World Cup Futbol and Cattle Veterinarians
I know quite a bit about “football”; “American football”, that is. Like many young boys growing up in the U.S., “American football” is what I have come to know and enjoy. I have had the opportunity to play the game in high school and college and now as an “American football” official (that hated guy in stripes), I get the chance to stay involved every Friday night. However, I really know little to nothing about the other “futbol”, the one that is dominating the media lately with the World Cup being contested in Brazil.
All three of my kids played a little “futbol” while growing up, so I had a chance to watch some action (sometimes painful action). And I do have to admit that I have been following the World Cup if nothing else because I enjoy competitive sports in general. But again, I will fully admit I don’t understand the strategies employed or some of the antics displayed -- the flopping really irritates me, although it is kind of entertaining! It is really hilarious to see a grown athletic man writhing in pain on the ground and then a replay clearly shows that contact was nothing more serious than getting bumped by a 1,400-pound cow! And I certainly don’t see any of my colleagues rolling around in the barn yard that often!
