Maca, what keeps me going for those 8 hour Saturday classes 
 WEEEEW CHELSEA!! After being stuck in class all day, at 4:20 I made a mad dash for the door and into the nearest tienda to catch Drogba sink the last shoot-out goal for the win. My students eagerly accept bets with me because, “You’re American, what do you know about soccer?” But come Monday, I’ll not only get to enjoy my pockets full of soles, but also the look of regret in my students eyes knowing that next time, they’ll think twice about betting on a German team.
