I didn’t feel lonely at all, sitting in the On Air pub to watch Germany vs Portugal. At first there were only about five of us sitting there watching the first half of the game. Then the ice show let out with the usual intelligent folks who get partway across a lounge then stop to watch the big screen completely oblivious to the fact that their rather large size bodies are blocking the view of, oh say, about seven people behind them.
I had my knitting, my no-beer (the bar tender got it this morning just in case I came back for the next games) and a front row seat. Now, normally I don’t like sitting right up front with my back to the room. But I made an exception. Sitting up front gave me more light for knitting and placed me about as close to the viewing screens as was polite without getting my glasses smudged. You are aware that I don’t exactly have 20/20 vision even with my trifocals?
The game was fun, watching the crowd was a blast and even started feeling sorry for Portugal…
Meanwhile, Maus & Angel are watching in NYC
And Dani headed to the park for the later US-Ghana game
(thanks to the two girls for sending me pix)
The Eldest was in Germany where I am sure it got a bit insane ad George was in the New York location where there was no live coverage.
Oh and College Guy? He was hanging out at SFO waiting to see if he was going to get bumped from a flight. He did volunteer (later flight to Munich, connector to Frankfurt and $800 for his pocket – why not volunteer….)
By the time it was close to midnight, I was just too tired to head down to a pub for the game…
