Joe--as he's done well over a hundred times before with our groups--drove masterfully from Amsterdam to Rome and up to Paris and was adored by all. ...

This great World Cup 2014 of shocks and beautiful, counterattacking football continued on, in its three Friday games, with even more treats being offered up this weekend -- Germany vs Ghana on June 21, Belgium vs Russia, and Dempsey's USA vs Ronaldo's Portugal on June 22.
