France: le Foot: Mondial: Karim Benzema

by Rexswimguy

Both of our World Cup games yesterday were thrillers indeed ... right down to the wire.  Do we have more chills and spills in store for us in today's doubleheader?

... plus #10 Karim Benzema of France scoring a big goal for his team last week.  Does he have more such ammo in his arsenal?  Watch today and see.

Bros and Buds

You've always been here for me,
But now you are about to leave.
I know we fuss and fight,
But I love you with all my might.

You are my big brother,
And there is no other.
No one ..........

Chile and host team Brazil went down to the wire in yesterday's first World Cup game, ultimately requiring a shootout to decide the outcome. 

Conversely, Colombia dominated Uruguay in the second game, with Uruguay absent their forward Luis Suarez (tisk).  Now, stay tuned for another huge doubleheader today!

Looking forward to today's games, can Mexico sneak up on the Netherlands "Orange Crush?"  If the powerful legs of Mexico's #14 Javier "Chicharito" Hernández have anything to do with it, they might.

World Cup: Uruguay can taste the victory in Round of 16!

by Rexswimguy

World Cup action resumes now with the Second Stage Round of 16, including a big doubleheader for us today.  Note that each game is now do-or-die, hence the more common name, "Knockout" Stage.

... plus the popular captain of the Uruguay team, Diego Lugano.  He had the dubious job this week of dealing with the media and the Luis Suarez "biting" incident that occurred in the Uruguay-Italy game.  (Uruguay will need all the charm they can muster to deal with the publicity from that one!)  Watch for Diego today.
