World Cup watching in Houston

So, you couldn't make it to Germany this year. The bills, the shopping, the mortgage payment, yada, yada, yada. No need to sweat, get depressed, or go crazy! Here in Houston you have plenty of options to watch all the games of this year's World Cup, without the hassle of getting stuck in security, the danger of having no luggage when you arrive, or even worse: the possibility of missing your flight out to good ol' Deutschland.
