Let The Games Play On

Four years ago about this time, I spoke to a relative who was then still in Texas.

: There is a fever going on now in Malaysia.
: What fever?
: Soccer World Cup fever.
: Oh!? Is Malaysia in the World Cup?
: No.
: Oh. The US is in the World Cup, you know.
And there is no fever here.

Go figure.

South Korea is in the second round now, and we are still showing Hassan Sani and James Wong beating the South Korean goalkeeper in that classic 1980 Olympic Qualifying game.
