Alternatively, learn a proper sport - play more rugby!
NO, I will not be watching.
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.
Every game. ESPN and ABC.
If they win - coo'...but I don't watch kick-ball.
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.
