Now it gets interesting, this is a lot higher quality than the first round - which had a lot pretenders - so I hope those new to soccer will tune in and give it a chance.

I am headed off in about an 45 minutes to the local pub to watch the game—France vs Germany. I am rooting for the Germans to make the semifinals for the third straight time. Deutschland über alles—at least for the rest of the tournament.

Thanks for the ping! I had been using GOOGLE for the daily match updates but they have apparently dropped it from their home page.

Alemania!
Colombia!
Argentina!
Costa Rica!

(It just dawned on me that *potentially* Colombia and Costa Rica *could* meet in the Final, the way the brackets are designed. Note I said “could” and “potentially”).

That’s probably because it’s the 4th of July — maybe they’ll continue it tomorrow and for the Semis and the Final.

I have a question for everybody.

I am an American, USA.

I came to France on May 1, 2 months ago to live and check the place out. My kids are all up and out and I am a computer consultant, so I can work anywhere, so why not, right? I live between the Gare du Nord and the Gare de l’Est train stations, in the paki/indy section of Paris. I don’t speak a lick of French.

I went to the store this morning and noticed somebody had hung dozens of French flags over the streets. The girl at the grocery store claims that the flags are because of the big French vs German World Cup game tonight. My original thought the flags had been put up in preparation for Bastille Day, July 14th. I don’t know and I am curious about this.

Anyway, my real question is this:

What time is the game going to be played in Brazil and is it being aired live here in France?

The girl at the grocery store said it would be on at 6 PM tonight (two hours from now). That would make it around 2 PM in Rio. I am assuming it is being broadcast here live.

Do they schedule these games times to coincide with the largest prime time viewership of the countries competing? When would they schedule a game to be played and aired live between 2 countries that have very different time zones?

Or will they sometimes be aired as a “tape delay” in some countries?

Just curious.

If we follow the sport, can we still complain about the ugly trophy :?

Agreed. It must be so frustrating to have gotten all the way to the Final on 3 different ocassions, only to lose.

(Even though I’m pissed off at Robben for being such a drama queen bitch against Mexico.)

The Brazil corner-kick clears the schmozzle (?) in the box & lands at the feet of an unmarked Silva who puts away the opening goal vs. Colombia.

Tears welled my eyes when David Luiz and Dani Alves of Brazil hugged and comforted Colombia’s James Rodriguez — SUCH SPORTSMANSHIP!

P.S. I noticed that the Spanish version of GOOGLE had the WC doodle yesterday — and today (Saturday) the U.S. version is back with the WC doodle as well....

And ... it’s back! Cute design for the Argentina vs Belgium match.

There was a great pic of Lukuku and Howard after the USA-Belgium game, of course them being teammates at Everton.

Sidebar: I’m really disappointed that for some reason my local cable system is now providing the Toronto CBC coverage in Standard Def instead of HD – quite a difference, esp. w/ the vid caps.

A number of missed opportunities all around, but the Belgian keeper was superb to avoid a larger margin… ‘Looks like we’re headed toward the desired South American confrontations ;)

Netherlands vs Costa Rica ... what an amazing game! Soccer at its finest. Netherlands wins in the shoot out.

Masterful stroke for the Dutch coach to put in the fresh, lanky GK for the Penalty kicks ... He did stop two, but came very close to getting a hand on the other 3 Costa Rican attempts.

A fine defensive-minded effort by the Central Americans, however the Netherlands were often their own worst enemy during the match, e.g. 15 offsides.

Heck of a game, a lot of heart by the underdog Costa Ricans. Dutch switch to a taller goalie for the shoot out and it pays off.

This semi-final is deja vu all over again. At this point I’m rooting for the Dutch. If they don’t win, they better finish 3rd or 4th, or the nation may commit suicide.
