The 1st Week of the World Cup....

The Vuvuzela's controversy, Spain (one of the teams, favored to win) has 1 loss under their belt, the USA getting the winning goal robbed from them on their 2nd match of the tournament, Italy's hotties have tied both their games (not good news) & Kaka, one of Brazil's top player gets red carded on Sundays match...What more can you ask for in the 1st week of the World Cup! This has been an awesome start to this tournament and yes anything is possible, but I would like to address the whole controversy of "The Vuvuzela". For those of you Sucias who don't know the Vuvuzela is a horn that makes a distinct sound, it is the culprit of the continuous humming sound during the ENTIRE game. Now every other Soccer fan that I have asked about this doesn't seem to mind or didn't even notice the "humming" sound. It never even occurred to me that there was a "humming" sound, until my husband asked me "What is that sound?" I was so into the game that I replied, "Huh?..Oh, it's horns", his response, "It's annoying". Of course it is (this is me being sarcastic), especially coming from someone who could care less about Soccer. And that is what I have concluded, every non-soccer fan has found this sound annoying, but anyone who has been to a professional match knows that there are horns, drums, singing & outrageous costumes throughout the entire soccer match. IT DOESN'T BOTHER US! This is no different than going to a baseball game & hearing a heckling fan non-stop on a player the whole game, or going to a Football game & seeing those crazy Raider fans that sit in the "Black Hole" dressed up like they just came out of a Kiss concert or even the Dominican fans constantly drumming on their drums during a World Baseball Classic game. So why all the hating on Soccer? Why can't the Americans give this beautiful sport any love? If you can answer this for me, I would love to hear it. And come on, the Vuvuzela isn't annoying, it just adds to the whole ambiance of the game! Till next week Sucias! XOXO QUEENIE

La Copa Mundial till the end?

Oh my! My last post "La Copa Mundial" had the most comments than any other posts in the history of "XOXO Queenie" and I have to say I L-O-V-E-D IT! Everyone expressed their feelings and I enjoyed every word even if its from the only 3 readers that read my blog (thank u!). So that got me thinking...since the World Cup is a month long and has created so much involvement of my readers why not devote my next postings to the World Cup until it comes to the end (July 11th)! On another note, I would like to congratulate my precious prima, la fea sucia of them all for graduating college this past Sunday from UCR (majoring in Physics)! Bravo & we will be celebrating this weekend! Also this weekend we will be celebrating Fathers Day. I hardly grew up with my father in my life. My mother was a single mother, I had her and my older brother that filled in for that father figure. Every Father's Day I call my mom before anyone else & wish her a Happy Fathers Day and I've never told my brother what he deserves as much as my mom..."HAPPY FATHERS DAY BRO!" And a big HAPPY FATHERS DAY to my husband! He is so devoted to our boys and at times they may drive me crazy but I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you for everything you do! You truly are the Best DAD ever! So Sucias "La Copa Mundial till the end?" I guess you will just have to come back & check it out! Till next week Sucias! XOXO Queenie
