It’s pretty great that my neighborhood bar in PDX with one small TV had this game on when I walked in. And about 10 of the 20 people here are actively watching.

F the rain. Sort of stuck (don’t want to drive in this disaster)
Have DVR set so will probably start about 75 minutes (60 playing) late

DirecTV and Nexstar are in the middle of a dispute, blacking out Fox affiliates all over the country, including our B&B in Kentucky. No Telemundo to save us. Get to watch this on an iPad.

Has there been much Maori representation or celebration so far? This is the first game I've seen. Seemed pretty white in the lead up -- just wondering if they've made it a thing so far.

Looks like a knee to the thigh & a hard landing. Ouch.

Ertz at CB makes sense if you’re set up to dominate possession.

Looking forward to seeing DeMelo in action.

Little disappointed with the USA if I'm honest. Not really sharp. Lots of passes to nowhere and putting themselves in pressure when they don't really need to.

First game at the World Cup is often cagey. They’re also playing against a dangerous team (dangerous to their health, not to their ability to win).
