FIFA World Cup fever has been rampant in my house since the very first match on June 12 with Brazil facing Croatia.
As I was sitting watching that very first game I was shocked at the players who would fall down and grimace as if they were hurt badly when it was obvious that they were not.
My son, Benjamin, has been knocked in the head with a soccer ball with such force that he flipped over backward. Did he roll around on the ground in pain? Of course not! He popped right back up, shook his head a little and kept playing.
