Oooo an official thread, can you guys get rid of the trademark so I can make knockoff threads?


I'd love to see England get knocked out early, it would make my heart grow so many more sizes (which would probably lead to some sort of heartattack, but it'd be worth it.)

If Portugal players headbutt, what on earth do Greek players do?

I haven't seen England play yet. So I'm looking forward to the game today.

I thought they looked ok at times against Italy.  It was a fun game to watch.

Rooney speaking

Rooney, this is Louis van Gaal.

How are you today, sir?

footballstreams.org

Well, you've had a bit of bad luck this tournament as we have noticed.

i2.cdnds.net

Yeah I know, and man, I'm all broken up, boy, what a blow.

static.foxsports.com

Yeah. Yeah. Well, uh, it's been a tough tournament and we got a lot of team business to take care of, so if you wouldn't mind losing today, I'd appreciate it.

media.tumblr.com

Uh, yeah, sure, no I'd be happy to.

Passed out last night after the long drive so I forgot to submit something. I'm always one to put "your" in the title which makes the FWC group laugh since it is "your World Cup" thread.

Then again, I'll be too busy crying and whining when England blows it today anyhow.

Pregaming with the Pat Riley news conference. Should I be reading too much into him saying you have to have the guts to come back and keep fighting? Is he indicating that maybe LeBron is leaning away from Miami (or gave him no indication)? He's usually a fair amount of running out the door, running away details.

Lessee, I have one sister married to a limey, two divorced from limeys, and two brothers living in London, so that one will be fun regardless of the outcome. I have a sister-in-law from the Ivory Coast, but I also really like coffee, so that's a tough one. I met a guy from Japan once, so there's that.
 
2014-06-19 11:11:46 AM  
I think england survives today with a tie just to drag out the heart wrenching agony of blowing in in their 3rd game
 
2014-06-19 11:12:04 AM  
I just want to watch more Rooneys in hopes of seeing that rarest one of all, the 11 Rooney.

I've been watching the replays after work on WatchESPN, but has anyone else noticed they show the winners of the game celebrating as the graphic for the match?

Sort of, I dunno, ruins the point of actually watching the replay.
 
2014-06-19 11:14:58 AM  
England has to win so we get more Rooney.


Dammit, Rooney!

No way England let their fans off easy by making the final group game irrelevant.  If they don't advance, it'll be in as painful a manner possible.

That's how I have it looking

I hope Uruguay wins.
 
2014-06-19 11:18:04 AM  
Uruguay and England are both desperate.

Should be good watching.

Is Suarez in today?

yes sir.  he's got the chompers ready to attack.

Thanks! I was working on the whole back and forth, but it was getting long. Figured I didn't want to overplay it.

I clicked on "Full Leaderboard", and apparently the Fark group is #1 for all mini leagues. Ahead of even "Pig & Whistle San Francisco", "Durham Recreational Sports League", and "Game of Thongs".

Any particular reason why? It's not like they're a very good team or were expecting to get out of the group, after all. When the draw was made, the majority of English media seemed to think that it'd be Italy & Uruguay advancing.

It would be par for the course this World Cup if England was eliminated.  I don't see Greece or Japan getting the full 3 points today.  Columbia is a favorite.  Why am I caring about this again?

Rarefied air we're breathing. Most people wouldn't dare utter Fark and "Game of Thongs" in the same paragraph.
