As if you didn’t get enough World Cup coverage, I am here tonight because MicheladaTioRoberto has been forced to do work at inconvenient times for the Open Thread.
So, first things first. Following today’s games, here is how the first two groups ended up:
GROUP A WINNER: Uruguay
GROUP A RUNNERUP: Russia
GROUP B WINNER: Spain
GROUP B RUNNERUP: Portugal
That means we will have Russia playing Spain at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Sunday at 7 AM Pacific and Uruguay playing Portugal at Fisht Stadium in Sochi on Saturday at 11 AM Pacific.
Ok, fiiiiine, I can hear you all the way out here on the Best Coast. What else is going in besides the World Cup?
If you haven’t seen Everybody Wants Some, I highly recommend it. It’s set in a college baseball team in Texas and lets just say this audience will like it.
Today, the Arkansas Razorbacks take on the Oregon State Beavers in Game 1 of the College World Series final series. It’s a three game series and the winner of two games gets the National Championship. ESPN will broadcast in the States. I couldn’t see a listing for Canada.
Having grown up on the West Coast and having attended a Pac 12 school, I know all the double entendre cheerleading yells.
TRIM THOSE BEAVERS!
POUND THE BEAVERS!
I invite you to add your own in the comments.
ESPN and TSN will follow up the College World Series broadcast with Cubs-Dodgers in the US and Canada, respectively.
So, you can get your share of this:
Enjoy the games everyone!
