Here at TheSportsEconomist, we’re not just sports economists but also sports fans, and therefore there was a healthy degree of rivalry between our American and English bloggers prior to last Saturday’s big World Cup game.
That being said, I really meant to post right after the match, but I dropped the ball. So, I thought I would take a moment now to congratulate our English contributors on their country’s fine performance before the opportunity slipped though my fingers. Of course, quite a few Americans still can’t quite grasp the importance of the World Cup, so they fumbled the opportunity to watch a great game. I hope you all enjoy the remainder of the tournament and that you can catch the rest of the games.
