2018 World Cup

This will just be me talking to myself, especially with the US out, but let's do this.

This is my favorite month every four years. There's nothing quite like the World Cup.

Also, wtf Spain, firing your coach on the eve of the tournament?!?!

It was a mess but given Lopetegui's behaviour...
I'm hoping for an Argentina - Portugal final.

I will be in Portugal during the final, so really hoping for Brazil-Portugal. It would be all sorts of fun.

Still can't believe we're having a world cup without Holland and Italy. Hasn't lessened my excitement though. The atmosphere looks so great at the stadium in Moscow for the opening game!

I love the World Cup, but don't know much about any of the teams. No USA, but I still love to watch .

As is tradition for Australians since 2006 (which we don't mention, Fabio Grosso face up to your crimes in the Hague bitch), I think we will win the World Cup.

Pretty crazy opening game. Sunday league standard really by the Saudis. Hopefully Spain-Portugal delivers. Usually this a 1-0 game of course.

I guess this time Portugal won't be as defensive as usual against Spain, but we will see with the starting eleven. Some new players have been added after winning the Euro 2016 that could fit particularly well against Spain (Guedes, B. Silva).

Uruguay will probably deliver as well, they have a great team this year.

Egypt/Uruguay would have been a great game with Salah. Such a shame. F&$@ you Sergio Ramos. I hope Cristiano Ronaldo makes you look silly later today.

i was the office hero today for sharing my stream and putting it up on the screen in client services where everyone could see it

i hope portugal gets absolutely demolished brazil-style in the knockout round because the portuguese here are absolutely insufferable right now with how smug they're still being over the last euros championship and how certain they are that they're going to win this one too. but damn that was a great match. could end up being one of the classics from this tournament.

Drama! I thought the VAR decision was correct though. And then Umtiti has a complete brainfart.
