Three out of four

Half the sides have now played their first matches in the World Cup, and three of the four teams that I have been rooting for have won their first matches. Today the Portuguese defeated their old colony, Angola, joining England and Argentina in my winners' circle.

Of course, tomorrow's the real test as the "group of death" matches take place. USA! USA! USA!

(Disclaimer: I don't know what I'm talking about.)

Although the US's group is very tough, Group C (Argentina, Holland, Ivory Coast, Serbia) has been dubbed by the majority as the Group of Death. I think we're a VERY close second, though.

I'm in the same boat, a vague understanding of the game, though I watched France trounce Brazil for the World Cup a few years ago. This morning I watched Mexico beat Iran, with their third soul-crushing score a beautiful head-butt to the corner.

Did somebody say something about the NBA Finals? Are they still on?

Its unfortunate that the Portugese scored and then seemingly played not to lose for the last hour of the match. Angola deserves a lot of credit, by all means they should have lost about 5-0, 1-0 is fine.

Come on, Jack. Now that your Kielbasas have lost their opener, you are going to expand your support umbrella to include England and Argentina? Why don't you just go ahead and take "anyone but the US"?

Based on today's performance, "anybody but the US" is the safest bet in the tournament. Totally horrid.
