My mysky is going to be going into overdrive this WC... I'm recording every game, watching the England and NZ games (and utilising the live rewind button for every goal!) and finishing the month extremely sleep-deprived :P
Don't wish things were easier...

... Wish you were better


Focus on the journey, and the result will take care of itself

Now thats the attitude I'm looking for.. I don't know how the heck I'm going to do it, but me too, I'll be sleeping in class, with the same cloth than the day before if needed, with a hang over, gain my few pounds that month, which is sacred for me.

Off Topic: I'm rooting for every team in America except Mexico, and the USA haha :D

If the two have to play each other, of course I wish the USA will slap the sh*t out of Mexico, which is the country and national team I hate the most.

Also, I'm starting to like England a lot, but they are not my favorite..

If I had to choose a favorite, it would probably be Argentina. Messi, Higuain, Tevez, Milito, Kun.. But not only the players, the culture, the songs, the dance, the TV shows, the countdowns, and the passions they live football with makes me like them a lot...

To be honest though, I also like Brazil, I was in Nike store yesterday and saw a tight ass Brazil T-shirt, that said, "En busca pela sexta estrella" which means in search of the 6th star... I like Brazil for similar reasons to those that I like Argentina.. Who has better talents?

Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile, are very strong as well, and I dare to say they can beat many European teams...

Its gonna be a fun tournament thats for sure.

Although Argentinians and Brazillians have equal level of skill set, the samba boys are more atheletic than the albiceleste, which is why they win majority of encounters....lol that has got to be one of the most subtlest of hints.

I've never looked at it that way, but that could be the truth..

Do you think it has that much impact in that level? Meaning, an Argentine playing for Real Madrid, and a Brazilian playing for Inter Milan, is there THAT much difference in athleticism? They both are world class professionals, that go through the best intense physical training to be able to basically sprint for 90 minutes (figure of speach), do you think they'll be that much difference between the two?

The truth is, that Argentinians are all white, and smaller in size, and Brazilians tend to be larger and more coloured.

More colored? How about "more African admixture". However, the Argentinians are also mixed: Italian, Spanish, native, etc. So both countries are genetically diverse.

Suite yourself bro, the entire world isn't racist, and I'm sure everybody understood what I meant, but if you wanna be specific, and point out the obvious then fine-

Its not the same if you pick two people. I am sure Tevez can beat the crap out of robinho. I am speaking of the differences in gene expression over a population. If you compare the population of Brazillian and argentinian soccer players, then you will find that brazillians tend to overpower the argies.

EDIT: Ofcourse it is a bit difficult to imagine in football (considering tecnnique > atheleticism). However, sports like american football and basketball usually favour the faster and the stronger. These sports are absolutely dominated by negroids more so than caucasians. If you ask the same question to a north american, he will prolly jokingly come to the same conclusion as I did.

I just can't wait for the tournament to start. Maybe this year, I might place a bet on the soccer world cup this year. Didn't do any in 2006 because I lost quite some money in 2002. Damn you, France.

England will win, obviously.

Uruguay is gonna be dangerous in group A, which I think is the deadliest of the groups...

They have two of the best strikers in the moment..

Forlan was Pichichi last season, for the second time in his career, and adds up 23 goals this season, 1 of them recently that eliminated giants Liverpool out of the Uefa league.. Everybody knows Forlan and his goal scoring potential..

But the best striker statistically in Europe right now isn't Messi, Ronaldo, Rooney, or Higuian... Uruguayan Luis Suarez, has 35 goals in 34 games this season for Ajax in the league, and 47 goals in 46 games in all competitions this sason... Ridiculously stupid stats, the best i've seen to be honest!

Hopefully experience and quality of Forlan, and the youth and hunger of Luis Suarez can combine to not only make it through in the group, but to score 3-4 goals on the Mexicans :)

Watch out for this deadly combo.
