Other people might have more to say about the World Cup than I do, but I thought I'd start a thread for those interested.

For one, I'm pretty interested in seeing how Cote d'Ivoire will do since Didier Drogba is supposedly a real star, and we tend not to see African nations go all the way to the end. South Africa's also got the huge home fanbase, so I'd really like to see them do well too.

Show me a person who describes anything as "overrated", and I'll show you a person who's run out of good ideas.

As a Brazilian it's obvious who I'm rooting for, but I love seeing the underdogs perform well. South Africa's tie was great. On the other hand, this sucks because I work a graveyard shift so I'm always passed out during the games...

Yep, the US tied England 1-1 in their first round match today.  They got the goal in the 40th minute when Green (the British goalie) made a really bad fumble.

I like how Americans are calling it an "upset" already. :P

My goodness, it's unbearable watching matches. Those fucking vuvuzelas sound like killer bees raping dying goats in a slaughterhouse. I can't stand them. Good going south africa, you finally get a world cup and you're going to be remembered for being the world cup that was most excruciating to watch due to shitty monotone plastic horns.

Somebody posted a picture on facebook that made me laugh out loud. Shows how much the crowd's noises differentiate based on what's going on:

South Korea claims first win in this World Cup FTW!   (ROK 2 - Greece - 0)

You've GOT to be here to see the devout population of the ROK for the incredible fans they are!

Aw...I was expecting more out of South Africa today. Uruguay's a really tough team, but the African spirit just feels so shot now...it was pretty sad to see the fans walking out of the stadium already.

Switzerland is still holding up to be a bit of a Cinderella story though.

Best of luck to South Korea against Argentina tomorrow!
