Look at that, more evidence of bribery and corruption regarding Qatar 2022...  Ohhhhh, I see.

Prediction, they yank it from them (finally) and give it to the USA with Atlanta as one of the flagship cities.

I just had this image of a haka at the beginning of a football match in Oz. That would scare the pants off those male model diving specialists  why so serious?

But yeah thanks for the links. Seems pretty god and dried to me (not that there was any doubt in the first place)

And here we go: Brazi - Croatia today as the opening match.

FIFA.com just posted a nice video featuring the best opener goals since 1982 (the most surprising ones were of course Biyik against Argentina - Italy '90 and Bouba Diop against France - Korea '02) :

And yeah, let's hope for some fun and crazy celebrations  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

Latest news from Brazil: the subway strike in Sao Paulo has been revoked (but there are still clashes between protestors and the police); on the other hand, in Rio, it looks like airport workers announced a 24 hour strike, which began about 8 hours ago awesome, for real

This is why the event should only be held in stable countries on a rotation. USA, UK, China, Russia, Australia, and maybe a few others.

Opening ceremony starts at 2.15pm ET (8.15pm CET); predictions for Bra - Cro ? Mine is 3-0, but the first half will end goal-less, 'til the home team will eventually break through in the 2nd half.

Spain, Brazil or Germany are who I would pick (probably in that order). Rooting for USA and England. And Croatia for today because fuck Brazil.

Yeah it was shoddy in places. I can't imagine it's going to be better in Brazil.

The one thing Russia can do is safety. They can put their boot on this shit. Same thing with China. Same thing here. My main concern isn't the comfort of the participants as much as it is the fans, and people not getting murdered.

I am going with Germany this year because I know fuckall about soccer and always pull the picks out of my ass. Deep down, I really want Japan to win for some reason.

I think ESPN.go.com does but only if you have an account with one of their partner ISP's like Comcast.

I am just going with the pirated streams, partially because I am a bad person, but mostly because this is the only time I actually pay attention to soccer and enjoy the games.

If you can handle listening to Mexican announcers (hint, even if you don't speak Spanish it is better than John Harkes and his ilk on ESPN) Univision streams everything for free until the quarterfinals.

Perfect.  Thanks. 

I'm going to search for a german equivalent.  My comprehension of german is a bit better than my spanish.

Looks like Twitter has some decent customization for WC-related feeds. Anyway, here is the "official" one for the first match (people are posting a nice amount of pictures from the stadium):

It would appear ESPN3's feed has already crapped out.

Opening ceremony surely was "nothing to write home about" as you guys say in english, but hey, they only had 20-25 minutes; enjoyed the dancing parts, and everything was pleasantly very colourful :D. Also, I can't remember a longer gap between the ceremony itself and the kick-off. Oh, and I prefer Shakira. Gief Shakira the world cup song 'til she's a 90 yrs old granny, plz.

Their stream is pretty solid and crystal clear pic.
