Gosling: eddievercetti: Must be hot as balls right now in Brazil.

74 degrees in Belo Horizonte. Perfect conditions.

Remember it's winter in the Southern Hemisphere. It's either actually quite chilly for them, or they're close enough to the equator where seasons aren't really a thing.


So techinally, they're playing in the winter. Maybe a Qatar World Cup in January doesn't sound silly at all.

Explain that to UEFA and every other country to re schedule  their soccer seasons except for the US

The Algerian defense is much more stifling than I thought it would be.

who else thought Casey Keller was having a private laugh when he said yesterday of Iran, "they like to keep it tight in the back"?  because it isn't like Iran has been crackign down on homosexuality or anything.

marius2: Gonz: Germany's going to beat everyone 4-1, inexplicably lose in the semifinals, and then win the consolation game 4-1.

It's what they do.

Yeah, I know, it's just hard to except :(


Unless, of course, by some miracle England reach the semis where they will lose to Germany.

This game desperately needs a Belgium goal to open things up.

I'd love to open up a Belgian ale in solidarity, but it is far, far too early

That's not a temperature thing (even though it is). It's more a 'break the schedule of nearly every everybody that has even a dreamer's chance of qualifying or sending anyone from their domestic league to play for a nation that might qualify' thing.

Imagine if the Olympics demanded that MLB hold the World Series in May so all its players would be available to play (and expected to play) as a condition of baseball getting back on the program. Think about how much that would break baseball. That's how much a winter World Cup would break soccer.

Gosling: Fun fact: Mark Geiger, the American ref, will be the first ref of the Cup called upon to work a second match as, on the back of the Colombia/Greece game, he's been assigned to Spain/Chile.


Good for him. I saw a few comments online commending his work on Saturday from fans and pundits so it's good to see FIFA recognize that as well.

Not watching this match due to some errends I have to run, but my predictions today are:

BEL 2-1 ALG
BRA 2-1 MEX
RUS 1-1 KOR

Rev.K: Today is my first day back at work and the first day I won't be able to see any of the games live.

*sad panda*


And now I'm off to the media quarantine.


We have all the games projectedlive from ESPN on the wall about 12 feet from my desk here. I've seen more live games at work than I have at home or in a bar.

Come on, guys, don't be the center-back-to-wing-center-holds-it guys. Iran and Nigeria were those guys. Don't be those guys. Take a shot once in a while.

i have a serious problem that i was hoping fark could help me with as ive never had to deal with something like this before.

a buddy of mine came into my house a couple weeks ago and i didnt notice he was wearing an old ManU Rooney away jersey until he was leaving and saw that horrid '10' on his back.

is there some sort of hex or incense or pagan ritual i can do to get rid of the essence, or can i act civil and remove this type of thing with an industrial-strength cleanser of some sort???

thx

rickythepenguin: you don't *have* to actually have the kid in the shot. you just suggest that while Bradley's pissing, he's holding the kid's hand with his non-dick hand.



Or, you could just have shot A of them walking into the bathroom, then Shot B shows them release each other's hand, then taking a piss, then Shot C them washing their hands, then holding hands again.

or, you could further have some comedy by shwoing Bradley all dressed to impress on a date in a bar, some nice jeans, sexy shirt, nice shoes, talking to a hot woman in the bar, then pull the camera back and you see him holding hands with the same kid, dressed exactly like Bradley, while munching a kids' plate and nursing a shirley temple / glass of milk.

ESPN IF YOU DON'T DO THIS I WILL

Martin Shirtpull maneuver did not fly. Good job ref.

Their fans may not have to burn banknotes this time!

Like my Dad always said, don't tackle an Algerian in the box.

Yellow to Belgium.

Shot from the spot for Algeria.

GOAL ALGERIA

Stupid, pointless penalty. Terrible play from the left back.

Gosling: Kia's ad campaign:

'Hello, American boys. I am Adriana Lima. I am so hot life is possible 93 million miles away from me. You are all soccer fans this month, is that clear?'
'(droningly) yes, Adriana Lima.'

Futbol makes you want to make babies.

/knew that Belgium was overrated
//but I'd be surprised if they were lose-to-Algeria overrated

I'm at work cleaning up 1000's of files that our new billing software corrupted. It only corrupted all the clients email accounts. You know how fun it is playing the game is it a 2, @, . , or _ in an email address. It sucks but i get paid to listen to soccer so its all good

Brazil had one in the opener, although the penalty was BS.

Yes, Algeria now has that dreaded 0-1 lead off of PK that most teams have been unable to keep.

Umm...

No? Brazil was gifted the opening game with a penalty.

They appear to be whistling at the Belgians. Crowd seems very pro Algeria.

i love the pregame shows, with the hot as fark Mexican women dressed up in each country's traditional clothing.  last world cup they had this german chick on in one of those dirndls or lederhosens, whatever, and she had glorious tatties.
