Who are you cheering for in the World Cup. If you live in the States and your answer is U.S.A but in a back up team as well.

I have to go with my heritage and say Portugal. Plus we have the most kick ass fight song ever naa.na.na.na.na.naa Por-tugal, Por-tugal *repeat often*

I also like Sweden, I got a good friend who's from Scandinavia (Finland) so I'd like her to be happy as well.

Camaroon or Nigeria.

I would like an African team to win so that the European/South American dominance is broken.

Being Canadian, World Cup tournaments depress me. Are we ever going to qualify again?

From a family standpoint, I support England & South Africa(usually Holland, but...)

I'm also pulling for the Irish this year, I'm really liking the Irish spirit.

Side note: I live in Woodbridge, a very Italian area of the Toronto area. There are STILL people driving up and down the streets with flags and honking horns 9 hours after the game ended-I shudder to think what will happen here if Italy ends up winning the whole thing. Anybody but Italy, PLEASE!

Yeah, Iam with The Goon. If Italy wins, it becomes just un-freakin'-believable in this city...

As for teams, I always hope that England will do well, which they never do...

Also from a roots standpoint, gotta cheer for the Irish!!!

I'd also like to see one of the unsung teams do well, like Korea or Japan....

Well, I'm American, so first choice is USA.

I have $25 on Cameroon at 60:1 odds, so they're second choice. Plus what team name is cooler than "the Indomitable Lions"?

Lastly my best friend is a soccer nut who lives and dies with Italy, and plus I have 5:1 on them too, so they're third choice :)

Having said that...Spain all the way.

Whoever is playing England. Ha ha just kidding ... maybe.

Indomitable Lions of Cameroon all the way. If a European team is to take it, Spain or Portugal. If a South American team, Ecuador! (Seriously, I fell in love with them when they came to Edmonton a few years back to play a friendly mini-tournament there) But given that they have no chance, I'll have to go with good old Brazil.

Jeez, I seem to be cheering for quite a few teams.

I've got to go with my (half) blood. Yet another Wiener cheering for the Italian squad.

I was visiting Italy in 1990, when the Cup was being played there, and was just swept up in the fever. I was staying right by one of the main intersections in Milano, but be damned if I recall which one. During a lull in the semi-final game I looked off the balcony.

Nobody out there. At all. I stood out there for a couple minutes, glancing back to the TV, and saw not one car. Not one pedestrian. Amazing, equally so the party a few nights later over the third place finish. Sadly, I arrived too late to catch a game.

I fully plan to stay away from Toronto for about three weeks should they win it all.

I don't know if I have a favorite, the whole thing's been kickass, but going by what I've seen...

1) Germany - Never thought I'd say this, but they are the Brock lesnar of the world cup

2) Korea - Wouldn't it be something if they won? That sea of red in the stands, blew me away.

3) Japan - Local faves and cute playas.

and...

4) Camaroon or Nigeria - When my heritage pulls an upset, it just makes you feel so ALIVE!

There you go, they're not necessarily my favorites, but they are the ones I watch closely. If this week was a sign, this could be the best Cup of all time!!

I'm Ukrainian in background, so is it wrong for me to cheer for Russia considering all the genocide that Stalin laid down on us in the 1930's?

Oh well...go England.

I'm almost all French, with ashred of Irish. I'm pulling for Ireland more though, because they got that whole "we be Irish and we OWN YOU, INFERIOR TEAM!" mentality going on, plus the fact they're an exciting team.

The Sea of Red is inane to say the least....and we all know how a hot crowd can pump you up for a game. I'm pulling for Korea as well.

Since I'm an American, team USA is my top team.

Since my mom's family is from Mexico and I live 30 min from Mexico, they're my my second team.

My grandma's German and my cousin's Italian so I got to root for them.

I'm rooting for the African teams to scare whitey.

I'm an ignorant American with no knowledge of soccer, although I live (I guess) in a hotbed for it. I only root for one country.

Coming from the (so-called) soccer capital of the US, Columbus, Ohio, I can honestly say I didn't really give a damn about this World Cup, having really only seen MLS games. However, 25 minutes of US-Portugal and I'm hooked, plus, since I work 11pm-7am and tend to live those weird hours, they're on at a perfect time for me. I'm contemplating rolling down to Crew Stadium for their viewing party tonight at 2:25 am (they're doing this for every game, not just U.S., it's ridiculous how many people go to these things too). Anyway, there was 2,000+ people for U.S-Portugal, people jumping on the bandwagon (me) should increase that number, could be a hell of a fun time, unless, of course, we lose.

As for who I'm rooting for, of course America, but if they can't pull it off, and I'd almost feel bad if they do. I mean this is one sport we NEVER win, oh hell, who am I kidding. We should win them all! Anyway, I'd probably root for Cameroon, only other team I ever was on the ol' FIFA games.

1st Week of '06, when MNF had a double-header, the 2nd game was Jaws, Brad Nessler, and Dick Vermeil, and it was awesome. As much as I like Kornheiser, I hope he doesn't bring Jaworski down.
