Yay, if I'm still alive!

What will results be this year? I have a work contest with my European peers. Need to choose the final 4. Was just going to Google it!


So I’ve got 8 years to save thousands. I went in 94, its a great event.

I’ve got Belguim winning, they’re an upcoming team with lots of talented players. They beat Potugal to get there. Spain* beats England in the other semi.

But I’m never right, so you can't go wrong with the usual suspects, Germany, Brazil, France...

* Spain just fired the manager so I’m sure that may cause some problems for them.

Thanks Roywhite!


Germany, they won last time? Statistically, Germany won't win back to back. Brazil is the favored to win, just machine learning outcome so no guarantee.


Argentina Iceland tied at 1. Good game going on now in the 35th minute.


You see a lot of ties in the first pool games … teams just playing it safe to make sure they advance … the REAL tournament has yet to start.

Germany wasn't playing it safe. They just couldn't connect and Mexico exploited a weakness and won.


Nobody wants to start out with a loss. By saying "playing it safe," I meant that teams who are favorites to win their pools don't mind a tie and don't take risks in an early game. I saw the game, Mexico certainly made a statement. Was happy to see it :-D

The Brazilians were happy by the Germany loss except it might mean that they play them sooner than wanted. Brazil needs to play better but they are definitely passing better than 2014.

Andy congrats, first sports post in a long time without mentioning Baltimore!


Props to Iceland but they looked like the USA at the last World Cup; hanging on but not going to make it.


US never sits 10 players behind the ball like Iceland did, its like they forgot there was another side. Great result for them. Arg wants to win next 2 to play the weaker team coming out of group C.

Love the World Cup … takes my mind off the horrible season the Orioles are having LOL … all the stuff I've posted about Hackettstown sports history … Gary Thomas … awesome Tigers' soccer … awesome Blue Streaks field hockey … and here's a guy who says all I ever write about is Baltimore. You just can't win on snarky social media :-D

Thanks. VW, that's the car with "Fahrfurgnugen" (or something that sounds like that) as I remember from radio ads in the 1980s ...

Well, if I say I'm pulling for anybody other than Italy, I'd instantly be in the doghouse with my wife and mother-in-law, and all their extended family. E-e-e-e-eh ITALIA :-D

Looked over all the groups, got all the latest news … no Italy to be found anywhere.

Ma-rone (or however you spell it, I hear it all the time).

big news from the World Cup
Moscow's beer supply is running low during the World Cup.


If they want any of ours, they'll have to pay a big-time tariff LOL

Vodka, anyone?

Is that true about the beer? Thats awful, really.
I remember in 94 at the Meadowlands it was a huge party, a lot of fun, with the Norwegians enjoying the suds more than anybody.

Ronaldo putting a huge stamp on being best in the world, Messi needs a huge game for reputation and country to advance.

It's not just Moscow; it's pretty much all of Europe and it's due to CO2 shortages. Chicken processing plants in Britain could need to shut down as well.
