And the World Cup opener is today!


I couldn't reach my boy, and he left his cell at home today, but I believe that any and all people who are interested may find him (and others) at the McGlynns in Pike Creek at noon (in twenty minutes, YIKES!) to watch the opener - Germany most likely creaming Costa Rica.

Also, we are debating if we are taking off on Monday, and if so, how much, to go see when USA tries to rise to the occasion and pit up against Czech Republic (one of the highest ranked teams in the world) at noon to open.

Obviously we never won those WC tickets we had hoped for.. *sigh*

Woo Germany! I'm rooting for them because they have the best beer of the World Cup. Also, they have the home ice advantage or whatever those guys play on.

I just came from the game, and at 70 minutes, Germany was whipping up on Costa Rica 3 to 1. Also, I have an update - Markley is staying at the McGlynn's in Pike Creek for the 3:00 pm game as well, so I will probably be heading over there around 4pm myself (again) Smile.

Are there any streaming video web-sites that will be airing the US-CR game today as I'm at work with no TV?

I found that bbc said it will stream for the UK, I don't know if you can get in on that. My little plugin in firefix is so cute - it has a popup that goes GOAL!! - <team name> like when Australia just scored.

Google is doing live updates on it's homepage, but I haven't found a stream yet, sorry.

darn them for forgetting to show up to the game... darn them I say!

The closest I found was the match tracker on http://www.ussoccer.com/, sorry.

[sarcasm] Now we only have to beat Italy on Saturday. Should be a piece of cake. [/sarcasm]

Dude is it asking too much that the US actually score a goal??

To be fair, they did get it into the other guys net once, but it didn't stand. And, that was with 9 men to Italy's 10, so keeping the score tied while down a man the entire half is pretty good.

Hopefully this thursday will see a scoring game.

BTW: how do we get into the next round? US beats Ghana, Czechs beat Italy I understand, but won't that lead to a tie w/Italy on the records that gets broken by goal diff? Doesn't that mean that the US team needs to win by like 3 goals? Maybe I don't understand the tiebreakers.

Here's what I remember from ESPN:
The US has a -3 goal diff, Chech Republic has a +1 and Italy has a +2
So regardless, the US has to beat Ghana.
If Italy beats the Czech Republic we advance.
If the Czech Republic beats Italy, we have to beat Ghana by 5.
If they tie, we have to beat Ghana by 4.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's it.
