World Cup 2018

(1/7) > >>

It's that time bitches!

I love the world cup.  My only regret about is that there are few teams that have a legit chance of winning.  I am always hoping for a first time winner.

IMO these are the teams with Legit chances to win who aren't in the obvious group.

* Colombia
* Belgium
* Portugal
* Mexico -- I don't really think they have a chance.
* England -- Really don't belong on this list since they have won it before...but it has been something like 50 years
* Croatia
Now is the list of teams mostly likely to win (in order of likelyhood):

* Brazil
* Germany
* France
* Spain
* Argentina
* Uruguay -- They have won it before...but chance wise they belong in the first group
Personally I am hoping for Colombia, highly unlikely (I was born there for those of you that don't know.)  After that I would enjoy a team from the first list.  In the second list I used to love Brazil, but I am a bit sick of them.  I lived in Brazil for six years so I do have an attachment to them.  Argentina hasn't won in a while so I wouldn't mind them.  After that I am really not a fan of any of them.  Germany is a really impressive team and I really hope they don't win.  A bit sick of Spain.  With Uruguay I really hate their best player Suarez; such an asshole.

First game starts in 2 minutes!

Color me shocked.

Why I don't pay attention - it's always the same winners. ;) [/list]

Sadly it is a valid point for a lot of soccer, and maybe sports in general.

Still the World Cup has a lot of drama that makes watching/following it a ton of fun.

Mexico beats Germany.  That's a pretty big upset.

That is huge.  Now it is up to Mexico to keep the pressure up and win its group.

Today we have England and tomorrow Colombia.  Fun stuff. 

Also nice to see the powerhouses being less than impressive.
