Well, it's here! And if you're an American who is watching this opening match trying to figure out why this sport is so dang popular....you're probably still wondering! The first ten minutes of this have been CRAP. Frantic, sloppy, ugly football.

Also, I am already missing hearing a British voice on commentary. Hearing Ian Darke on commentary just put me in a World Cup state of mind. Listening to JP and Meola puts me in a "Saturday afternoon MLS match" state of mind.
COYB!!

Agree with all of that, dunlopp. Strong and Holden are decent, JP's a good hand, but him and Meola as your #2 guys, no. The 48 team tournament we just won will have some even worse games. They might have to do some good old-fashioned draw fixing so Edmonton doesn't end up trying to get people to come to a Panama-UAE game.

Yes, JP and Meola LOL... they talk as if they are on a freaking radio, quite Jarring and Commentary delivery stinks...IMO.

Was watching Telemundo, pretty much wall to wall coverage and exciting, even though I dont understand Spanish

At least Iran's now beaten somebody else at a World Cup. Thanks Morocco.

SPAIN-PORTUGAL could be the best group stage game of this WC. Incredible. What group stage games could compete? Argentina-Croatia. Germany-Sweden. England-Belguim.

Indeed, what a game today! I'm really looking forward to Germany vs Mexico on Sunday. I am also looking forward to France vs Peru on Thursday.

Argentina look like they may not even get out of the group stage this time.

How did we miss out on Delaney again?

Because he wanted to stay in the Danish program. Klinsmann made many attempts.

Delaney looks old anyways....

In other news, Bars are seeing less business without the US in it.

Only game I caught today was Croatia-Nigeria, that was a mistake. Fox's coverage is not good, would much rather ESPN or NBC had the rights.
