World Cup, Part 4

Part 16 of 68 in a series:

Oooooh!!! Yet another victory!!!

What an amazing match! Well played, Japan!

I had rehearsals that day, so I couldn’t watch the game live on TV. But I checked the score every now and when I had a break. I could hardly contain myself when I heard the news that Japan had won!

I’m a beginner when it comes to soccer, but as I’ve been watching the games recently I’ve come to like Matsuda. Hehehe. Go Matsuda! Of course every player is wonderfully dynamic! I can’t wait for the next match.

And South Korea also won today! Congratulations to everyone in South Korea. I’m glad we can cheer each other along in the tournament as FIFA’s host countries.

Still, I can’t help but marvel at the tremendous force of the fans. For the athletes, to have this many supporters in the stands, and to have so many people in front of TVs all across the country cheering them on, must be a huge confidence booster. This power of the fans and their hopes is amazing. So all of you Maaya fans, please continue to kindly watch over and encourage me. With your help, my powers will grow to levels never before seen. Hahaha.

“the id” is saturated with the World Cup. This is the fourth update this month.
