    South Korea scoring in injury time like a boss! Nice job guys, Mexico owes you a drink. For sure Ktown is going to be all smiles today. Congrats to both clubs.

    These quarters are seriously ramping up to something special. Brazil got bounced!!! Augusto (8) had two great looks and shanked twice after scoring that header. Bruh. I know you're a sub but dayuuuuum. Belgium's goalie- 'hand of god' save on Neymar?

    Good times. Can't wait for tomorrow...

    This Swedish paper's introduction of its players to England had me laughing

    Well, he’s tall and blond and all that. And half Danish. But a more thorough look into his cv will tell you that he’s literally a s*** Jamie Vardy

    The English EWF "September" song is the best so far of World Cup.

    Ha! Fantastic. I spent fifteen minutes talking about the Croatia v. Russia game with a coworker, we're going to try and sneak out tomorrow for the France v. Belgium second half (shhhhh). Croatia totally gutted that win out in amazing fashion, England will be playing a tired team which has to be an advantage at this point. Then again 1966* was still a long time ago for a reason, best of luck to them both.



    *Mad Men did a scene where Draper and the English guy in the office watched the match (which is the only reason I know about the Brits last cup win because the English dude was supa stoked that they beat 'the Jerry’s'-can i call German people Jerrys' ala world war I slang?- ) at a pub.

    ^^ Nice Mad Men reference. I forgot about that.

    England V France in the final.



    Rebecca: You’re not ready at all!

    Lane: We have time. The first half of a football match is just flirting.

    Rebecca: Well, I’d like to get there, have a nice seat, enjoy the chit-chat.

    Lane: If it’s a matter of you and I having a nice lunch, perhaps a ride in the boats in the park.

    Rebecca: You don’t even know what’s good for you. Spending an afternoon in the park with our friends?

    Lane: One, they’re your friends, and recent ones at that. Two, I have no fond memories of hours spending out watching football. Three…..

    Rebecca: You love football!

    Lane: No, that’s my father. And I hate this business of bringing England over in pieces. It’s strictly for the homesick.

    Rebecca: But [the pub] is for immigrants like us.

    Lane: (sighing) How lovely your face becomes when you tell me you need something.

    Rebecca: I’d be happy if you’d just pretend to have a good time.

    Lane: Then pretend, I shall.

    Later, the scene moves to a British pub in NYC. In the background, a black-and-white TV is showing the end of the match at Wembley. Pub patrons in English garb, including Lane, celebrate by singing “God Save the Queen.”

    Well after the match has ended, the Lanes join Edwin Baker, a Jaguar executive, and his wife for dinner at a quiet table.

    Mrs. Baker, directing her comments at the men: Now I want both of you to make a pledge that this is the end of football for some time.

    Edwin: We beat the bloody Jerries for the World Cup, darling! That is the end of football.

    Cut to the agency’s conference room, where the partners are gathered for a meeting.

    Lane: Excuse me, gentlemen, if I may, I have a bit of new business.

    Pete: Taking leave again?

    Lane: Not at all. I don’t know if you are aware, but England won the World Cup!

    Roger: Cup of what?

    Ha! Thanks. Glad you liked it. Might start re-watching Mad Men. I listened to a Nerdist podcast that described that show as a testament to loneliness. Which seems pretty spot-on, so i'd like to watch it through that filter. Plus the whole Jon Hamm free balling in those tight suits like a Boss! [sorry, sorry, sorry, if its funny to me i type it]

    Anyway, everyone thinks France is a gimme but if the Belgium goalie shows up, it will be a dog fight. But if he doesn't, 8-0 France. Pretty excited. Since i'm that person: Belgium v. Croatia final. At this point there are no bad combinations of teams.
