World Cup Finals in Civic Center Plaza
The World Cup broadcasts in Civic Center Plaza are coming to a climax this Sunday the 11th with the final game of the tournament between the Netherlands and Spain.
I am torn between rooting for both countries, though Matt Hubbard has decided that all pointy-headed intellectuals must go for the Dutch.
I felt similar ambivalence watching the Ghana-Uruguay quarterfinal, Africa's last chance to advance in the tournament, which they lost in overtime in excruciating fashion.
The San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department is promising two large screens along with food vendors, music, and a beer garden from 9:30 AM to 4 PM. Broadcast time of the actual game starts at 11:15 AM, and may the sun shine on all of us.
