FIFA World Cup Kicks Off Tomorrow, Friday - USA plays England Saturday


Here is the official theme song of the World Cup.

Here is my favorite South American singer, Shakira performing her song for the World Cup.

Finally, and you have to be patient because the opening concert for the World Cup was in several languages, here is Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a legendary leader of South Africa through the mean years and friend of Nelson Mandela who brought South Africa through the end of racism.

I was honored to spend some time with Archbishop Tutu when I worked for the Governor of New Jersey and he was one of the most engaging, entertaining and high spirited souls I ever met with an endless sense of humor. You can see this in the English portions of his World Cup appearance earlier today.
