    Germany, Spain, Croatia all playing tonight. Japan's not bad either.

    Overall a bit boring before the quarter finals as it always is. What an upset in the Argentina Saudi match last evening though.

    According to someone else who studies at a similar uni.. the model does not factor in a lot of current data - player form, injuries, bribes (which worked in the case of Saudi - )...

    Their uni model is have some booze and root for whatever their national team is or their friends national teams...

    Given all the bad karma ... I have a feeling qatar or Saudi will win the world cup..

    Budweiser will ship the unsold Buds to the country that wins the tournament, the company said in a tweet. The company confirmed the plans in a statement to CNN Business, writing that it “wants to bring this celebration from the FIFA World Cup stadiums to the winning country’s fans.”

    “We will host the ultimate championship celebration for the winning country. Because, for the winning fans, they’ve taken the world. More details will be shared when we get closer to the finals,” an Anheuser-Busch InBev spokesperson said in a statement.

    Just wondering, couldn't China have a "Mask Filter" for foreign sports events? I mean, there are cat ear filters, mask filters should be easy to do. Of course for the players too. And a few marshmallow people thrown in too

    Been out of it for a couple of days. Have I missed something about the Wales game, schedule shows it should have been played by now but no result showing?
