    Will you be interested in the World Cup?

    Based on learning that Miller and Deace have no intention of covering the World Cup, I'm just curious the interest of people on here. I'm not a big soccer guy, but I will definitely be tuned in for this World Cup. Can't wait.

    If you could change that to "I could not care less about soccer", I would vote.

    I can't without resetting the poll, but you know what I mean.

    Those 0-0 ties and 1-Nil wins will have me glued to my chair.

    NO!
    If I truly wanted to waste an afternoon, I'd sit out on my back deck and watch paint peel.

    I won't not watch it. If Denmark or Germany are on I'll stop and check it out...

    Re: Will you be interested in the World Cup?

    I'll be tuning in for sure. Hope we can at least give England a good game - the last World Cup opener against Czech Republic where we let them score 5' in was a real kick in the nuts.

    Re: Will you be interested in the World Cup?

    I'm so betting the over for the huge Monaco vs Portugal game. I got my bet in while it was still at 1.5.

    Go USA. But I probably won't watch even when they're playing.
