World Cup 2018

#1 Post by arjaybe » Thu Jun 14, 2018 12:42 pm

Is everyone set to stream the World Cup 2018 on their wide-screen monitors? Anyone with any tips on how to get the games? Are Argentina good enough for Messi to get them very far?

I get them on cable so no issues there.

The NL are not participating, so I am rooting for Belgium. Of course ;)

I dislike football so am not bothered who wins.

I used to watch every game in the past World Cups, not sure if I will do this time, I kind of lost interest. Maybe my interest will pick up with better matches, more interesting teams, can't say I really cared about Russia and Saudi Arabia...

Since I don't have a team I will root for the smallest: Go Iceland!

That's a good idea! Go Iceland! When are they playing? What color are their sweaters?

Pretty much a neutral here, so I'll just watch matches that look to be a good match between 2 teams that play nice football.

Example - Portugal v Spain tonight looks promising.
