    Central and South American teams are the worst offenders.

    Great game between Germany and Sweden. Die Mannschaft still alive.

    Cause hand egg ball doesn't sound right.

    Yeah that was insane. I'm at the U.S. Youth soccer regionals in North Carolina right now. Watching the world cup between watching the kids.

    I've said it before but soccer is almost the only sport in the U.S. gaining ground right now. Twenty years from now it will be a different landscape.

    See that now...flew right by me like Kroos' 95th minute winner past the keeper. What an ending, especially being a man down.

    My childhood interest grew from pro and College exposure.
    You really don't need a hell of a lot for basketball either. A ball, 2 goals, and a stadium...I really like the group stage before the knock out.

    Germany's flopping was amazing.

    Brazil has it down to an art form. They dive so much, Greg Luganous gives them a thumbs up for form.

    Germany was amazing today dominating possession down a man. Sweden may have woken the bear.

    Germany seems to do it without the huge super star too.

    Beautiful goal by Lingard of England. The round of 16 will be fun! They are loaded with all-stars. This might be their year.

    Did anyone see that sick cross by Columbia for their 3rd goal. Holy smokes. And, how about that Columbia crowd? Man those folks travel. Love the passion.

    By the way, this stadium in Kazan is exactly the type of stadium the Cajuns need. This place is loud for a small stadium.

    Spain dodges bullet, ties Morraco in stoppage time, wins group. Should be the mothership's top play of the day. Blind shot.
