World Cup 2014


Is the World Cup a topic of conversation at your office?

A British ex-pat at a St. Louis area company sent the following message the other day:

I hear the odd person talking about this tournament (World Cup) at work, that’s if anyone takes a breather from talking about baseball ha ha. Feels like there is a growing fever, not sure about USA’s chances though!! Sorry. But an England v USA final would be rather cool.

Here are some great links to read and share throughout this month-long (June 12 through July 13, 2014) competition.
