Best & Brightest | 05

Happy World Cup Week! Or, as I like to call it, “those random 2 weeks every 4 years when even I actually keep up with soccer (sorry- football! sorry- futbol!) until the next 4 years come along.”

Yeah, World Cup Week was a stronger lead.

In 2010, I was working at a flower shop with a brilliant Hispanic designer who was completely obsessed with the World Cup. She totally sucked me in, to the point where we were live streaming games we could on the computer in the back, and even broadcasting other games through the speakers in the shop. It was awesome.

In case you get bored in between games, or annoyed that no one has scored a goal yet (not me, I’d never be annoyed by that…), here are some fun links from this week:

I guess I’ll cheer for Brazil, because obviously this is incredible:Brazil(source)
