What we are doing is something that we have made it a point to do every four years. We do it because The World Cup is an experience like no other, an event that you MUST be a part of to fully understand.
In 1994 Brett and I were sitting in his apartment in Edwards, CO watching the US vs Brazil play their 2nd round game in LA when we made the decision to go to France for the 1998 World Cup. We kept the promise that we made to one another, and ourselves, that day. But, what we didn't realize that afternoon was the affect such a promise would have. Here we are, in Brazil, celebrating our 5th consecutive WC on foriegn soil.
I can't tell you how many times people have told us over the years, "I want to go with you guys for the next one", or something along those lines. I say the same thing to each of them, "Let's go. I'll be there, so if you want to go, let's go". It isn't that difficult to pull off. Save $25 per week, every week for 4 years. Nothing magical about it.
