Korea & Japan, I think.

I think I'll watch the last half of the championship game like I did in '98.

Last time I watched some of the championship game and will probably do the same unless the US seems to be doing well...

Because we focus on real sports like basketball, baseball, football, and hockey.

That's okay, soccer "futbol" just speaks for itself. Soccer is the number one sport in the world. I was in international sport class and my buddy asked what people from other countries thought of how crazy we get @ sports in the states. Um.... Hooligans.. that's all I have to say. People do not get killed here for cheering for another team

Hey Jenna, I agree. The So called fans in England and Europe,Latin & South America,are fanatical about their teams. In North America,we are a little more civilized. However I have seen some of these "hooligan' tactics even in college games. The World cup of soccer only comes around once every 4 years. If you missed the series in 1998,I'm sorry for you. The USAid quite well, and the time zone was in your favor.Most games I shall be following (for ESPN soccernet.com)don't start until after midnight because they are in Japan and Korea. You should check in any you can catch. These are some of the world's best. Not like baseball,(which I like & follow),where the "world Series" is for the (until conscription)2 Canadian teams and the balance American teams.(george S. wouldn't want it any other way).Why not include Japan or Cuba or The Dominican Republic.Check out the Mariner's lineup.

OK,so the World cup of soccer got off to a great start this morning, with a big upset when defending champions France went down to defeat by upstart Senegal 1-0.Don't tell me that all you 'sport fans' aren't tuning this in!France incidently are the favorites to repeat at 5-1.

I'm taking Germany to win still. When do they play?? Sorry, not that into it. Like I said before somewhere on these boards, I'll probably watch the last half of the last game.
