I'm realistic. The U.S. won't win, so I'll probably root for England, but only after we beat them tomorrow.

The Dutch would be my second choice.

First two opening games end in draws - first time in 24 years. (yawn)

Word is that the lead official for the USA-England match (who doesn't speak English) is being taught English curse words so he'll know what to discipline. I'd love to sit in on that lesson.

Fook? NO

Sheet? NO

etc. etc.

Hahaha!

My wife is English, and she's always giving me slack about who I'm going to support. Obviously USA,...I'm American! Still, I agree with 'grmasterb' : If USA is out, England, if England is out, Netherlands. Those are my three top teams, but we'll see what happens tomorrow.

I'm going to a British pub tomorrow morning with my wife, and hopefully no fist-fights break out!

My heart wants US which with that defense will NOT happen! My minds says either Holland or Spain (atleast on paper!!).... We'll see...

I will say that although the 1-1 score doesn't show it, I was impressed with South Africa today. The assist on the goal was absolutely beautiful, they played great offensively, just didn't finish well...

Hopefully Brazil, but Spain has a VERY good chance of winning. Maybe Italy or Germany will surprise us. I cant believe that Mexico/S. Africa match today. WTF. The Uruguay vs. France match was pretty much what I expected.
