Since apparently Estonia isn't in this "World Cup" or whatever I am rooting for Korea. Before I left for work this morning I watched the Koreans defeat those pesky Spainards on penalty kicks.

One of the Koreans has the GREATEST HAIR EVER on a sports star. I mean its mad scientist and everything. That guy made me a fan of Korea and had me rolling on the floor in laughter at 4:30 this morning. Go Koreans!

On a final note I think World Cup teams should have nicknames. Like the United States Freedom and Japan Pokemons. That would rock.

Now if the rest of the world would just wise up and stop calling it football.....

Some of the countries do have nicknames:

Korea and Belgium(I think) both go by the Red Devils
Italy: The Azzurri
USA: The Eagles(or is that their rugby team?)
Senegal: Lions
South Africa: Bafana Bafana(The Boys)

I'm sure there's others I'm missing...

Good for Korea to make the final four, although it's troublesome that there's been dubious calls for their past three matches now...

I agree, but at least now is one of those rare times that I can admit to watching Univision without getting laughed at.

The World Cup is SOOOO rigged.

Of course, its not rigged enough for a Korea/Japan final...although I would have loved to see that purely for the political mess that would have erupted over the location of the final game. They would have had to have the game in Taiwan or something.

I've got to think Brazil has SOME kind of team name, but I wouldn't have a clue what.

The locale of the final was set ahead of time. It's in Japan, but I forget which city. Even if South Korea makes the finals - which might just happen given all the other crazy crap that's been going on - I think they'll be playing there.

I imagine a few people will make the boat trip over to see that game.

Talking about the Korean with the hair, what about the guy in the mask?! What exactly is going on there? Is it for protection or a fashion statement? And if the latter, why is it being allowed? Seems odd.

Of course it is. There is no way Korea should be in the semifinals.

400,000 Italian emailers can't be wrong.

And oh yeah, NASCAR's fixed too.

The mask is a protective headgear which is approved by FIFA. Paul Gascoigne wore one for a while too.

Myself, I'm buying into the theory that the referees and linesmen from nations where football is smaller (Ghana, Egypt, Ecuador) are more likely to be swayed by the hugely partisan crowd. The Italian game, in my opinion, was mostly fine and I wouldn't've thought twice about the quality of reffing in it. The Spain / Korea match was *so* bad, that the Italy/Korea game is now also questionable.

Hey aureole, long time no see.

Do you know if the mask is covering an injury or preventative?

I believe it's for protection. Gazza had one after an errant elbow to the face if I remember correctly, and the mask sure wasn't effective in preventing any head damage in his case anyway... .

Okay, Germany ended the home nation debacle...

All talk of rigged matches aside, Korea had an awesome run, and I was really impressed.

Even though Spain won.

Good job, Korea.

The conspiracy theorists really shot themselves in the foot by moving it further and stating that the Koreans MUST be on some sort of drug to play so well! LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME. Can't sides just accept the breaks they get? You can bet your bottom dollar that Italy wouldn't be bitching if THEY'D gone through on a coupla controversial decisions.

Actually, they probably still would have complained about the officiating too. Hell, even the winning sides are making comments about how poorly this has been officiated.

The Korean player with the face mask broke his nose in the game against Italy. I think Vieri nailed him with an elbow, but I could be wrong.

Korea looked a touch flat today in the 3rd place match-Sukur scored 13 seconds in! Wow.

Excellent showing for both teams, and a great display of sportsmanship after the game as the teams locked arms and went to the fans.

63 matches down, one more to go. It's always sad at the end of the tournament...
