Awoooo... it’s a stressful day today, TAY. Well... I mean Brazil vs Mexico is on the TV as I write this opening for the OF, so if you care about football you understand why this would be a stressful match.

You might be wondering, “why does this donk keeps on trying to force feed me his love for this sport, doesn’t he know that no one cares about football in this country” and to all of you I say:

Thanks, Reggie!

Take it from me, a fool who refused to watch football in his home country until it was too late. Now I’m living away from home in a strange land where the feeling is eerily familiar to what happened to me many years ago, so save yourself the regret and do the right thing!

That’s it... OF cancelled, forget about the topics or songs....

Actually, I’ve been informed that I cannot suspend the OF...

What is going on? An appropriated forum, is what.

TODAY’S TOPICS:

  • We’re halfway through the bracket stages and three of the big ones have already bit the dust. With Spain, Portugal and Argentina... who is going to win the World Cup?
  • Fourth of July is right around the corner, some of you might be traveling and some of you might not. How are you celebrating independence day? Are you going to watch the fireworks? What are you grilling?
  • Hey... do you know what other huge event is happening today? No really, I’m asking because I have no idea. Talk about something that’s going on in your life!
  • This year’s World Cup song is not as good as Shakira’s Waka Waka, so please let’s make this wrong right and share songs to get me in a more festive mood! OR maybe you can share something to soothe our souls...
