And I'm loving the vuvuzelas!
Yeah, ambient lovers take note! It's like one long drone-fest for a couple hours with those things. As one of the few "Americans" to post, and I use that in quotes because my wife who's from South America doesn't understand why we USA'ans claim ownership of 2 whole continents, I've been enjoying what little I've seen so far. Paraguay is on vs. Italy, and the former just went up 1-0.
This is on the Spanish channel and not sure how live this game really is, but I often prefer the spanish announcers. With them, when there's a goal, you know it whether you're in the room or not...
2002 was the first year I ever watched a World Cup and surprisingly I was enthralled, especially with Brazil's play- just amazing. In '-06 the France vs. Italy game was one of the few games I caught, and for people who like drama infused with their sports, it's definitely there, just in a different form. Like in the form of headbutts to get you kicked out when the game is on the line, for example.
