I am not a sports person.
But seeing as it was the World Cup final, and I was in Italy, land of the soccer-obsessed, I relented and went to a big-screen showing of the game at the Villa Borghese last night. My biggest question: "Even if I don't care that much about the game, will it be fun?" "Definitely," I was assured. "It's outdoors, it's a scene, it's where everybody goes for the final games..."
Well. It may not have exactly been my idea of fun, but the last three characterizations were certainly true.
