“It’s not been as entertaining as we thought it might be. But, we still have another half to go!” – JP Dellacamera on Fox, about #SENCOL (may as well be for #JPNPOL, too). #AWCHQ ⚽️

It ends… today. The group stage of the 2018 #WorldCup, that is. We start in Group H, with Japan vs Poland & Senegal vs Colombia. #POL is already eliminated, but the other 3 could all possibly advance! What kind of games are we in store for today? #AWCHQ #JPNPOL #SENCOL ⚽️

…and now I’m caught up with the present! Those later games weren’t bad; credit to #CRC for giving #SUI a tough game. Belatedly, my pick if I have to make one for today’s games is: Korea vs. Germany. Tomorrow: we finish the group stage! #AWCHQ #SERBRA #SUICRC ⚽️

Greetings from the past! Another travel day for me means delayed viewing, I’m still in the first halves of the Group E games: #SER & #BRA duking it out to get to the knockout rounds; SUI looking for a result against already-eliminated #CRC. #AWCHQ #SERBRA #SUICRC ⚽️

Four teams, two games, round of 16 awaits one, adds up to: zero excitement so far. Okay, maybe not zero. Zero point six three seven excitement so far. Hoping for more in the second 45! #AWCHQ #MEXSWE #KORGER ⚽️

A new day, & two more groups to finish! Today we ditch alphabetical order & start in Group F, with Korea Republic vs. Germany (#KORGER, should be sponsored by Kroger) on one screen, with Mexico vs. Sweden on the other. Any 2 of these could advance! #AWCHQ #MEXSWE ⚽️

And here we go with the second pair: #NGA v #ARG and #ISL v #CRO. Lots of scenarios to juggle here, too. Will this be the final episode of The Messi Show in this 2018 #WorldCup season? #AWCHQ #NGAARG #ISLCRO ⚽️

Well there you go. Not that #AUS v #PER was amazing, but #FRA v #DEN really was a snoozer. If you wanted evidence for why it’s worth having “eliminated” teams play out their third game, that’s not a bad way to make the case. #AWCHQ #FRADEN #AUSPER ⚽️
