work watching the latest game instead of working. Last time I walked in during a match one of them weakly said, "Go Costa Rica" or maybe it was "Go Guatemala", but I know he would be hard pressed to find either place on the map. Another slacker had a Sweden jersey on. Sorry buddy, I do not think that will work out so well this year.

This time there was nothing. No chatter, no encouragement for either team, just a pile of slackers looking dumbstruck. Then I checked the score - Germany 5, Brazil 0 at that point.

I guess the pressure is on when you are the host team in a soccer mad country.
