Uncharacteristically Sporty

Anybody that knows me knows that I’m not the biggest sports nut. I casually follow the Dallas Mavericks and may catch a game or two here and there for sports other than basketball, but that’s about it.

However, with the Mavericks in the NBA Finals for the first time ever and World Cup starting up tomorrow, I’m in sports mode for the next couple of weeks (sorry, Spurs fans). Unfortunately, I’ve got to go to a rehearsal dinner tonight, so I’m DVR’ing the Mavs-Heat game. Shhh! I don’t want to hear it! I’m watching it later.

World Cup can be entertaining, especially as the teams are narrowed down. We’re getting the usual assurances that the U.S. team has improved and they’ll do better this time, but I have a hard time believing they’ll make it out of their bracket with the Czech Republic and Italy to get past. You can check out the schedule here, complete with nifty local time converter.

So where do you go to watch the big game? The consensus seems to be Ringers on Colorado between 4th and 5th although I’ve never been in there. What about The Warehouse? For World Cup in particular, it seems like Irish or English Pubs will also be hopping. Fado? What about the Ale House in the alley behind Old Pecan St. Cafe on Sixth?

    We watched Mexico beat Iran today, courtesy of Univision TV channel (non-cable) 31, Republica Deportiva. This is a great way to avoid obnoxious Bob Kostas. This week’s Ahora Si! has a great section that shows in which group each team falls and gives a brief rundown on prospects. I’ve heard that Cafe Mundi is showing these games on a big screen and also that Copa’s on Congress is showing them.
