    The Nigerians are pissed off that they couldn't take their live chickens to the game.

    That'll be there excuse, it seems.

    Who DOESN"T take live barnyard animals to sporting events these days???

    Oh, I agree, they are certainly that.

    Sometimes in a good way. But plenty of times in a bad way too...

    They could prosper, with all their resources, but aren't, exactly, precisely because they refuse to emulate more successful countries, like Norway, as far as managing their oil, for example...

    Thee will be plenty more opportunities for "hooliganism" don't you think?

    I mean, this is just the first weekend.

    Yeah, they banned that, this time, in Russia, they don't want ANY live animals in stadiums: Nigeria’s Lucky Chickens Banned From World Cup Stadiums

    Sanitation and such, you know.

    There was no lack of support for the homeboys either though lmao

    Russia is winning 3 - 0, btw, for once haha But, more on that game later.

    Other foreign fans



    and lots more here: "Much nicer than expected" lol

    Nursultan Nazarbayev, the dictator of neighbouring Kazakhstan, signs a football with Russian WC mascot Zabivaka, as he arrives in Moscow today to hang out with Putin for the festivities


    The Opening Ceremony, which looks like something out of North Korea, to me

    except for Robbie Williams, whom North Korea will never have haha


    and, yeah, he DID middle finger the camera, at one point: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95SfH8Qii6Q

    Continued in next post
    I would ask "who the fuck cares", but evidently some do.

    Even you cared enough to type up a past in the thread lol

    But, actually, most of the world, aside from exceptional, as usual, Americans, cares very much about football/soccer, and the World Cup

    Not many Americans care, but what else we got right now?

    NBA is done, Football and hockey are nowhere near, baseball is all we got.

    And regular season baseball doesn't excite too many.

    This World Cup stuff is a Communist plot to destroy the west...

    Good news, Mohamed Salah will play for Egypt against Russia on Tuesday, he is recovered from his injury: World Cup 2018: Egypt forward Mohamed Salah fit to face Russia

    Good news for Egypt, anyhow. Less so for Russia, obviously lol

    It IS the worlds sport.

    But, how good can it be, really, if we ain't in it?
