FIFA Congress Ends

FIFA -- Fédération Internationale de Football Association which is the international governing body of football held its congress here in the Bahamas. It wound up a couple of days ago, but the delegates are still here, lounging (or perhaps languishing) on the beach.

The Lovely One and I found ourselves inside Atlantis (we were seeing what film was playing in the theatre) when we came across the FIFA-ites. There was an Italian sports commentator speaking to the television camera for the Italian fans. There was a polyglot of nations, all involved in the serious business of matching men on a pitch to kick the balls to each other.

It was a coup for this country to get the congress.
