World Cup 2010-South Africa

I think I actually started blogging on a blogger site in 2006 (and it’s still there, of course) when the last WC was occurring and blogged about it.  Since living in Italy, I care.  I woke up at 4 am or something crazy to watch USA lose to Germany in 2002.  I was thrilled that Italy won last time, although I was at camp and could only follow the game online.

I thought I would offer some picks just for fun.  Here are my selections for which clubs will advance from each group:

Group A
Mexico and Uruguay (yes, I am picking France to flop)

Group B
Argentina (I like them and for Tim) and Nigeria

Group C
England and USA (although I am nervous)

Group D
Ghana and Germany (although my girl has a Serbian friend in pre-K)

Group E
Netherlands and Cameroon

Group F
Italy and Paraguay

Group G
Brazil and Portugal

Group H
Spain and Honduras

Of course, I want USA to do well.  I hope Clint Dempsey and Jozy Altidore play well.

I root for Italy.  I also like to see Argentina and the Netherlands play well.

I will go ahead and pick a minor underdog for champion:  The Netherlands, and if not them, then maybe Holland.

Who will you be rooting for besides USA?

  1. Hey, I’m touched.

    Argentina has the players, but I’m pretty doubtful about their coach. Italy has the players, but I’m afraid they’ve gotten old.

    I can see The Netherlands as a possibility, but Holland doesn’t have a chance. The Dutch could beat them any day.

    Grace and peace,
    Tim Archer

  2. i heard some thing about a little complaining from players, but it doesn’t matter to me, i didn’t even notice it today watching parts of two games

    sorry I missed this initially – I’d have been really upset with you for dissing Les Bleus… and wow were you right!

    I’m rooting for Honduras! The Swiss really gave us a huge help!
