Does anyone know what is going to happen with the univision stream? Are they going to show both games or just one? Any one that can read Spanish, or that knows the site, and could help me out would be amazing.

Right now, I just have the link that takes you directly to the streamed game bookmarked.

Today I will be productive and not watch any of the matches.

Translation: I have a lot of catching up to do because I've been watching so many matches.

Same here I-270. I guess that means I should stop "wasting time" on this site too.

9 minutes in the Portugal-N. Korea match and the Portuguese already looking more dangerous. As I type that Korea almost score from distance.

Is that the same An-yong from Arrested Development.

I subbed in Miereles last night :)

Are we sure that France will show up for the match?

Hello, RK.

Dear Leader will not be pleased...

Portugal's turning on the style

Posted by: Kev29 | June 21, 2010 8:53 AM | Report abuse

Portugal completely tearing apart the Korean defense. Ronaldo at the center of at least three of them.

An-yong.

What is North Korea's coach saying to Dear Leader right now on their invisible telephone system?


My bet: Ive made a huge mistake.

Posted by: JacobfromAtlanta-ish | June 21, 2010 9:13 AM | Report abuse

Hey, CR even got one.

Posted by: Reignking | June 21, 2010 9:18 AM | Report abuse

North Korea's ship has been sunk.

Posted by: asfoolasiam | June 21, 2010 9:20 AM | Report abuse

So Cote d'Ivoire has to beat DPRK by 8 goals to advance and hope Portugal loses to Brazil in the Battle of the Dive. Too bad Ronaldo won't be able to get his RM teammate Kaka thrown out with a wink and a smile.

Last 730 am game...I enjoyed a little football before work.

TOUCHDOWN!

Posted by: Reignking | June 21, 2010 9:24 AM | Report abuse

I thought North Korea gave a fine performance and were undone only by the referee's incompetence.

I wish there was a way to watch the games on tivo spoiler free (no ticker updates and I would mute it as to not hear any announcer updates. )

Surely, this will be an option at some point....

...or you just go to the bar and watch them both.
