A dirty little secret

All right, here I go. I kinda like sports. Believe it or not. It depends on the sport, yes, but I don't have the liberal/hipster disdain for sports that you might think I do. I'm not gung ho about them, but, well, they're there and they're cool sometimes.

When are they cool? How about the Women's World Cup. It's not my favorite event, I think World Cups are overrated. But on the other hand, they're rare, and only a complete fluke brought it back to the United States again, four years later.

What I'm trying to say here is that there's tickets available for a double-header on Thursday the 25th. The first game, starting at 4:45 (supposedly), is Sweden vs. North Korea. If you've got work, you can be late, I'm sure. Cause the main event is at 7:30, with the USA playing Nigeria. I hear the American women are "good" at this sport. It's $30 at cheapest, but god dammit, when else are you going to see a World Cup game in your hometown? (I follow this sort of thing - 2014 would be the earliest for the men. Who knows with the women, but probably along those same lines)

So drop me a comment or an e-mail if you're interested. You know you want to.
