Time to wrap things up. This chapter flew by didn’t it? Twenty-Two of the fastest days of this bookie’s life Time flies when one spends it with good friends. ; ) As always, it was an honor to spend time with all of you.
A small bout with a little personal adversity this time around. Any inclination to feel uncertain or apprehensive about the future was once again obliterated through our correspondence. Love hearing your news. Danke Schön, Brüder. As the time to retreat back in the Shadows once again beckons, I’ll treasure every connection and re-connection we’ve made over our brief time together.
Chile won this past Summer's "Copa America Centenario.". Mexico...oops...won the 2015 CONCACAF Cup. New Zealand, as if anyone cares, captured the 2016 Oceania Crown. Lest we forget, the World Champion "Fatherland" will be there as well. We await one last entrant to fill the field's final slot. Let it be the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon! We've waited long enough. The Egyptians were there back in 2009. Ze Germans wish to play Cameroon.
