Damned court will keep me from watching. Hope it's on the radio.

War Croatia! War Ireland!

Croatia def. Italy 1-0 in a stunner

Spain def. Ireland 3-0 in a snoozer

Italian-Irish here...

Not expecting Ireland to put up any fight at all. As for Italy, they can barely score at all (and I'm pissed at them for all the match-fixing shiat anyway). At least they have Buffon in net.

So, this should go swimmingly.

Come on Croatia and Ireland! Hopeful for the first, but not the second. Just hoping for good games.

I like Italy's anthem, it sounds so Italian.

You'll never beat the Irish!

Much as I'd like to see Ireland avenge being cheated out of the last WC by Les Bleus (ptoeey!) and go forward it's Spain's game to lose today.

Will be watching Ireland v Spain in my local with dad and my brothers.

Come On You Boys In Green!!!

orange storm: I like Italy's anthem, it sounds so Italian.


I swore it was from a Verdi opera before I looked it up.

And how can a culture that gave us opera, Michelangelo, Dante, Ferrari, etc, invent the most boring form of soccer known to man? English kick-and-run is understandable, the English are pragmatic and tacky. But come on Italy. Less Machiavelli, more Raphael.

"Monkey chants" from the Croat fans very clear when Balotelli had possession attacking 'their' goal

Pirlo's just one of those once-in-a-lifetime talents.
 
2012-06-14 12:41:42 PM  
Pirlo has probably been the best midfielder of the competition so far.

and it seems like uefa is going oprah style with the fines. you get a fine. you get a fine. everyone gets a fine.

WARSAW, Poland (AP) -- UEFA has fined the German soccer association $12,550 because fans threw paper missiles at Portugal players during a European Championship match. ... UEFA also fined the Portuguese federation $6,275 because the team was late for the second half.

they looked more like balls than missiles to me. and should throwing things at the farkfaces be illegal?
 
2012-06-14 01:15:42 PM  
Also, Torres starting for Spain. I thought Del Bosque would play a striker this time, but I guess I was wrong.

Similar to Seattle I see. Difference is they aren't as hip about it while drinking $5 espressos in paper cups.

Second hand smoke not only kills, it screws up soccer games. Is there no end to it's treachery?
 
2012-06-14 01:32:17 PM  
That was a fantastic goal. Missed the first half of the game, looks like it's been a good one though.

are you saying that because i know that there are racists in eastern europe that i'm being prejudiced. next you'll tell me that if i say there are lots of black people in mississippi i'm racist. what the fark? i never said all eastern europeans are racist.

Because the same demo goes to soccer games in Europe as the US. Oh wait, they're pretty different.

And now with the news of Redknapp's sacking, neither will Modric or Bale in all likelihood...

I'm saying you made a sweeping generalization (much like I did, in jest) based on a bunch of idiots at a soccer game and another user's comment.

So yeah, you are prejudiced or at the very least an idiot.

I hope this doesn't start a mass exodus. It'd be nice if Spurs made an attempt to be a contender, rather then selling all their players. There was a story this morning that Barca isn't going to bid on Bale cause the asking price is too much. I could see Modric leaving though, sad as that is.

Sure there is. But that is a very poor measure, which was my point. Eastern Europe is poor and uneducated. Poor and uneducated people are more racist. That's the common link.
