    World Cup

    So, are people here following the World Cup? Or not because Russia didn't qualify?
    Who are you cheering for? I'm cheering for Germany. They're in some trouble right now but I have faith.

    Netherlands forever!
    They're gonna have to face such giants as Italy and Brazil soon, but both Italy and Brazil "неважно выглядят" in this World Cup.

    Re: World Cup

    I watch select WC matches. It's very interesting to follow Argentina progress with Maradona as their head coach.
    England has not performed well so far unlike Slovenia. I am looking forward to seeing these two teams together on the pitch.

    At work, they show the England games in the office on a large screen that's mounted on a wall and normally used to monitor various statistics for the company.

    England just beat Slovenia (or was it Slovakia?) today....

    Interesting collection of countries that qualified and not qualified... Ghana, North Korea, Ivory Coast... But no Russia, India or China.

    Re: World Cup

    Лично я болею против Аргентины (особенно) и Италии. Итальянцы-то ладно, а вот Марадону я не люблю с тех пор,как он рукой гол забил не помню уж в каком году!
    И традиционно болею за Германию и Англию.

    Why do you support Germany?
    I "kind of" support England but to be honest I don't care much... (having a very negative day)

    Было в 86 году против Великобритании. Сам Марадона очень гордится тем голом! Гол называется "Рука Бога". И вот его второй гол в том же матче был просто невероятный.
    Марадона мне нравится. Когда играл в Италии был совершенно лучший футболист мира. Если бы не опозорился кокаином...

    Re: World Cup

    I watched the first half. Two nice goals by Japan. They dominated the field in general. The Danish team is way too old. Can't believe they still let Jan Dahl Tomasson play. In professional football, you can just forget about it when you turn 30.
    Well, unless you are Paolo Maldini or something.

    Re: World Cup

    Portugal - Brazil - I'm looking forward to see this match. They say that Portugal has no chances but we'll see.

    Re: World Cup

    Being American, I'm fairly clueless about soccer. Vegas odds have USA winning their next game.

    It's interesting to see highlights on ESPN's SportCenter waiting for Baseball Today.
    I'm easily amused late at night...

    It should be a good match but they'll most likely both advance.

    Anyone else feel really really bad for North Korea (7:0 OUCH!)
    Kim Jong Il will personally cane them probably


    BTW Ramil your signature makes me laugh every time I see it

    Yes, they will, but still this is going to be a good match. Seeing it would allow me to judge if Brazil is qualified to be the next champion.

    Kim Jong Il will personally cane them probably
    They will probbly all get executed when they come back to North Korea
