Stopped by a watering hole the other day and even though the World Cup doesn't start for a while, all the Pubs here seem to be getting in the spirit early. I'm not a football fan myself (that's Soccer for our American friends) but I must admit to hoping England get past the opening rounds. :)

Raining here again today, :bawling: but I couldn't resist posting this shot when the sun made a brief appearance. Nothing to do with MV's though.

I am a big football fan, love it watch live here our local stuff every weekend and watch Liverpool when ever I can, either in the pub or live, just a short Vomit comet ride to Liverpool....

Nice pics by the way

I originally moved to the US back in 1990 and one thing I miss the most is Football.

World Cup should be great this yr, can't wait for it to begin.

John,
If I recall Englands last victory was in 1966? Do you think they will do better this yr?

You are correct Amer. 40 years ago since England won their one, and so far, only victory. I remember watching the game on a Black and White TV along with friends and neighbours. As I mentioned in my earlier post, I'm not a avid follower of the game these days but the England side does, I believe, stand as good a chance as they have ever done since '66. The usual 'big guns' Brazil, Italy, etc. will be the teams to beat. I hope it's an exciting competition and everyone who is going to Germany to watch the games has a good time. :)

hmmm, but if you look at the repertoire, you will see, there only could be a quater-final game Germany-England... then you must look for the result of the quarterfinal game in Mexico 1970 :naughty:

Manuel, you know far more about the competition than I do. I don't even know which teams are playing in the same group as England. :eek: Will you be going to see any of the games yourself? :smoking:

Unfortunatelly, I didn´t get any tickets. The ticket lottery was such a :eek:nthecan: You have to pay in advance, even if you are not sure to get a ticket, and if not, they keep the handling fee (i think approx. 50 Euro)... :wtf:
Also, you can not give away the tickets (to friends or so); on every ticket, there is your name and passport number. Without matching names/numbers, you are not allowed to get in the stadium - so no chance to buy a ticket anywhere else.

fyi:
Group B:
England
Paraguay
Trinidad/ Tobago
Sweden

I can imagine Europe being one crazy town to be in for this tourney.

Manuel,

My $$$ are on Brazil. Been a fan of Brazilian soccer since I was 10. I got to watch the Semi finals here in the US when they played in Dallas.

Started off with a rainbow shot, so I thought I'd put another one in!
