The Beautiful Game

Just a reminder to sports fans, including those currently in the thralls of the Stanley Cup Finals, that the World Cup of Soccer begins on Friday. On the top right of this page is a drop-down menu that will collect all of SportsMatters posts on the subject. We already have a list of General Resources in there, which includes a calendar of the games, as well as the Canadian television schedule. Tomorrow's action is on Rogers SportsNet, with action in Group A.

What are the picks?

Or did I miss that post?

I was in a World Cup Pool last time and it was all by bracket, similar to an NCCA pool I guess. You know, had to pick the order of finish for each group and then remainder accordingly.

Finished dead last.

And I actually follow the sport.

Of course, I had Ireland going all the way.

Stupid heart! Always lead with the brain!

They are coming, Pat. Our soccer guy Sheamus is supposed to put up a preview of each team. Picks as well, I believe.

I was surprised at how good the Ecuadorians looked this afternoon. Aside from a brief stretch early in the second half, they owned the Polish squad.

apparently all but one of their wins in qualifying were at high altitude thus the low expectations (I love these crazy wc facts)

poor Poles - now they have to beat Germany or hope for a miracle
