Women’s World Cup has been enjoyable to watch

USA! USA! USA! Do you care if the United States’ women’s soccer team wins the Women’s World Cup in France?

I am not a big fan of watching soccer, including on TV. It takes too long with too little scoring. Yeah, I know, some of my snobby European friends say I just don’t understand the intricacies of this most popular sport worldwide. Whateva.

Surprisingly, though, I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the games, including rooting hard for team USA. I am a patriot and I can’t think of a better present for celebrating Independence Day than to triumph in France.

In 2009 I wrote the pamphlet, or mini book, “Creating Mauitopia: Making Maui a Real Paradise” (updated edition available for free at mauitopia.org). Creating Mauitopia may take longer than a soccer match but it will be a more major triumph.
