Well, I celebrate the World Cup with strong cup of coffee (at least the next day at work). I remember when South Africa won the bid for the 2010 World Cup, the country was absolutely jubilant. Let's hope that some of the World Cup money will help continue the rebuilding of the rainbow nation. Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika!

My fiance and I are lucky enough to work at a company that has a flat-screen TV in our "break room," complete with comfy couches and a coffee maker. We've been sneaking away with other coworkers to watch games. It's a great experience! I've been a HUGE FAN of Putumayo for years, and I'm always thrilled to listen to new albums!

Love the World Cup, Love football... or soccer as they call it here in the states. Enjoying "Watch the Games" parties w fun & funky themed appetizers featuring each country's specialties... people LOVE trying out new goodies!!! Putamayo music is downloaded on my IPOD when I run... I dance down the trails... rock the miles away to sometimes Calypso, sometimes reggae, sometimes.. you get the idea...

Love the Putomayo CD's especially the way they are recorded. The sound is so rich. Ialso love the way the CD's transport you to another place even if you've never been there.

I love soccer! I used to play when I was younger and even now I love to watch professional soccer players' fancy foot work and talent. It never ceases to amaze me what they can do with their feet! I don't have a preference who wins, but I love that it brings so many people together to root for their own country. I remember being in Europe during a World Cup and hearing all the surrounding people watching, cheering, celebrating. It is like a huge cheerleading event for each country!

I've been really enjoying watching the game in restaurants and bars where people from all over can gather together. It's so nice to be able to share the experience, even with everyone cheering for different teams.

The pictures from the opening ceremony blew me away! I'm meeting friends over lunch during the week to watch the games - and always listen to international music to bring the global world to my everyday routine.

Ever since visiting my daughter in Togo, West Africa, when she was in Peace Corps, I have been an avid fan of African music from all areas of Africa. This one is different from anything I have, and it would be a pleasure for me to give it to her as a gift.

I'm scheduling many of my activities around the games...Thank heavens there are only, at most, three a day!

I love Putamayo albums, and buy them for every baby shower and child's birthday. The lounge series is usually the background music for my parties as well!

I'm thrilled to watch the world cup shine a light on an aparthied-free South Africa. I'll be celebrating watching the games with a few blasts on a vuvuzela (Annoying, yes, but the sound of joy!) and getting the neighborhood together for backyard soccer games complete with tripping toddlers, dogs and milk-crate goals in the cool evening breeze. Thank you Putomayo, for perfect mixes to introduce us to world music.

I have been enjoying watching the World Cup games at friends' houses or watching it on the big screen in the cafe at my work! It has been very exciting to pick and team and cheer for them.

I'm more interested in international music than in sports, honestly. But I like that soccer/football is such a beloved sport all over the world.
