i tried watching the japan/brazil game, and i couldn't stay interested for the life of me. the reason why i hate soccer, is that it takes sooooooooo(OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO) goddamn long to score a friggin' goal. watching a game that is usually 0-0 for so long(and may end 0-1, OH BOY! ), is like watching snowing paint dry, ffs. i'd rather watch the backs of my eyelids while i catch some z's. at least with sleep, i know i'll be entertained sufficiently, with my dreams.

I just think that makes it a lot more exciting. A goal actually means something and takes effort.

Especially when compared to sports like handball or basketball which I find boring because scoring is a piece of cake in the game so goals are nothing special. But that's just me.

I like sports in general when they are played skillfully, even when there's no scoring. I hate too easy or too awful games. Even if my team loses, I do prefer when they lose in a match both played nice. It's very frustrating, though, having your team lose when it played better or to have it win because, in spite of playing good or bad, the other team was terrible. I see no joy in that.

Anyway, Brazil vs Belgium might be a bit more fun than the other games. And tomorrow, good luck for the teams.

Uh, 'tomorrow', you got the Picture.

The second half of Belgium-Japan was actually pretty exciting, 2 goals in rapid succession from Japan with an explosive recovery from Belgium, and let's not forget, the third goal of Belgium was scored at the 94', brutal.

But yeah, I get it if it's not your cup of cake, not every match is Germany-Brazil (How did the Germans come from that to now?)

I was sort of sad for the Germans when they lost to Korea, at the same time, kind of impressed by the asians for their will to win, even when there was no ways to continue on the WC.

And yes, I stopped working on that second half of the game, because I was hoping Japan would just impress me just like Korea, and I found very disheartening seeing them fall on the last play! Still, Belgium went for it and it was not without merit. It was just, as you say, brutal.

And German vs Brazil last cup was ... it was what it was. Germans stopped themselves for scoring more, although that performance needed to be done to place my team on their right place: to learn from the better team. However, they still lack, a lot, the sort of skill and team play I would expect them to have after 4 years. And I'm expecting, although not really hoping, another shake down. If they pass Belgium, if they face France, I think that would be another brutal ending.

And now the perfidious Albion is against Sweden, I can't believe I I'll root for those bloody Anglos, but at this point I don't want Sweden to go any further.

Anyway, I sure hope Uruguay beats France and Russia roflstomps Croatia, in the end I want Russia to triumph.

And the perfidious Albion beat the Sverigestani! Yeah! A match between two countries that I hate, but the wound from the qualifications burned more than the continuous humiliations that we endured in the last century.

And my third choice is primed and ready to go, too bad that they will have to face either my favourite still on board or the team I rationalised myself into rooting for.

But anybody that can beat France or Belgium will earn my respect for four hours, then back at angrily posturing against the tea-sippers and at reclaiming Dalmatia from those land thieves.



WHY!?

Now I have to root for the discount Italians mixed with slavs against the Perfidious Albion.
Oh well, my second choice and third choice are still available, anything to beat France.

At this point I don't really have a favorite but I'd like to see either Belgium or Croatia in the final. England vs France sounds too bland.

EDIT: Well, I got my wish. Hoping for an entertaining final.

Hahahaha, England you utter damn fools. Same idiotic mistake time and again, play like the devil himself until you score a goal, then you turn into snows trying to troll your enemy, making petty mistakes thinking 'nah we still got it', then their enemies kick the **** out of em.

It was a shameful match, the referee was clearly helping the Croatians at the end, he didn't award the corner and overlooked some fouls.

What kind of final is France-Croatia? I will have to endure my best friend gloating about France winning the cup now.

Because I tell you, the Croatians can't beat the French, as much as I hate them I have to give it to them, the French are the superior team in this matchup.


We Italians need to get back on track.

Hey, at least it's not gonna be just the 4 million Croatians rooting for their victory, they've now got the backing of us 60 million Italians, plus probably the Germans, and probably the rest of the world.

Because let's be honest, we Italians would rather cut off our balls than root for France.

Either blowing off the French or the Germans, or christ all mighty at the worst of times you're sucking off the Austrians. Well not you sweet Sicilians, you're more than content with Moor dingus.

If Roger and Guiscard could see ya'll now, they'd probably piss themselves laughing and would roll over southern Italy and Sicily like a hot knife through butter. Bobby would give this pope the same spanking he gave Pope Leo at Civitate.

I take offense to that, we explicitly denied the Moors access to our mouths, we prefer Greek, Norman, German and Spanish dinguses, thank you.
