The FIFA World Cup has returned, and yet again, no team USA.
That doesn’t mean it’s still not fun to watch. Everyone has their own heritage or their favorite country that they would love to see win.
Personally, this author thinks the winner of the FIFA World Cup will either be Uruguay or Portugal. Why might you ask? Because Vegas says Uruguay has the best chance of winning, and Christiano Ronaldo is on Portugal. So ipso facto. (Note I don’t ever follow futbol, but I like to watch the cup, so I may not be your best insider).
Lake County is the place to be to watch the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Besides our Libation Trail that has all the brews you need in your life, our fair county has plenty of drinking holes to wet your whistle with international suds. A perfect complement to sports ball viewing.
