@CalamityJane,
I don't actually expect Italy to win, and I've heard, cough, that they are big crybabies (though I've read that about a lot of teams).

I hate to be boring, but Brazil.
Ain't gonna be as pretty as in years gone by, though.
Well, that's what they say.

All soccer players = crybabies as all soccer fans/hooligans = barbarians and murderous hordes.

Those are just the facts of life. Surprised

@mars90000000,
I'd love it to be Portugal, but since that's not really an option, it had to be Brazil.

Luckily there's a decent-sized Brazilian community here in Toronto, so there will be people to celebrate with Mr. Green Drunk Mr. Green

The big game today is England against United States. The game begins in about two hours!

Yeah wandel! It starts 11:30 PST here.

8 years ago, I was in a Munich beergarden when the United States played Germany. It was such a good game and the Americans played better than the
Germans, despite losing to them.

what IS the world cup?
are you guys in america? i think it is soccer, but americans dont watch soccer do they? i didnt remember any when i was there, and i only left seven years ago.

does anyone have any idea where soccer would rank (if it does) among the most popular sports in usa? i never knew a single american in my really long life that was a soccer fan. i dont recall seeing soccer scores on the television news. i would say football, baseball, basketball and hockey are the top four, and others i know americans follow are not the kind of thing they have bumper stickers and bobble head dolls for...i mean not team sports, like race cars, horses, golf...

i am not at all into sports, but i think i would remember anyone mentioning soccer...i thought it was a ball kids played with in school...i am sports ignorant-care to enlighten me? i am having an argument with an indian who says (because he knows there was a world cup in america) soccer is popular in america. he also thinks football and soccer are the same thing, but we will tackle that issue another time.

@salima,
salima, the entire world is in soccer fever - except the United States.
Some of us (me) are living in the United States but we have different nationalities (I am German) - therefore, the soccer fever spills over into a2k as well.
