2018 FIFA World Cup

Recommended Posts

Sounds like it was an exciting end to the game.

 

Would have been cool to see had YouTube TV not glitched out.

I feel like I’m in the minority here, but I actually was pulling for Panama. Damn Belgians, they’ll go out sooner or later. Roberto Martinez lead sides usually tend to start leaking goals sooner or later.

I am watching on Telemundo instead (Yeah for being bilingual) because the Fox commentators are not always the best.  They have 1 good team, 1 adequate team (Meola) and that weird team of 2 Spanish speakers who are so partisan that it is painful to watch them cover a game that has any Latin country in it because they are rooting, not discussing.  Even on Telemundo, the commentary is more balanced.  

 

And as to the big question, following England means never having to wonder why they aren't better.  They just never are.  Great league, horrible national team. 

 

BTW, I am not rooting for Mexico.  I liked that Germany lost, but it would have been the same  had they lost to Sweden or Korea for me.  Since the USA is not in it I am rooting for La Furia Roja. ¡España!

 

I like the Fox Deportes guys that they brought over. The play-by-play guy, in particular, has been maybe a little too excitable, but it is nice to get some of that Latino flavor on English broadcasts. I'm a little tired of defaulting to droll English accents.

 

Anyway. Colombia-Japan did not go the way I expected.

I find the play-by-play man to be unbearable.  The color guy isn't bad, when he can get a word in edgewise.

Ugh, it is going to be insufferable if Ronaldo wins the Golden Boot... 

He still trails Own Goal! I feel like Chersyev (spelling, ?) would be even worse. He plays Iran next so I don't see him getting as free as he did vs Spain and Morocco.
