    World Cup 2006

    So anyone from Toronto doing anything for the World Cup? I know I'll be rooting for Trinidad to beat England on June 15. Most likely it won't happen but it's good to dream right?

    What? No Canadian pride?

    Or did they even get to the World Cup?
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Eh, not to be rude or anything, but I figure about three sleepless nights, max.

    It is the vehicle by which the US of A will be embarrassing the rest of the World over the next month.

    IF the USA survives 'group' play, and they are in the real 'Group of Death™' this time around, I think it very possible that they'll win the whole thing.

    Right now, the USA's national football team, ranked 5th best in the World, is considered to be better than the team that made the quarter finals last time.

    USA v. Czech Republic on 12-June.

    GO RED, WHITE and BLUE!!!

    I wish I could be that optimistic – but, if the US of A survives group play, it will probably be in second place, which probably earns us a quarterfinal match with Brazil. Yikes.

    If and when Trinidad gets out, Italy is my next team to support. I'm half Maltese so I have to cheer for my neighbours.

    USA? WHO? Do they have a team? Oh ya their ranking is based on points in which they defeated most people in CONCACAF which means nothing. I don't remember the last time they defeated anyone meaningful, if at all.

    Now Andre, you have not forgotten that the US went all the way to the quarter finals 4 years ago in Korea/Japan?

    V's over Mexico, Portugal and a heartbreaker 1 nil loss to the Germans. Sorry but the US has a solid side now.

    Though their group is tough this year and will have to work hard to get on to the second round.

    Hmmm.....

    I think I will make a point of watching at least one match this time......USA vs. Chech's on the 12th may be it...... I'm good for one match.......I'm a patient fellow......not as patient as RJ who'd rather watch paint dry

    I'd love to see the USA beat a great team like Brazil or Germany, just to see their collective "HEADS" explode

    Yeah... I'm tired with it too... and I also wish that the world cup vanishes from the earth... I'm sick and tired of it.... like the olympics.... except that around here it gets excessive coverage... unlike the olympics...

    I don't think Germany will be a problem. My Mom lives near Stuttgart and she don't have very high hopes for the German National Team (apparently they suck REALLY bad)

    Watch out for the Germans who could win their second World Cup in 10 years.

    For those of you who forgot once the French won the cup they surrendered it to Germany!!!

    Now now, none of that sort of attitude around here skel!

    I dont think England or the USA will win, or make the semi's. Italy may have a chance- but it is more that likely Brazil will be up there again (unfortunetly).

    I would like to think Australia would give everyone a run for their money... but realistically thats not going to happen- hey we are there and thats the main thing.

    I would rather have Italy win it over Brazil anyday. I am still rooting for Trinidad, no matter how far they reach.
