All of Seoul is abuzz today, running about in red t-shirts in anticipation of South Korea’s World Cup game tonight. Like most Americans, I don’t follow soccer, even at the World Cup level. I did, however, finally figure out that Korea’s baseball league is still playing during the World Cup and hope to catch a game tomorrow night. There is a team here in Seoul sponsored by Hyundai called “The Unicorns.” As much as I would love to go to a Unicorns game, the team’s website is not in English so I can’t figure out if they’re home or away this week. The Bears, on the other hand, had it’s information translated enough for me to figure out that they’re playing at 6:30 tomorrow.
After a full day spent at the DMZ with North Korea, climbing up and down infiltration tunnels built by the N. Koreans I may not muster enough energy to make my way to City Hall in downtown Seoul, where a huge crowd has already gathered to watch the game.
