You gotta be wondering what this World Cup frenzy is all about. Sure, soccer is an international sport, and Miami is definitely an international city, but when was the last time you were able to find a seat in your favorite sports bar? Apparently it’s become the most-watched sporting event in recent history, outdrawing both the NBA Finals and the World Series. Crazy, eh? No doubt some of its popularity has something to do with the Heat’s meltdown in the last two games of the finals, leaving sports fans seeking solace and other teams to cheer on without fear of disappointment. So save a shout-out for Cricket Wireless and La Covacha (10730 NW 25th St., Doral) for hosting the Cricket Music Festival and Soccer Tournament, a viewing party and some family-friendly activities this Sunday. The action kicks off at noon when teams from Doral, Miami Lakes, and Coral Gables compete for local soccer honors. And to cap off the all-day event, fans can enjoy a special concert featuring reggae and reggaeton artist Joey Montana and Latin Grammy nominee Andre Cabas. Anyone interested in attending the event can pick up tickets at any local Cricket Wireless store.
