The World Cup is here, and the New York Times has a pretty good coverage with what’s going on. Check it out at www.nytimes.com/worldcup. Check out their interactive Flash App as well.
Soccer is not really my cup of tea, it’s probably 6th or 7th in my list. It’s one of those games where it just takes too long to score. 90 monites of regulation play and the score is 1-0. geez. This game is crazy though, you have to have agility and endurance … lots of endurance to excel at this game. Brazil has been the favorite for quite sometime. I’m personally rooting for Japan (which happens to be in the same bracket with Brazil) and the United States. Two huge underdogs in this game. I think the Italians and the Germans have a shot at the cup. We’ll see in a couple of days.
