According to the press here when England loses again it'll be because of El Nino.  It definately won't have anything to do with them not being good enough, nope.  That's why England hasn't won since 1966 and never won before 1966 - fuckin' El Nino every time.

I just love how the excuses have started before the the first match of the Cup has even been played, usualy we have to wait until England's actually been eliminated before the excuses come.

Also, why is it called the World Cup when the prize isn't a cup?  Shouldn't it be the World Trophy?

For comparison here's the European Cup: actually a cup...


And the world cup: not a cup...

I'm assuming it used to be a cup but they got a new trophy.  But now the name makes no sense, the whole event is shambles and a lie I tell ya!

I'm kind of meh on the whole thing, but I might get together with friends to watch when Argentina plays. There are worse ways to spend time.

USA is getting bounced out of groups.

Ironbite-hope DC United doesn't have a lot of World Cup players on their team.

Does anyone like the songs that Shakira makes for FIFA World Cup?  I know that this year Pit Bull is doing the official song for FIFA, but Shakira did a song anyway.  I'm guessing because so many asked.

People are now claiming that the World Cup 2014 logo looks like the Patrick Stewart facepalm picture.





What do you all think?

Vaguely, yes.

Bloody Chile,

And we're likely to get soundly spanked by Holland and Spain.

I like to think that whoever did that already had the design planned out and just waited to see which two countries would fit best.
