This Saturday, we did a special 60 minute World Cup ride.  All songs in the playlist are from artists whose country is in the World Cup. 

Teaching in DC, all of a sudden folks are hockey fans.  Nearly 75% of the Washington Capitals players were born outside of the United States.  So it's OK to root for another country:)
