    The World Cup is upon us once again. Unfortunately Team USA failed to qualify (I'm looking at you Trinidad and Tobago), so I can't cheers for my home team. Spain, Brazil or Germany are favored to win, but I'd love to see an underdog take home the trophy. So, which teams are you cheering on and who do you pick to win it all?

    I’d like to see Argentina win one for Messi, but I expect Germany will hoist the trophy.

    I could get behind that, I like Messi a lot. My son is a fan of CR7, though.

    We aren’t in it so I just cheer for any team from a country I’ve worked in, so France, Germany, England, Australia.
    And because it looks like a great vacation spot: Croatia.

    I'm tossing my cheering behind Belgium. Them monks make some awesome beer. Figure I can get behind them for no other reason than that!

    I'll add, I was pulling for Saudi Arabia today. I would have loved to see the thugs going nuts. Anyone catching that E:60 report?

    Germany FTW! It'd be nice to see a long shot like Iceland or Costa Rica pull it off.

    Brilliant, thanks for the upload @bodia !!

    Breakfast TV yesterday, a Scottish football pundit (in Russia) having an argument with an ex-Member of Parliament! Pundit says “I’ve put a bet on for England to win. If they do, I get a pay-out. It will be worth losing the money when they get knocked out!”:D

    Because Futbol is so low on my richter scale I'm not gonna look that one up, but I'll take your word for it. I'm addicted to boxing & rugby 7s, so I can still get with the European thing a little (for a yank;)).

    Still pulling for these viking descendants to pull off an upset though.

    The Portugal-Spain match was amazing--easily one of the best games I've seen.
