Football ( Soccer) is fairly popular in the States but has yet to gain the following of other countries. Hong Kong and Asia follow the rest of the world in celebrating football. This year was the world cup which took place in South Africa. We watched a few games at 10 at night and some at 2 am. The displays in the mall were fun for the kids. The malls here would show them on their giant TV screens and create seating or standing room that allowed the crowds to watch the games. We rooted for the US of course- Nathan picked the Netherlands as a winner early on. The final came down to Spain and Netherlands with Spain winning.
