Given that the World Cup is really the biggest sporting event in the world outside of the Olympics, it's pretty sad that you won't find it on network TV in the US, excepting perhaps the Final match. Fortunately, Univision is one of the few cable stations that we get, so I'll be able to tune in for a few "Copa Mundial" matches.

Just finished watching Italy's win over Ghana, 2-0. Good game. Was a little disheartening to see USA lose 3-0 to the Czech Republic today, but the Czechs are the strongest team in what's already a tough group.

Dawn and I will actually be in Europe during the Third Place and Final matches; it'll be fun to watch in a place where soccer (ahem, football) is the #1 sport.
