    The memes on Twitter are pretty funny. I'm a relative newbie to the world of International Soccer - being a Red Bulls MLS fan and all - but I'm looking forward to seeing the skill of these teams. Holy crap! I cannot believe what some of these dudes can do. One part of soccer that I'm having difficulty accepting is the off-side rule. Geez! Maybe I'll appreciate it one day, but right now, I see such great scoring opportunities just shut down. The game would be even more exciting with more goals, no?

    Or at least more shot attempts on net, but who are we to change a game that the world already loves. I like the World Cup, but I like the UEFA Champion League and UEFA Euro better. I do get a kick, no pun intended, out the English papers on their criticism of the England team.

    I'll be rooting for Mexico "El Tri" and they are not in an easy group Germany (my bet to win), South Korea, and Sweden.

    same can be said for hockey, no? keeps "cheap plays" out of the game.

    i dont mind the rule as much as I mind all of the "fake injuries".. grown ass man barely gets touched and is wincing and rolling in pain for 10 minutes.. come on!

    I hear you Nashty - that fake crap is embarrassing. But so is the officiating.

    Russia first team ready (99.999%) for the elimination rounds. Although that group was rigged af its always funny to see the hosts doing good.

    I remember when it was just players from some certain countries, but after TV-Quality got better and they started enhancing pictures to see even the slightest body contact and call it a Foul, everyone started doing it.
