Argentina - World Cup Champions

One of my favorite things about working at The Basin is that every year we have several international workers. Over the years these employees have added incredible warmth, richness and beauty to our culture.

A couple weeks ago about 20 Argentinian college students  joined us for the winter - as the World Cup Finals approached. This morning I spent the last hour of today's Final in The 6th Alley with our new friends from South America. The game was a nail biter all the way. Tied at the end of regulation, tied at the end of a 30 minute overtime, Argentina won in a dramatic shootout. Getting to see these young people singing and celebrating and sharing so much fun and emotion so far from home was something I will always remember and treasure.

.........And I am so glad Argentina won.
