2014 World Cup open thread: A big rematch, our neighbors, and unknowns

Kevin C. Cox

The World Cup marches on after a controversial opening day; despite Brazil winning a penalty on a dive—who'd have thought?!—the world hasn't imploded, exploded, or gone through any other similar sort of -ploding crisis.

It's an open thread, so share your comments, thoughts, innermost feelings, and funny pictures of cats. It'll be fun, we promise.

The games

All times Mountain Daylight Time

  • 10 a.m., Mexico v. Cameroon. We get to see our neighbors against, well, Cameroon. Will they look as bad as they've sometimes looked, or as good as we've seen them look on other occasions?
  • 1 p.m., Spain v. Netherlands. A rematch of the 2010 World Cup Final? I think we're all in for this one.
  • 4 p.m., Chile v. Australia. So ... Chile and Australia, yeah? I don't know much about either of these teams, and I'm willing to bet that most of you don't either. Question marks abound.

Coming up tomorrow

Colombia and Greece, 10 a.m.; Uruguay and Costa Rica, 1 p.m.; England and Italy, 4 p.m.; Real Salt Lake and Atlanta Silverbacks, 6 p.m. (live stream); Ivory Coast and Japan, 7 p.m.

How do I watch the games?

Today's matches are on ESPN 2 and are being streamed on their WatchESPN service.

Anything else I should know?

Probably, but let's have some fun and watch some soccer.
