We've tried to have threads about individual sports or events in the past.  How about one unified thread?  All sports welcome!

So, World Cup.  Who do you think will win?  How badly is your country doing? Do Ivory Coast fans have the best hats?

Woah, we scored in the first minute?  Since when do things happen in the first half hour of a soccer game?

How are the extra minutes after the 90th minute determined and added onto play?

Is it for sloppy play?

I'm pretty sure the extra time is calculated based on the amount of 'dead' time during the match, like when a referee hands out cards or somebody is injured.
Though don't quote me on that, I'm not that big a football fan. But with it being so popular here, it's pretty hard not to pick some stuff up.

Why don't they just stop the clock for commercial breaks like a normal sport?
