England 1, Brazil 0 so far.

28 min: Beckham's OK; he tries to half-volley a dropping ball from 35 yards; there's only a pained look on his face because the ball sails miles over the bar.


25 min: A scare for England as Beckham is carried off on a stretcher. Maybe he just wanted some attention, because he runs back on soon after.

45 min +2: GOAL England 1 - 1 Brazil. What a goal this was. Ronaldinho takes the ball from the centre circle, dummies Cole this way and that, before feeding Rivaldo on the right-hand edge of the English box. He opens his body and side-foots the ball past Seaman from a difficult angle. You've got to hand it to them, haven't you? Oh.

The other good news is that Germany elimated the US. On the other hand, Germany is one team I don't want to see win the cup.

If I meet any Brazilians today, I'm gonna hooliganize their asses with extreme prejudice.

(I can make such wild, rediculous, idiotic statements because there is zero chance that I'm gonna knowingly meet any Brazilians today. But it feels good to talk tough from time to time.)

Yup, those Brazilians better watch their backs when they see ME walking down the street.

(Again, it's all talk. No need for alarm.)

In fact, I think I'll head over to the Brazilian embassy and drive my car through the front window!

(a: I don't know where the Brazilian embassy is. b: I'm far too lazy to look it up in the phone book. c: I don't own a car.)

I'm a one-man wrecking crew of soccer wrath today!

(No I'm not. I've actually only watched one pro soccer match in my life, and I only watched the first half.)

South Korea advance to semi-finals!!! Of course, it's not satisfying if it's on penalty shots. Oh well. I hope they beat Germany. I'm not betting on it, though.

You hope they beat Germany? We are going to grind you into the dust and make you eat grass buddy!

Hee hee. Of course, I use "we" loosely, as well as "you", considering that I'm not German, and I don't think you're Korean.

Seriously, looks like I picked a good team to cheer for! Rasmus, you said in another thread that you cheered for Germany in the last world cup because of some crazy tribalism notion. I'm basically cheering for Germany for the same reason - because my mother and her entire side of the family were born in Germany.

I'm just wondering - what other criteria would you use for which country overall to cheer for? Do you pick names out of a hat, or cheer for your favorite colour jersey or what?

When I'm watching a game that Germany's NOT playing, I often either root for the underdog, or I'll root for a colonized country over a colonizer...hee hee. Or a non-European country over a European one.

One team I DIDN'T root for was Mexico when they played against the US. I started to cheer for them, really, I did, but man do they play dirty! And as soon as the US got the goal, they started getting really ugly. Not that the US didn't respond a bit, but nowhere near the way Mexico did. I laughed when that one Mexican player faked a foul in the penalty zone as a last ditch effort to get a penalty kick. The ref was unimpressed, and rightfully so. I've seen other refs give yellow cards for that - this guy was lucky.

P.S. If Germany wins, I'm going to break out my grandfather's accordian and my mother's Oktoberfest hat and annoy the neighbours.

hey now, i love to play soccer and the World Cup is breathtaking athleticism, but did you know that the evils of economic liberalisation intrude here, too? yes, there are children making soccer balls in plants around the world. sexism in soccer? yes, sisters. cheer for the Brasilian men, but recall that the woman receive little or no funding and there are chicas playing in Rio's ghettoes as talented as Ronaldo.

Well, so it'll be Germany-Brazil. A bunch of Brazil supporters are driving by and honking... Who will be watching the Final match and where? In a sport bar or café? With friends? With a Brazilian-German buffet?

I'm tuning the accordian...

(kidding - I don't think you CAN tune those wretched things, can you?)

I'll likely be watching it at home - maybe I'll invite a couple of friends over and have an early-morning breakfast buffet during the game.

GO GERMANY!! WOO HOO!

Lots of people in Montreal celebrating the Brazil win - Latino-Americans, Haitians, Brazilians ... and some Germany fans from Berlin restaurant (a cool place on the Plateau) came up with their flags and everyone is being friendly.

Farther down on St-Laurent, a lot of Portuguese are partying too. And I think a lot of people would celebrate no matter who won, it is just an excuse to have a good time without having to spend a lot of money.

Well, that's just it, isn't it? That's what I love about the World Cup - such fun, such partying, and all over a game. How cool is that? People should spend more time partying over games.
