teams I cheered for and which have been sent home already:

South Korea (you know why)

Australia (HyoRyung knows why)

Mexico (Joserra knows why)

Croatia (mum knows why)

Sweden (Camilla knows why)

Never having been a football fan, I only just started two weeks ago. But maybe, just maybe, I should leave it be. I don't seem to bring any luck to the teams I support.

Yune's Birthday: South Korea vs. France

Yesterday was Yune's Birthday and also the second game for Korea in the World Cup.
We met at the Fan Fest in the olympic park in Munich, had Kimbab, snacks and cake, and watched the game on the big screen.

Yune's birthday brought Korea luck: the "second" goal which France actually scored was not considered as such, which proved lucky since the Korean team managed to only even things out with a 1:1.
Even though I am not interested in football at all I could not restrain myself from cheering for Korea. I think I turned rather loud at some point. But I did promise my Korean friends that I'd cheer for their guys, since I wouldn't otherwise cheer for anybody.

It was a one-time, fun thing to do, but I think watching too many games would both leave me in a constant state of hoarseness and full of adrenaline, so I couldn't sleep at all.
I know I'm not making any sense, so go look at some pictures!

AussieI'm sorry you guys didn't win yesterday, but I guess it *is* really hard against Brazil. They seem to be just the team of champions they used to be...
