OK, so the World Cup has Iceland [like most places in the world] firmly in its grip — even to the point where vuvuzelas have invaded Icelandic football stadiums and are actually being permitted, even though horns and noisemakers are normally forbidden in Icelandic stadiums.*
I’m kind of in the grin-and-bear-it category when it comes to the World Cup … I don’t get the hype, or the significance, or the writhing, agonizing displays of [apparently] excruciating pain by the players, who then get to their feet, hobble along for about two minutes with horrible grimaces before running off at full speed again. [Methinks it must be a variation of man flu].
Still, I sometimes hang out with EPI as he sits wound up like a coil spring on the couch, jumping up and shouting JÁ! JÁ! whenever, um, anything happens, and try to get all excited about the ball going into the, um, white square in front of the goal. Or something.
Anyway, because I know lots of people are NOT like me, and actually LIVE to watch the World Cup, and may be on holiday here, and would like to see a game on a proper big screen and everyfing … here is our pick for the BEST PLACE TO WATCH THE WORLD CUP in Reykjavík.
That’s it. That’s what EPI tells me, anyway, and in this case I have to rely on his expertise because, frankly, I don’t have a clue.
But — perhaps you do. Any readers who want to recommend the best place to watch the World Cup [or other competitive sports] in Reykjavík?
* Apparently ONLY for the duration of the World Cup, though. Here’s hoping.
