WORLD CUP 2010! Mundial Fever! Bafana!

Yo, why is soccer such a lame sport in the US? That's the topic of another entry, and anyway who cares?! If you know anything then you will know that football, true football, is the greatest sport in the world. Catch the fever, don't listen to the lamos who call soccer a whack sport. Support a team. Argentina, Brazil, Italy, whoever, just jump on board and soak in the excitement.

Supposedly ESPN offers free matches streaming LIVE on their website, formerly ESPN360, but you have to subscribe to an affiliated internet service provider. Otherwise, if your still trying to tune in online for free, check out Si no entiendes español (if you don't understand Spanish), then open up a live audio broadcast in English, such as ESPN online radio coverage in English to compliment Univision's live video feed.

The U.S. team is playing a good match against England as I type this. Score is tied at one to one. The U.S. has come a long way, and to be honest, to give credit where credit's due, they're actually pretty good. But as far as giving them my support, well, I'm not quite sure I can, due to the fact I mentioned above--U.S. soccer fans lack the fuel, the passion, la gasolina, that propels the sport around the world. Maybe eventually, I can come out of the closet and support them. In the meantime, let's go Brazil!

Who you think will win the World Cup 2010?


btw, congrats to Korea (who defeated Greece 2-0 this morning), and Argentina (who won 1-0 against Nigeria).
