Discuss about the World Cup. This is the only place that seems logical since there is no sports section. Let me just say one thing...
ENGLAND IS WINNING!

No-one can stop Trinidad and Tobago. Everybody, and I mean everybody wants them to win.
Not a winner anymore.

Yeah, it should really just be about Europeans who live and breathe soccer.

And I'm not being sarcastic. The US should go just because we're part of the world, but we shouldn't win. Germany should.

Actually, it did - happened in some south american country a few years ago.  Guy scored an own goal in the world cup, and a few days or weeks after he returned back to the country, he was murdered (probably by some mafia, drug cartel, or other major betting ring).

Aside from that, go Germany!

No, I meant I couldn't understand what he was trying to say. Now you've explained it, it makes sense.

Where can I get a simple tournament board of who won and lost? Something like this:

It's a game of football. No human brain could comprehend the rules of football. If you ever attempt to learn the "offside" rule, be it not on my hands that your brain explodes.

Football tournament systems are at least as complicated, if not more so. Even test cricket is simple in comparison.

If you still want to learn, go to your nearest library, ask for the "Footbanomicron." Just remember that I warned you.
Not a winner anymore.
