Yeah, Italia (first) and Spain were both sent home by poor officiating 
more than a lack of quality. Though (no offence meant here, David) I was 
shocked by Italy's response to the mess. Sacking Ahn and attacking 
Korean nationals outside their own embassy is not what I would call 

I thought that Japan did well, though they showed a lack of creativity
against Turkiye, and that cost them. How about Turkiye getting past that 
arrogant Senegal team! That made me very happy, though I felt bad for 
poor Hakan Sukur, who was obviously hurting pretty badly from his injuries.

And, as an American of heavy and recent Irish descent, I was very proud 
of both of those teams. Germany and Spain (in that order) got past the 
US and Ireland (respectively) more due to luck than anything else. A 
good showing for both squads, especially the Americans, who finally 
showed the world what I have been saying for two years now: US Football 
ain't no joke anymore.

Sorry for this lack of topicality, back to our regularly scheduled geekcast.
