    I was actually going to start a World Cup 2006 thread around the first of June for us soccer (football) fans to discuss the tournament.

    I am a hard core fan. Played and watched my entire life. Went to quite a few games in the 1990 World Cup in Italy. Watched the 3rd place game between Italy and England. (Sorry Mate..but I was pulling for Italy)

    We have a tough draw. I see a win against Ghana but probably two loses (Italy and Czech). I hope we can pull a draw against Czech Republic and Ghana will upset against one of the other two teams.

    Italy will go through undefeated. After that, with a couple of upsets, we might squeak into the next round. Probably out after that though considering # 2 in Group E plays winner of Group F which will be Brazil.

    I do too.

    I'm all for "GO USA" but my fave national team is Italy. When the two of them play, I hope we play well. I doubt we will win considering Italy's run through qualifying. Losing Vieri will hurt for his experience and leadership but with Totti back, I think they will cruise through the First Round.

    I used to play soccer alot as a kid. Was fun to play but I can't stand watching it. I don't even know if the world cup is going to be televised. Basketball and (REAL) Football are alot more fun to play and watch.

    I can't stand to watch soccer. I get too pissed off at all the flopping and whining that goes on.

    Your best rugby player would get destroyed by a marginal NFL talent.
