Y'know... That other little known game where the ball is ball shaped and the majority of the players actually have to use their feet to control it.

Hey, muricans! What is the best app for streaming this? Looking for two features:

1. The ability to see ALL games (i think fox shows only US games and fox sports shows only non-US, but it’s two separate streaming services and fees…?? Seems like it used to be a lot easier to watch all the games in D…)

2. The ability to watch the games after the fact without dixking around with “saving” shit. Kinda like watching the DH WC on redbull tv…

I assume the FBWC is geo-blocked to the moon, thus directing my Q at the americans. However, if there is a great service outside murica that can be accessed via vpn, do tell!

thx

I think Peacock has them all. Not sure on cost as it's bundled through our Xfinity cable.

I was afraid to bring up the kickball world champs. The best thing about this tournament is the USA will be 3 and out and Berhalter will finally get shitcanned.

Not watching it since I feel about watching this sport kind of like going to Catholic Churches. Why would I support a shitty organization in bed with dictators?

Sportswashing is bad.

In the before times I might have planned a work trip to coincide with murica vs hingland and then bought you an adult beverage.

But given I'm still mentally broken from almost dying in the summer I still avoid people and no way could I cram into a bar.

Football/Soccer is such a low scoring game that statistically speaking for any given match, the better team will only win about 56% of the time. Doesn't mean a shitty team can win the world cup, but the luckiest good team will and rarely the best team. Seems pretty pointless to get excited about a 90 minute coin toss.

Hey now, cozying up to dictators, hosting events in arenas built by slaves and accepting bribes is fine as long as the sport in question is one we like.

All ball sports are terrible, the only entertaining thing about it is watching Quatar spends millions ruining their reputation and seeing how many reporters and players sneak rainbows flags onto the field

I tend to enjoy the women's matches. I particularly like watching the highlights where they take off their jerseys and slide on their knees across the pitch in a sport bra. Interestingly a cursory google search doesn't yield satisfactory results for me if I enter a search titled "take off their jerseys and slide on their knees across the pitch in a sports bra". The one video I found interesting enough to watch involved lesbianism and was to long after a bit. They both had small tits and I quickly lost interest. (satire)

All there is in the media here feels like how Qatar has treated the migrant works and don't like to hear about gay people. My interest is close to zero about this world cup.

UCI is bad for the sport but it doesn't let blood thirsty dictators wash their image through their organization. I'm sure UCI is not run by the best people but at least they are not saying Putin is a great, peaceful guy (and the current FIFA leader did say that).

Said like a true expert on the game.
Mercan sports are so high scoring it just becomes super repetitive... Bit like watching you dumb fucks empty rounds from your guns.

Yeah merica number one!

I am not much for watching sports.

I do enjoy poor South American countries beating, well, every team they play.


Guess I can spend Thanksgiving thinking about how Qatar is a slave driven country instead of thinking about how I am glad I wasn't born a Native American.

Sorry you are still feeling the effects of the 'vid. You should let us know when you're back in town for a green juice and whispered conversation.

I watched the USA game in an Argentinean bar with a bunch of Scottish and English blokes. For Friday's Oosa vs Ingerland I'll be out at the family compound, revisiting past trauma and creating some new ones.

At least they are up front about it. The rest of the world hides behind armbands and fingerpointing while all the same shit happens anyway.

I've got it on in the background while I "work from home." Sure I could do without the diving and knee grabbing, but pretty much every sport has that nonsense. Although in the NFL players do that just to stop the clock when their team is out of timeouts...not so much to try to get calls from the officials.
