And by football, I mean, you know, the game you actually play by kicking a ball with your foot. (As opposed to the sport where it's illegal to kick the ball with your foot, unless you're one of 2 players in 3 extremely narrowly-defined instances.) Anyway, this is only the second World Cup I've paid attention to from the start, so I'm no expert...but it's been really entertaining. The US v. Portugal match didn't result in the most satisfying outcome, but it was a great game. Wondering if there are any other observations from more seasoned observers. Limey? Welsh? London? Abelardo? Anyone else?
