For once, I wish there were an "I don't care/don't watch" option.

Hrodulf and Bjornolfr, you will not be forgotten.

I would have rather put I don't care, or something along those lines ... but I just put US only because that's the country I live in, so why not vote them?

... but I honestly don't care who wins.

Yes yes, I know I make longwinded comments, but that's just me >.<
I should proof read my comments more, but I won't...
So keep in mind I'm filled with typos

Honestly, even Bakaupdates? Even you??

bigrazz Oh well. Seriously, please add a "I don't watch soccer" option, I really would love to see how many people really care about this!

It's not that I like or care much "soccer" but in many countries it's a non avoidable topic, I almost didn't watch my country last game but I still heard people blocks away yelling.

dreaming or just not knowing, at the beggining Brazil and Argentina were strong candidates and the only reason I can't spot thinking (not wanting) they could win it's because I'm not trusting the referees.
most strong teams aren't doing very good so I'm rooting for the weak teams and expect that a new country reach the cup

I didn't put so much atention to their game... was it good? I could only get mad at watching how much they depend on naturalization

As much as I want the US to go far, I think that Brazil and the Dutch will be the teams to beat when push comes to shove in the coming weeks. The unfinished business factor will be a huge motivator for the Netherlands since the last WC final and I believe that Robin and Robben will lead them to victory on their shoulders if need be if the occasion required.

Brazil will have the hometown crowd and as the Croatia game showed, some officiating going their way as well. But if they can get their form together they'll be deadly and be favorites to win it all imo.

France is going to be in the conversation as well. Looking great offensively.

The Netherlands because I live there but frankly I do not care about it all. To be honest I would have preferred them to lose in the qualification rounds ;p that way there would be less of a fuss about it.

Remember not to vote for the country you hope will win, but the one you think will win.
I think Brazil have the highest chances, being already a strong team and hosting the event. But Germany made a really impressive debut.

The Chicago Cubs will win the World Series this year, the Detroit Lions will win the Super Bowl, and the United States will win the World Cup.

Oh, you're such a bad boy. I'm in awe and admiration for your gratuitous aggressiveness.

On topic, Germany had a difficult time with Ghana, but they're still one of the most impressive team in the tournament. I hope Italy's adventure won't end this Tuesday...

How is there no "don't care" option? And not only that but my country didn't even make it in...

What do you mean? It's the correct meme. Also, I could care less as well. I don't think many manga readers are avid soccer/football or sports fans in general.

It isn't that manga readers are avid football fans, it's that many countries are and there's a bug that infects you with a bit of emotion towards it even if you're not a big fan
