Here's a little shout out to my student M and his Costa Rican heritage: congratulations on the Costa Rican team's historic performance at the World Cup!
The valiant Central American nation's football team thrilled its fans when it reached its first World Cup quarter final match with European powerhouse the Netherlands.
I caught the first half of the scoreless draw last night but fell asleep and missed the disappointing penalty shoot-out at the end.
Holland out-shot the Ticos 4-3 to end Costa Rican hopes, but it was a wild ride just same. . .
