    Live Telecast of FIFA world cup has created craze on TV. Everybody comes from office before the match timings to watch the football world cup. Many offices have installed big TV screens and even restaurants are in competition to install bigger screen than others. Who wants to miss seeing Ronaldo, Bekham, Rooney or Zidane :wave

    Cheers to Football World cup!!!

    Only FIFA on TV

    Yeah, FIFA the Football world cup has started and I have received instructions from my husband not to touch remote. He watches the match, highlights, discussions on football full day even repeat telecast! I am given frown looks if I touch remote especially on Football matches of Brazil, England, Italy and Argentina. I wish this 1 month craze gets over soon so that I can watch my favorite TV serials again.

The enthusiasm and fever has caught up with everyone ...and whether you like it or not you are a part of it...and of course it is live on the german channels.....and a whole lot of other events are also organised to entertain the guests on the other timings....SO MUCH of Activity and Crowd!

    FIFA in Germany

    Being in Germany, I can understand the craze there. Football is the biggest craze and this is the World Cup. Surely aftre one month, it will all look deserted suddenly. But then you can enjoy to the fullest in this one month long Football craze. Even here we get all articles with football designs. Be it purses, bags, t-shirts, caps everything. We are getting all team color shirts to cheer the country we want. Brazil, Argentina, Italy, Germany, England, all dreses are available...its all football here too!

    Can't resist TV FIFA

    I cant do anything but watch the football matches when they are on all TV channels and news. It automatically generates interest and the matches are good to see and exciting with no results predictable. I loved the football played by Argentina against Serbia & Montenegro in which Serbia lost by 6-0 Wow what a match by Argentina!!! They have great footwork and great passes between the players.

    Football fever..

    True, football fever is something one has to experience! I can fully imagine the excitement in Germany, the way Sudha describes it. My daughter is wearing her German caps and t-shirts to work and is sms'ing and msg'ing her friends in Germany to keep up with it from her otherwise calm office!! I am only able to catch it whenever she rambles on in the phone to me about it :)) I wonder who the general favorite is. I, ofcourse, am rooting for Germany, what else!!

    Hi laksn..

    Well, Brazil and Argentina are the obvious favourites. Would be nice if Germans would win this time though:)

    As for the Indus meet in NJ, I must say that the idea did cross my mind often and now you have said it! Why not? Start the ball rolling..my house is open to my IL friends.

    Just thought i would share this with you , since u are supporting Germany.
    You will not believe it is Germany Kamala...all the sour faced people are smiling and laughing and enjoying....what with so many foriegners...no grumblings.
    Here in Frankfurt a huge screen about more than 5ofeet is erected bang in the middle of Main River and people are seated on both sides of the bank....seats are provided and security check is there...and people fill in 3 hrs before any good match. was there yesterday for Germany and Equador played in berlin! About 20,000 people were there! The feeling was so infectious, through the sun and rain we all stood for more than 3 hrs and didn't we enjoy! And frankfurt was on top of listing for the huge fan following till yesterday, followed by Hamburg!
    al shops are open till 10 , can u believe this? and even on weekends the big malls are open....
    Germany did play well yesterday....lets see how they all fare in the next 2 rounds....

    more later...ha ha! keep ur fingers crossed for Germany!
    :p
