    Default June's Theme - Embracing the World Cup

    While soccer may not be a big thing here in the states, we know that's not true world wide. Courtesy of Falcon Horus, we can all enjoy a bit of sporting fun as we have a soccer theme for a bit.

    So grab a ball, beverage of your choice and cheer on your favorite team.

    I love it!

    So, I'm coach ... hm, lets think about who I want to be.
    Not Loew for sure but maybe the Icelandic coach. He's a dentist in "real" life. Sounds interesting

    *giggles*

    Yay! Belgium is gearing up to our first match on Monday against Panama. Almost all offices will guaranteed be watching or streaming it somewhere.

    Russia opened against Saudi-Arabia today. They won 5 to zip, and are the first team to score 3 points in their group. Unfortunately, they still have to play the better teams in their group, Egypt & Uruguy.

    While I'm obviously cheering for our national Red Devils team, I'll also be cheering for Iceland. Those players probably had to take days off from work to go and play the World Cup.

    Just checking to see what I am.

    I'm a goalkeeper. Would be better if my favorite club team's 'keeper hadn't given up three today to Portugal.

    Did you not say it is played on ice, O'Neill?

    Portugal equally gave three to Spain.

    Messi, for sure, will have cursed the Icelandic goalkeeper as he stopped his penalty.

    Iceland totally gave Argentina hell --> 1-1 (not what Messi and his possy imagined, I'm betting)

    Oye vey, sometimes I wanna smack those Belgian devils upside the head. What started as a snorefest in the first 47 minutes, became an exhilirating second half of the game. My favorite player made the first goal, and two followed in its wake.

    That's 3-0 in the game Belgium - Panama. Although the Panama team certainly deserved a goal too. They were pretty decent players though they may want to ease up on the faults cause you really don't want to collect too many yellow cards in a game -- and they had 6 players with a yellow card each. And two yellows make a red and that means sitting the next game out.

    As long as there are no broken bones... or permanent injuries.

    LOL'd at one of the Panama players near the end though. He had muscle cramps and just sat down in the middle of the field, instead of on the side. The ref had to shoo him off.

    Well, the group phases are coming to an end. Most of the qualifiers are known.

    Portugal apparently came close to not making it through the next round, after a bysmal display in their game against Iran. Nevertheless, so far Russia, Uruguay, Spain and Portugal are through to the next round, so is Germany, Belgium and England (although, these last two still have to battle who takes the group win -- that will be thursday evening).

    Well, I was worthy of my title today (points at "coach") -- by the gods, I think I'll have to apologize to all the neighbors in the block for shouting so loud and cursing at the players tonight.

    But dammit, they needed it.

    I'm rooting for Sweden in their game against Switzerland, and England vs Colombia. The first I'll start watching in 26 minutes from now, the latter I'll catch at home... Life stream at work... everybody's out of the office around 4 anyway so not bothering anyone with it.

    Apologies to Morena Baccarin for beating Brazil in the World Cup. Didn't quite believe they could do it, but I was proven wrong. Onwards to meet France next (for whom I would have cheered if Brazil had beaten us).
