World Cup of Soccer

Hey all,

I was out and about this weekend in some of the residential downtown areas and found myself on Dundas St. W near Ossington. Now, if anyone knows Toronto well, they can tell you that this is a bustling hive for the Portuguese community and I duly noted almost [b]every single car[/b] was adorned with their nations flag, in true spirit of the games over in Germany.

Seeing as those Portuguese will be very happy now that they beat the Holland team to go through, I have to ask.... anybody here following the soccer now (now that hockey is gone for another few months!) and who are you following/why and what are your thoughts both on the games themselves, but also the fan behaviour (the aforementioned neighbourhood already had one bit of rowdiness going on a few days ago).

For me personally, soccer is more a game to play than to watch and I don't actively follow any team. I have a lingering feeling of pride for the English team, so if anyone, then I'd support them.
