The football fanatic Brits in the office thought we needed to dedicate a whole day to celebrating the FIFA World Cup, so when I walked through the door on Friday morning the signature red balloons that were often floating around the office had been replaced with floating footballs.
There were footballs on flags that were necklacing the ceiling, little footballs on our desks…
..and there was even a football on the general manager’s head.
MOST people were dressed up, even if just wearing a token football tee. However those who WEREN’T were made to make ends meet by becoming one with the Beckham of shame.
We ate lunch around midday, thanks to Jay who cooked a delicious BBQ, and to keep in the soccer spirit even the paper napkins were themed.
Then we had a little parade so people could show off their outfits.
Who would score the most points?
The winners were announced:
These guys were all star players of the winning team.
As for me, I just sat on the sidelines and cheered.
Til next time…
