I've been watching the World Cup games at my desk while working, but I learned last Friday that it's much more difficult to pay attention to my job when I have an interest in the game. I had a staff meeting during the second half of USA vs. Slovenia, and so I was more than a little distracted. With two games in the USA's group at 9:30 AM today, I thought it best to use a half day and watch the game at home.
If the USMNT advances and we play again while I'm at work, I don't know what I'll do. Why can't they schedule these games around my job? Why should I have to change my plans?
