The morning game between Argentina and Switzerland also went to overtime, and was won by Argentina 1-0 on a goal scored late in the overtime period. A majority of the "knockout round" games have gone to overtime....a testament to how evenly matched the top 16 teams are.
In between the morning and afternoon matches TLE and I walked over to Raley's to buy some snacks for the USA vs. Belgium game, and were back by 12:45 and in our outdoor seats for the game. We watched both games outside as it was very warm.....81 degrees by 11 am, and ultimately it got close to 90 degrees again......for the first time since March, when we were in Arizona, we had to turn on the A/C for a few hours.
Tuesday we were officially approved for hiring after passing our background checks, and we clock in officially for our first work day this Thursday at 8 am.....of course! That is the day our 2 daughters arrive, so they will be on their own until we clock out at 4:30. Nevertheless, we will now be working at least 3 days a week (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays) for the rest of our stay here at TVC. This week we will work Thursday, Friday and Sunday as we have rafting reservations on Saturday to raft down a section of the Truckee River out of Tahoe City with our kids.
That was our Tuesday.....thanks for stopping by!
