Why is there no WC thread here yet? OK, I'll start -- I have been invited to a WC-viewing party at an England-themed restaurant this morning for the England/Belgium game. Both teams are through to the round of 16 no matter what the result is of this game or the other game in their group. If the coaches are smart, they will sit anyone with a yellow card, or who needs rest for a nagging injury, or who has pissed the coach off recently. Sounds like a good excuse to drink warm beer and munch on appetizers that would be ruled inedible at any other bar or restaurant in the county.
