In Russia it is said that chickens are milked, and cows carry eggs. (A mockery of those who believe ridiculous rumors.)

Interesting, Svetochka and her mother rooting tooting for Russia in football (Soccer)

Svetochka’s mother is in Moscow and we are in The Tiny Russian Village. But that does not stop the phone calls and the knowledge that Russia and football game was yesterday. Svetochka knew exactly what time the game started and her mother called her several times to make sure that she was going to watch it. Football and or Soccer as Americans call it, is truly the world sport….billions and billions of people get involved and Svetochka even has a football World Cup shirt to wear… 😉

I myself do not have much of any desire for virtually any sport and thus I just watched the excitement of everyone around me in Russia. The big village emptied the streets near game time and Svetochka had the internet going on the laptop and the pregame rolling…

But alas Russia got smacked around by Uruguay and U – 3 to R-  0

I had a little sweet pea and she was getting upset and excited about the game. Russians love their football, almost as much as hockey…

One last phone call made after the game ended and Svetochka smiled after here and her mother consoled each other at the world shaking loss to Uruguay. But life goes on and it all gets better…

Life’s good…
