World Cup Quarterfinals begin tomorrow and Honduras is on the outside looking in…

Qualifying for the World Cup is an accomplishment in itself and because the country of Honduras has not been since 1982 they should be congratulated. Unfortunately the best of the three results in South Africa was a tie in the final group game. Because they lost 2 games and tied the third the Honduran team did not advance past the group stage of the tournament. Also the two finalist from the last World Cup did not make it past the group stage either. Honduras had a competitive team but lacked the ability to finish.
I will be pulling for Ghana to win it all from here as they are the sole representatives left from the host continent.

Moving in a completely different direction it looks like Guanaja may have gotten some much needed rain from Alex which passed the island as a tropical storm, crossed the Yucatan peninsula and became a hurricane in the southern Gulf of Mexico

We hope everyone on the island is doing well.

Congratulations Honduras!!!

With a goal in extra time last night the United States was able to tie Costa Rica in the last qualifying match for the 2010 World Cup. This tie game and the Honduras victory over El Salvador last night has assured the country of Honduras an invitation to the World Cup for the first time since 1982. Hopefully a monumental achievement like this will galvanize the country and bring peace. I am sure that the country is buzzing with anticipation of this huge event.

Visit Guanaja, Honduras.
