Pulling people out of the ditc...
yes folks, you heard it right, the greatest sporting event in the world is a mere 30-days away. This gives you plenty of time to start cracking wise about how soccer/football is rife with cheaters, only surpassed by your favorite NFL team's biggest rival. Since the USA did not make it, you will need to find a replacement country to cheer for. Do you go with an ancestral nation? A previous winner? pull for the underdog?

i'm picking Belgium, if for no other reason than they make mighty fine beer in their country...

so come one in, have a beer, pick up a vuvezela, and make some noise...

We're going to be in Amsterdam during the final - I expect it will be a blast whoever is playing (go Netherlands!)

Alas, we have to wait until next year for the Women's World Cup to see a truly excellent American team, who still get paid a pittance compared the men who couldn't qualify.

I'm going with my daughter-in-law's country, Mexico.

I jumped over to Amsterdam for a few days when I was in Germany for the 2006 World Cup. Lots of orange. hup Holland hup! Great time.

I'll talk soccer with you Happy. When the US isn't playing I'm always pulling for Portugal (ancestry).

I have to admit....i couldn't care less about whatever the current name of the pro soccer league in the U.S. is (MLS?) or European League soccer or any of that.....but i have grown to really appreciate and enjoy watching the World Cup.

RJ - yes, one game tomorrow for opening, then 2 per day for the next 2 weeks, essentially, then into the round of 16 back to one-per day...and then from the world cup we go straight to the Tour de France - once every 4 years is a true sport fans dream for back to back greatest 2 sports on the planet...

Ed - i've been watching the Thursday night darts on BBC, i have to say it is quite intriguing...possibly the craziest fans of any sport i have seen (is it even a sport?)

I have to say, as a sports fan, if soccer and bicycle racing were the ONLY two sports on the planet, I'd no longer be a sports fan.
