The World Cup being over is still somewhat difficult for me to wrap my head around. Yes, I can now fully get back to work. Productivity should be returning to pre World Cup levels. The tournament is over. It’s a wrap. And I miss it incredibly. But all good things must come to an end. And, it was a ridiculously good tournament. And it was the first World Cup that truly played out on social media. Yes, social media was around in 2010, but not like it is today.
