It's almost two hours until the first kick of the World Cup. Just as we are gearing up to celebrate all that is wonderful in the world of soccer, I'm learning more than I ever wanted to know about the disgusting choices made by the host country at the World Cup venue. I could have lived a lifetime, happy on touchlines from neighborhood schools to grand stadiums, without ever knowing how Germany gets its kicks. How very, very sad.
