Just finished watching the Brazil/Croatia game. Certainly the first half was the best half of football in the competition so far – topped with a nice goal by Kaka. Second half wasn’t as good – though still better than the France/Switzerland game – the Brazilians looked a little tired. Fair dues to the Croatians for not giving up, though.
Some thoughts. I’ve given up watching ESPN. I can’t stand the inane commentary, lack of half-time analysis, pop-ups onscreen, and continued talk of the USA/Italy game. Univision is the way to go – even the crowd noise seems louder.
I basically watch soccer between 6am and 2pm, and then write for the afternoon, and spend the evening with my family. Hence, the relative lack of posts. And it’s not going to get any better. Next week I’m off to Europe (to catch some real soccer commentary!)
