Most of the sports that we cover at the Arcadian Shop are pretty individualized. From biking, to climbing, to kayaking none of these are considered purely team activities. Being a native of New Jersey, I was not as exposed to some of these sports as you Berkshireites. I was, however, deeply immersed in the most beautiful sport of them all, the game of soccer. The greatest tournament in the world in upon us.
The FIFA World Cup is less than one month away. The tournament starts on June 11 and team USA faces England on June 12. Here is your opportunity to start waving your flags and partake in the world's most unifying sport. Games will be shown in the cafe. Craziness is encouraged. Lets Go USA. Here are a few links to inspire the inner patriot in you:
