    World Cup 2018: The best party money could buy (until 2022)!

    It all begins tomorrow at 11AM et.

    Big news so far is EspaŮa firing their coach (because he took the Real Madrid job?).

    Enjoy!

    Outside of Russia the US has bought the most tickets.
    A bad cause requires many words.

    I would pay... well, I wouldn't actually pay anything, but I would laugh my as-s off if the Sauds housed Ivan on opening night.

    They wonít. Any Asian team not named Japan or South Korea sucks (yes Iím including Australia), and even they arenít great. If itís under 4 Iíll be shocked.

    Russia's manager Cherchesov is a moron. It's going to be a lot closer than you think. Smolov will get zero service, the 35+ error prone CBs are going to show their age, and Golovin is going to be wasted somehow.

    Never, ever underestimate European teams in Europe, they typically perform above expectations.

    Never, ever expect anything about any Russian team ever. Hell the Olympic hockey team needed OT to win gold after losing to freaking Slovakia in the groups

    All the opening ceremony needs is Ovechkin running out with the SC yelling "F__k Yea!"

    Lame. I distinctly remembering ESPN having to stream all games freely because of some deal with FIFA, given that I only had internet and Roku in 2014. Trust FOX to be ****ups.

    Spanish broadcast is better. Too bad my Spanish is non existent.

    EDIT: No cards handed out so far

    I'd also like to say that I called that third Russian goal because I said on discord during the first half that the game was screaming for Dzyuba over Smolov (Saudi's defense can't handle Dzyuba's size or physicality)
