World Cup 2018

Anybody watching?

Russia v Saudi Arabia is a pretty uninspiring first game.

Also, the fact that we won the right to host 2026 but are sharing duties with our North American neighbors, who we have been busy alienating.

Re: World Cup 2018

By 2026, hopefully, all that BS will be history. I'd like to watch some but I have to remember to look for it when I get home. I completely forgot. Who is showing it?

Re: World Cup 2018

World Cup is skiing.  No idea why anyone would be talk8ng about that in the summer.

Soccer is boring as watching paint dry.  It’s beyond me why any gives a crap about it.

Excellent! Been missing out on late night trolling Z since he abandoned the politics thread.

No offense, I love skiing (ski racing I appreciate but am mostly meh about), but the World Cup of skiing only takes place on two continents as far as I can tell, with 90% of the season in Europe. And only by individual competitors from the same collection of generally wealthy, white, mountainous nations.

By contrast, national teams from all over the world (todo al mundo!) compete in their regions for a chance to play in the largest sports competition known to man. It has been held on 5 different continents. The players are all different colors, religions. Many of the stars rose to prominence from incredibly humble beginnings.

So saying that World Cup skiing is the real World Cup is a bit like saying that the members of this message board reflect a true cross section of modern American society.

Plus the sociopolitical aspect can be fascinating when an African country knocks off it’s former colonial oppressor, or countries whose leaders rattle sabres at one another go toe to toe on the field.

I feel that there is probably a lot that is “beyond” you Z! 🍺 cheers mate!

Re: World Cup 2018

Isn't soccer the worlds largest sport?

It gets pretty intense, especially on the fan side of things. They light fires and everything. ROWDY!
