So far I have watched 11 complete games, and all (31) summaries.

I'm tired and may skip Spain-Honduras (starting in about an hour). Are there any World Cup fanatics here, or are you just regular fans like me?

I try to get highlights between the ads I don't focus on on the networks news
golf, american football, baseball, too.
I wish I had time to watch a whole game. maybe when I retire.

On the West Coast the first game is at 4:30AM, followed by 7AM and 11:30AM games. That way I can get 1.5-2 games in before work, and my TIVO will catch the rest.

I only watch a few games live. Mostly I just avoid soccer news during the day and watch a couple of games after dinner. If a game isn't interesting I quickly skip over it to watch something else. I've watched a out 15 full games so far.

They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Watched about six or so. Watching on the Hispanic network even though I don't understand most of what the commentators are saying.

But I really LOVE that there are NO commercials during the halves; just continuous play. grinning smiley

We've got the games on in the lounge area... which is conveniently just outside my office. This has cut somewhat into my productivity.

The first games of the day are a bit too early for me on the west coast. I can wake up in the morning, make some coffee, and sit down to the second match before I start work. The third match starts around lunchtime, and I just pull it up online if I'm interested and kind of half-watch it while I'm working.

Sure you are. We all know thats what's really going on is that you half-work while you're watching.

10 pm sportscenter is plenty.

in the end, it doesnt matter how you play the game, all that matters is who wins or loses.

no one cares or can remember who came in second for the last 10 years, but the winners -- sure.

same as all sports. =(

If that was all that mattered then I would have absolutely no interest in sports whatsoever. To me, watching the skills and tactics of the players as they perform is the only thing of interest. The scores, statistics, and who won/lost are secondary, if that. Case in point, my favorite game from the world cup so far was the Brazil/New Zealand game. It was a tie.
