I almost forgot that this was coming up this year. I plan to watch as many games as I can, however both USA and Ghana were kicked out of the Cup so I have no personal bias to any of the teams playing so I plan to simply watch. Eight years ago my parents home country Ghana was about break African history by being the first African country to make it to the semi-finals. Their match was against Uruguay and was a tied 1 to 1 game near to the end of the game, around the last few minutes Ghana made a strong push to score the goal which revolved around multiple shots against the goalie and the defenders feet away from the goal. Unfortunately Ghana made a shot that should have been considered a goal but a Uruguay player who was not the goalie used their hand to throw it out. Normally that should have still been a goal but due to the decision of the referee it was changed to a penalty kicked that was missed and resulted in the unfair loss of Ghana and the dream of an African country participating in the semi finals. That my most memorable experience of the World Cup, mostly surrounding everyone in my family scream and cry in anger. so now I plan to watch it for watching sake :).
