picodenico: harleyquinnical: blottoman: I wish they had the English translation of all the countries national anthems at the bottom of the screen.

/inquiring minds want to know

Just listen to the music...I really liked the Uruguayan anthem, as if it was lifted from an opera.

When I hear other anthems it makes me realize how lame the USA anthem in.


The US anthem stands between two camps. It's not slow enough to be sung by the entire crowd like God Save the Queen or Flower of Scotland nore upbeat enough to sound cool with a band like the Italian one..

Retsam: Mrtraveler01: eddievercetti: Mrtraveler01: desertgeek: ocirats: While we're waiting for the next match...

Stephen H. Webb on why soccer isn't catching on in the U.S.:   troll?  He also wrote an article in the WSJ in 2009, pretty much saying the same thing - I can't link it since fark won't let me, but easily found on google.

TV ratings for EPL matches on NBC were well above what FOX Soccer and ESPN2 were ever able to accomplish. TV ratings for Thursday's WC opener were well up compared to 4 years ago. He says these things, but the evidence clearly points to him being wrong.

NBC actually promoted it. Fox just stuck most of the games on Fox Soccer with little or no promotion and only recently started to air some of the bigger games on the Fox Network.

I'm really worried about how Fox is going to handle the World Cup in 2018 and 2022.

They'll likely push all the games to FOX Sports 1 and it's soccer channel.

Probably, once people figure out where Fox Sports 1 is on their lineup.

I watch their coverage of the UEFA Champions League and some of it is good and some of it is just painful to watch.

So Gus Johnson doing World Cup commentary?  Well that WILL!!!BE!!! SOMETHING!! to watch.


I'm cringing already.

picodenico: Wow, there's only 1 man alive from the Uruguayan 1950 world cup championship team. That's rather surprising.


There are only two alive from 1954's German team.

Fat Old Broad:

Did you see the Buzzfeed piece about the Spanish team?   Gorgeous!

That is very nice indeed - thanks for the tip, I hadn't seen it!

A lot of empty seats at mid field.

wut? our anthem is the bomb. pun intended.

And yeah harley I did like it, just would like to see the lyrics.

At least I get Fox Sports 1.  I don't get NBC Sports.  Even though I get all the other cable channels they showed the last Winter Olympics on.

Masta Beta: A lot of empty seats at mid field.


BBC says there's a lot of traffic issues in the area and police have a 2km (1.25 mile) security ring around the stadium.
 
2014-06-14 03:11:32 PM  
Even though they aren't playing today, do I take the VonTrapps scarf? Yes, no?
 
2014-06-14 03:11:47 PM  
Wait, what?  How is that not a penalty shot or something?  That was an incredibly blatant hand ball in the box.

Musically it's boring as hell. Nothing about it entices the listener or makes any sort of enthusiastic push.

It's a pub drinking song with rewritten lyrics.  The only way it will ever sound good is if there is a huge crowd of drunks.

Player was pushed by an opponent before.

So, in a big stadium.

That "mate" stuff is quite deadly.  They all drink it.

After an even more blatant push in the back causing the hand ball.
 
2014-06-14 03:15:34 PM  
Did he just say a player is named Gargamel?
 
2014-06-14 03:16:16 PM  
No goal but nobody in the stands to notice
 
2014-06-14 03:16:20 PM  
As good as Uruguay is, I can't believe Diego Lugano, who wasn't even good enough to get on the field much at West f*cking Brom, is still their starting CB.
 
2014-06-14 03:16:39 PM  

picodenico: Did he just say a player is named Gargamel?


Hey, we had the Hulk on Thursday, why not Gargamel?

If they played it at the end rather than the beginning...or maybe at half time.
 
2014-06-14 03:17:09 PM  
Jesus, Cavani, I can do that.
 
2014-06-14 03:17:27 PM  
Wow Uruguay not doing well with the chances here.
 
2014-06-14 03:17:47 PM  
Huge shank by Cavani.
 
2014-06-14 03:17:57 PM  
Uruguay is saving all their goals for the semi finals. Or next week. Or something.

Yep.

This strategy does nothing for my prediction of this game.  I didn't think Costa Rica would have such fight and ball luck on their side.

Well, the hand ball was caused by the fact that he was sticking his hands straight up into the air.
But I get the prior penalty nullification, just didn't see it.  Maybe I need to refill the coffee tank.
 
2014-06-14 03:20:26 PM  
Costa Rica ? more like Diva rica
 
2014-06-14 03:21:48 PM  
Both teams look nervous and prone to bad mistakes.
 
2014-06-14 03:23:28 PM  
Oh shiat
 
2014-06-14 03:23:28 PM  
Handball. PK Uruguay.
 
2014-06-14 03:24:01 PM  
I agree with calling the foul on that challenge, but I'm not sure it was worth a card...and my feed broke up just at the whistle and the announcer claiming a PK.
 
2014-06-14 03:24:07 PM  
Sorry, not handball. Wrestling.
 
2014-06-14 03:24:13 PM  
Ah, a Martin Skrtel-esque tackle.
 
2014-06-14 03:24:20 PM  
Hugging.  PK Uruguay.
 
2014-06-14 03:24:26 PM  
Nice tackle for American Football
 
2014-06-14 03:24:36 PM  
BOOM
 
2014-06-14 03:24:42 PM  
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
 
2014-06-14 03:24:43 PM  
PK GOAL!  Uruguay 1-0
 
2014-06-14 03:25:01 PM  
Uruguay 1 - 0 Costa Rica

Univision GOOOOOOOOOAL Time: 9 Seconds
 
2014-06-14 03:25:07 PM  
That is how you score
 
2014-06-14 03:25:19 PM  
Cavani goal
 
MBK [TotalFark]
2014-06-14 03:25:41 PM  
That was the right call for the PK.  You can't wrap your arms around the guy, especially on a set piece like that.  Was it a dive?  Impossible to tell, you see the defenders BOTH arms hug the player and tackle him.
 
2014-06-14 03:26:01 PM  

noblehammer16: Hugging.  PK Uruguay.


Hah, best description
 
2014-06-14 03:26:40 PM  
That was probably the fairest PK awarded so far.
 
2014-06-14 03:26:41 PM  

MmmmBacon: How long until the US team gets crushed, and we can go back to ignoring the World Cup?


Monday, unless they win. Then we're in "So they have a chance" territory.
 
2014-06-14 03:27:03 PM  
Not all is lost for Costa Rica just yet. Joel Campbell still has an egregious dive in him somewhere.
 
2014-06-14 03:28:00 PM  
No, there no debate about it. That was an easy call, doofus.

Nice shot there.
