Naturally... when we are awake at that godly hour, our tummy too will demand some attention.
Due to time zone, we get to watch the matches either at midnight, 3am or 6am, and soon it'll be at 4am...  when everyone else (not a footbal fan of course ;p) is in bed dreaming away...

...and these little bites are excellent for wee hours football matches!
Prepare them ahead of time...
you will definitely get a good bite for a good fight (on the football field.. I mean :)

  6. I don't really follow soccer (football) at all, but every four years I get addicted to the World Cup. It's so dramatic!
