I ran into an English friend the other day and he wished me luck on the game. I thought his civility was kind of strange because USA-English relations have been at a low point—at least in my neighborhood of Valencia. Now I realize he had “Suck it USA!” written on the back of his England jersey. A tough opener for the USA. I’d be thrilled with a draw.

The good news is most of my Spanish friends will be on my side during the game. I am going to teach everyone to sing “This Land is My Land.” I'm dressing up as a cowboy.

and are you thrilled?

I’m so thrilled that I almost pooped myself. I didn’t and I think I’ve recovered from that little problem. The meetings have helped and I’ve been “clean” now for going on eight months. I just have to keep saying to myself, “Just one day at a time.”

The cool thing is that during the World Cup most people hate Italy more than the USA. The Spanish respect our squad seeing how we are the only team to have beaten them in something like four years. I hope it doesn’t come down to a USA-Spain confrontation although I’d love to see the USA knock out a powerhouse like Brazil, Italy, or Germany (a lot of people would like to see this).

I’m so thrilled that I almost pooped myself. I didn’t and I think I’ve recovered from that little problem.

So a friend of mine says "I ripped a shittie." We're trying to come up foreign equivalents. Since his tale came from a driving and police experience, I cane up with "J'ai chié partout la voiture." It sounds prettier than it is! What d'ya got for spanish?
