On What It's Like to Watch the World Series from the Other Side of the World

Ever heard of the World Series?

If you live overseas you may not even realize it's happening as we speak (type? read? blog?)

When you live overseas, American culture can sometimes become part of your past life.  Trends change faster than you can imagine!  And when you talk to family or friends back home, sometimes you haven't a clue what they are talking about.  Going back Stateside can be even more embarrassing!

But here we are - my family and I - sitting in our living room, watching the World Series.  Live.  For free.  We even hosted a playoff party last week. 

When you live overseas and you host a sports party for a game you are watching live, things are different.  You don't serve chips and hot dogs (or whatever you'd serve at a normal sports party - I never held a sports party in the States - in fact, there are a lot of things I've never done in the States that are a normal part of life here). 

Instead, you serve things like biscuits, eggs and sausage.  Because the game usually starts before 6 in the morning. 

And since our firstborn child was born in Texas, we think the Rangers are worth it.

Join the conversation, glorify the Lord, proclaim his goodness. I'd love it if you did.
