    In the past I have tended to wait to watch the performances of a few groups games to see who is playing football and who is looking for an Academy Award. Too much acting, I bounce them from the cheering list.

    Been looking at the odds and the old faithful teams are all in it.

    After Brazil scoring the opening goal on themselves I was wondering about them. They have an advantage at home and think the rest have their work cut out to take it away.
    Netherlands and Germany look to be close contenders.

    At the moment I am cheering for Australia playing Chile.

    Must have a soft spot for the underdogs!

    Mostly I just like watching great play. I'll get rabid as the tournament proceeds.

    How do you tell a "trophy" ball from a representative ball? What are the sci measuements? Does anyone know what the day rates and trophy fees are for a soccer ball? Does a burchell soccer ball have shadow stripes wheras a mountain soccer ball just black and white?

    I like soccer. My sons play it and all my nieces and nephews play it on some level. I've enjoyed going to college soccer matches. But when it comes to watching professionals, I can't get into it. I can say the same thing about professional basketball and baseball. I rather watch grass grow.
