All of Mexico City Watched the World Cup Today

This is a follow up to my Father's Day blog post where all who commented seemed to think that I would never, ever leave San Diego County. But, I do leave town once in a blue moon.

All of Mexico City watched the World Cup game today. Sadly for them, Mexico lost to Uruguay. Mexico City is famous for wild and crazy traffic jams, yet today you could get anywhere in town in record time.

The Zolcalo, in historic downtown, was packed with people--all of whom were watching the game on this huge screen. They say that it was so crowded that you couldn't even move.

Check out the big screen:

Melissa ~ Thanks for the World Cup update! I have been busy and have not had time to check the Internet to see what is happening outside of real estate! You are right,  getting around Mexico City was probably a breeze today!

Hi Melissa!  How cool is that?!  Now, that's one enormous screen, isn't it?!  Sad that they lost but, it has been an exciting series, for sure!

That is some screen, Melissa. The only other place that likely gets as crazy during the world cup is Brazil. It is actually a holiday of sorts when they play, especially in the finals. I have not been watching, only paying attention on-line here and there.

The world, what?

Seriously, they're lucky they change referees or Mexico City might have been burnt down.

Hi Melissa, That is a huge screen!  I've not been following the games, but glad to know the answer to your Father's Day post riddle.
