world cup 2010 South Africa!
« on: November 17, 2009, 12:32:57 PM »
I decided i would stick this in the television thread since most folks will watch it on tv.

anyways i thought maybe a thread about the world cup was a good idea.

if anyone out there is as obsessed as i am with the world cup than they know that tommorrow the last 6 teams will qualify and we will know the slate.  then the real anticipation starts.

Im really hoping that Ireland can somehow pull an upset and knock france out.  would also like to see portugal blow it tommorrow but i have zero hope for that.

I'll put up a list of all the qualified teams once it is over tommorrow morning!

Well, England are through and that's really all I care about.  :)  It'd be nice to see Republic of Ireland get through, but they'll need a lot of luck and for France to be out of form for them to do it.

I love watching world cup soccer and soccer leagues at the highest level.

Even though there is a MSL team in Houston, I have not gone to watch it yet.    I dont even begin to understand the subtle parts of the game, or heck, even know how many people there are on the field, but I like watching World Cup.

I am liking englands chances they look pretty good when the players are fit. 

I bet a lot of folks will be betting spain to win it but i have a feeling they will blow it again not that i would hate to see em win.

Spain is always a team that should be considered, but until recently, they've always fallen short.  I don't think England will win it, no matter how dearly I'd love them to.

So the World Cup is like, HUGE in other parts of the world, right?  But here in the United States, nobody cares.

I remember that at the time of the last World Cup, I played Final Fantasy 11 (the MMORPG one) with a bunch of guys from Europe (Portugal, Germany, Belgium, Italy, England).  The linkshell (group of people, like a World of Warcraft guild) was constantly alight with excited talk about the game.

It was really cool, sociologically, seeing outside of my American bubble that way.

To quote The Onion Radio News: "Onion Sports now covers soccer and other women's sports.  See what you're missing at The Onion.com".

okay please excuse any language now i am furious.

Henry what a fucking scumbag.  france ahould be embarrassed to make it in like that.  if you haven;t seen it go look at the goal clearly offsides and then clear clear handball on henry.  what a load of shit.  its time to get video replay seriously fifa this is a disgrace.

somehow all the playoffs went against me.

okay deep breath


its definately gaining momentum in america.  all the games are on espn now.  espn even plays one english premier league match a week.  i think this world cup will get a lot of attention in the states.

Wow, just saw the replay of the "goal" on ESPN now...... THAT WAS A JOKE.

I cannot believe no one saw it live and there was no way to overturn that crap.

My Irish Half is upset.
