There are flags of every country (ok mostly Italian ) at many many doors.
    Wow, DesertRose, that sounds great!

    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.
    It's a fair cop guv - you got me bang to rights and no mistake!

    Goooooooo Brazil. The best hope for the South Americans. It is nuts down here, and the commercials are too funny.

    My favourite match was N.Ireland v Spain in 1982 when we won 1-0 with a Gerry Armstrong goal. Only surpassed by N.I beating England 1-0 last September in Belfast

    I couldn't agree with you more about a favorite World Cup. I lived in Northern Ireland at the time and have fond memories of all the madness.

    When I watched Trinidad-Tobago hold off Sweden, I thought T-TOW! Now I know a true application for TAR's Hippies' power word. T-T better cosset the goalie, though...and then there is the history of Sweden never winning a first match ...but, this is the underdog story of the world cup.

    I love it! My American husband and I got up early this weekend, had our breakfast in bed and watched the games. It was great! Too bad work's going to get in the way of watching the broadcasts live...

    Dang, USA just got walloped 3-0 by the Czech..Harsh on them since they did have a majority of the possession..Getting ready for the Italy and Ghana game and I'm going with a 1-1 draw..

    Well, I was thinking when he said, "king of the jungle," I was, like, "Well, during the first challenge you would still be lost in the jungle if Jim and I hadn't, like, led you out. - Brooke Struck on Judd
