    So what you're saying is you like England, but you also like America. What should you do? There's only one way to find out:

    Last I heard about team America, they nag their way to victory. Not being one to ever doubt a rumor, I'll just go along and root for England.

    I'll watch the World Cup. It's the only time I watch futbol/soccer.

    I watched the Italy/Egypt game in Milan this past June and it was lots of fun. It was on the jumbotron in front of the Duomo in Milan. Lots of fanfare.

    Eh, not much of a "futbol"/soccer fan. Hell, our home team won the MLS Cup, and I didn't even know about it 'til a week later.

    The US is a good team but quite a underrated team, would be nice if they get to beat the English soccer giant.

    Two teams move on from each group, so I think England and the USA will get out of Group C to be in the "Group of 16". Whats killer is that Group G matching. 3 Teams in the top 16 in the same Group? Jeeze!

    Amen, that was soooooome BULL... Last I heard though, FIFA was looking into allowing Ireland to play as a 5th seed in a bracket. That might have just been something mentioned on SC though.

    Anyway, back on topic track, go England. I love watching Premier League matches, and MLS can piss off. Actualy it comes down to a matter of what games are on. Plus Premier league and UEFA matches are just so much more fun to watch.

    That reminds me, I gotta contact Comcast to figure out why my soccer channel went away. Bastards!!!!
