World Cup

There needs to be a World Cup thread! So, who will advance to the semis? Germany or USA? Senegal or Turkey? Spain or Korea? England or Brazil? Don't know, don't care?

I think there should be a Loser Cup too. That way I can watch Finland and the Philippines play.

1. because it is the worlds most popular sport.

2. I think Germany will come out the winner of the match on Friday, but it would be nice to see the USA set another record for itself in the same cup.

As for the Finland vs. Philippines match. It would be a close one.

I watch the usa games when i catch them on tv. All i really know is that its an embarrassment for any country that loses to, or ties in a match with the US team. Im happy they made it this far.

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

its completely amazing how Futbol means soo much to the rest of the world, but here in the states it rates less popular than dirt. People sacrifice their children/jobs/lives for it everywhere else.

just my 2 cents

Not everyone in the rest of the world is interested in football.
I certainly am not interested in it. 22 grown men chasing a bag of wind around a field !!! What a waste of time.
The only interest i showed was delight that Brazil put England out

Almost all sports involve grown men chasing things around whether that be a football, hockey puck or a golf ball. So by naefearjustbeer's line of thinking nearly every sport would be a waste of time. Anything can be simplified to that point, such as:
1. What's the point of racing? They just drive in circles!
2. What's the point of studying math? The till does everything!
3. What's the point of shagging? You only get tired!
What a waste of time!

Good football\soccer displays intense athleticism and strategy, and that is where the value and entertainment is for me.

It is the most popular sport for watching in my country but you will find it is not the sport that has the most active participents. Try Fishing or Angling it is the biggest particpation sport in my country and probally the world.
I.e. football is an excuse to sit on your arse and shout racist comments and sectarian songs for 90 minites whilst drinking copius amounts of alcohol. How many people get attacked or stabbed or have bottles thrown at them just because of the colour of their shirt when they are out fishing.
