As a lady sometimes I sit and admire men, how they get so excited about sports especially football and even women lately have become football fans. In fact as a child I discovered the best time to approach my dad for a need is when his team has won a match. Just make a wish, it’s all yours. This transcended down to my elder brother, the best time to get him to do something is when his team has won a match, and even his neighborhood team where he went to play with the  other boys in the hood while growing up. It’s about that time again when you get to hear  football being discussed passionately. Yes the FIFA world cup is by the corner. You see more than two men standing together for more than mins, the probability of football being discussed is high.
