Wouldn't it be fantastic if the times they showed the matches coincided with us all NOT being at work? OUr company screens the websites we go into, so I get 1 minute of yahoo.com or fifaworldcup.com and then I'm thrown out.
My favourite world cup was 1990 with Lineker and Gascoigne et al.
My favourite match was Ireland vs Italy. I was in a pub in Stockwell, London with a huge bunch of Irish people - tvs everywhere and a live Irish band afterward. It was fabulous - Ireland lost, the band played, people danced and Guinness was poured non-stop.
