Anyone else watching the World Cup? This year is the first time that I've paid attention to soccer, and I honestly can say that I am now a fan of the sport. So now it's down to Italy and France. Who are you guys rooting for?

I think the Italians will win. :yes:

They seem to have the most stamina and the best theatrical productions (ie. flops/pretend injuries) of any team.

Although do I want the Italians to win? I am part French and everyone hates on the French.

I guess I want the Italians to win.:unsure:

The French don't even like their own team that much.

There was a big article about how the French don't like the fact that half the team aren't native-born, but rent-a-French dudes that were born in other countries and some are of the Muslim faith.

So, if the French people don't like their team that much, why should anyone else? :icon_confused:

All Italy needs to do is send some scrub out there to put the spikes to Zidane's knee. Then the French are done for. :icon_mrgreen:

Yup.

Zinedine Zidane

:icon_mrgreen:

It's hard for me to root for the French when the French people themselves aren't too excited about their own team.
Yeah bit that dude rocks. I wasn't for the French at all but after seeing him in a few games, I came to the conclusion that he's the best player in the tournament and he was supposed to be washed up.

I'm 1/2 French... and considering my French roots are from near the France, Italy border.... who knows if I don't have a sliver of Italian in me somewhere.... :lol: :icon_eek: :lol:

GO FRENCHIES..... :icon_banana: :icon_banana: :icon_banana:


So many people I know are rooting for the Italians just because they hate the French.... I'm not all that fond of the French either.... BUT.... have to go with my roots on this one...:tup:

He is by no means the best player in the tournament. :no:

In my travels I've noticed that the French in France are snootier than the French that travel. When I've met a French person outside of France, they were pretty cool. I think travelers have to learn to deal with other people. But in France, they were some of the rudest, snootiest, people I've ever met. This is of course just my humble opinion.

That said, I hope Italy wins! :tup:

I've noticed that myself.

About 15 years ago, I met this pretty French chick that was here on a student VISA and was working in a strip club (evidently Europeans have no problems with this :D ).

She was very nice and sexy. And no, she didn't have the stereotypical unshaven armpits and legs.

She and I dated for about 4 months until she returned to France, since her VISA had expired.

One of the greatest summers I've had.

However, this was also when France had a better opinion of the US than it does now.

I had one of those "vacation" French chicks too. Met her in Spain one summer, and then she came out to the US and spent the next summer with me. She shaved too. Pasquale ..........
