Welcome to the 2022 edition!

This year's installment includes a bold and unpopular tactic by restricting alcohol sales inside and around the perimeter of the stadiums. But back for another go is, exploitation of laborers and the continued negligence of human rights. Oh... and Team USA is back baby!!!

Anywho, I know this particular year is carrying some extra controversy so if we are collectively drowning this one out, I got no problem with that. But we've had some fun in the past with these (World Cup Threads), and figured I'd break the ice once again.

I was planning to boycot it from my living room. But then you hear that all the big name players are there: Ronaldo, Messi, Kane...
And then you hear that Saudi Arabia have taken the lead against Messi's Argentina!
Cracking goals from Saudi too! And some heroic defending.
Congrats to Saudi; an incredible result.
I might end up watching it after all. Let's see if I have any nagging dreams about the suffering of the workers who built the stadiums.

I actually canceled most of my sleep for this morning by staying up and catching the early part of the first half of Argentina VS. Saudi Arabia. I turned it off after what I thought was Argentina's second (Lautaro Martinez goal) but apparently that too got overturned via VAR. Messi's second should have never been overturned though, an offside because of shoulder-lean is bullshit. I don't watch enough of this sport to have a stern take on this, but IMO your entire body should be offside to reverse a goal, no?

But yeah this result is shocking to see after what I saw most of the first half. I will definitely  be watching the replay later today to see what the fuck happened.



For those boycotting, I salute you.



Mexico v Poland

Rooting for Mexico here. I'm 50% Polish, but I'm all about backing my American Hispanic countries.

Well if Arcadia was specifically commissioned by Glastonbury to make the spider set-up, I could understand. But if it was something that Arcadia did as part of their curation for Glastonbury, what's the problem?

This world cup is pretty interesting atm.
Germany loses to Japan, Argentina loses to SA and Croatia barely survived Marocco.
So far it's anything but boring, methinks.

Definitely some fun upsets. Wasn’t a fan of the officiating for USA vs Wales, but overall for tournament it has been relatively quiet.

The Americas have struggled, though. Ecuador the only bright spot but that’s taking down inexperienced host country. We’ll see if Canada can hang…

We taking friendly wagers for Friday? (USA v England)

As we say here - ball is round.

Haha!!! That’s brutal.

But maybe USA gets 2-1 odds and if we win, surrenders another annoying late night host in Jimmy Fallon, even though no English affiliation.
