World Cup Fever

Costa Rica and its inhabitants have been consumed with World Cup Fever and pride in their amazing team who despite all odds made it to the Quarter finals.  They played the Netherlands yesterday and kept them from scoring in a 0 to 0 game which went to penalty kicks.  Sadly, they lost in these last stressful moments, but they have left the world with such an impression of good sportsmanship and pride of country.  Glenn and I as Costa Ricans could not be prouder of our adopted country and I congratulate everyone in this tiny country, where there is no army or military at all, cradle to grave health care and guaranteed education for all and where the president of the country was in the streets celebrating with his people both the wins and the losses of a superb group of young men.  Proud to be a Costa Rican!
