They call him Messiah

I was torn; I didn’t know if to back Argentina (I am a “Messi” fan) or support Germany (the team which had played better games for the entire World Cup). I ended up siding with Messi but it wasn’t his best game by far.
As we wind down after weeks of being involved in the drama and excitement of the World Cup, I continue to marvel at the exhorbitant sums of money being paid to popular players. It’s like one man is getting all that money? For playing football? Seriously? But we reap what we sow, even though we know it’s not wise to idolize men aka mere human beings.

  1. So much hype. And now it’s all over. I was pleased the U.S. stayed in the competition longer than England. Himself won’t talk about it! lol 😀
