2018 FIFA World Cup Postscript

2018 FIFA World Cup Postscript

The end is here. We may not want it to have gotten here, but we cannot stop it. 64 games were promised and 64 games were delivered. Invariably, some led to joy, others to tears and a few to other emotions depending on what rooting interest you had. Such is the way of tournaments and, […]
