Open World Cup Thread, June 28th 2010

Netherlands - Slovakia, 7:00 AM PDT/10:00 AM EDT/15:00 GMT

Brazil - Chile, 11:30 AM PDT/2:30 PM EDT/ 19:30 GMT

Despite the fact that the Netherlands are my favorite team left in the tournament, I would not at all mind Slovakia pulling off the upset here. It should go without saying that I desperately want Chile to pull off the upset here.

My real emotional investment in the tournament is gone; it's all about hoping for the best possible soccer and the best possible stories. And in a way, that's a lot of fun. A different kind of fun, but still fun.
