World Cup 2014
« on: June 21, 2014, 10:07:43 PM »
I don't watch much soccer (football) even though it is the world's sport, but I find the World Cup enthralling.  The competition is so intense.  So much importance for each game.  Also, USA can advance out of group play with a win tomorrow so suck it England and Spain (both eliminated already).  I don't care how corrupt the system is, it is good television.

EDIT:  This is big enough to live outside of the sports thread.

USA will probably advance even with a tie.

Bosnia got cheated by the officials in tonight's game.  Worst officiating ever.

It seems like everyone is getting worked up over nothing. It's so serene to not give a fuck about sports.
when you try to mock anyone while also running the flat earth society. Lol

While I agree, it's also pretty nice to follow sports and have an interest in games without being emotionally dependent. The athletes are incredible. Your country played extremely well. You should find a video of Cahill's goal (an Australian player) against the Netherlands. It will go down as the best goal of the tournament. I am sure of that.

What a crushing goal by Portugal in the last 30 seconds to come away with a tie.  USA is still in a good spot, but they should've closed it out today.

Is anyone else seeing "since when did America care about soccer" or "if the USA wins then the sport is officially called soccer" facebook posts? It's more annoying than just regular sports posts. STFU and let people enjoy a sport that's not American football.

Haha. Heaps of drama on Reddit because of that match.

I'm much in the same position as Parsifal, but that's actually pretty damn lol-worthy

Welp, Australia just got wrecked by Spain. Goes to show the difference that lacking a couple of key players can make. I wonder who I should give a crap about now.

Yeah that's probably a good suggestion. Reddit seems to explode with drama no matter what happens with the USA team, so it's at least entertaining.

Yes, USA is very polarizing in that regard.  Super drama in the group as well with so many possible outcomes.

USA is in a pretty good spot. We are 3 points up on Ghana and Portugal and our goal differential is 2 above Ghana and 5 above Portugal. I find it interesting that FIFA and most leagues consider goal differential as a tie breaker in front of head-to-head competition. It makes for very interesting finishes.

"Team USA's soccer teams coach is a trader cause he is German and has to try and beat his home country by playing as the team thats Country has the alot of other country's in the world by there nuts."

-somebody on Facebook

Part II: I replied "Very well said. What is he trading though?" to which he said "That's a stupid ass question, I just answered that in my status, you ask to many questions that's answers are right in front of you". I now understand the World Cup 2014.
