Here It Comes...

With the opening ceremonies only days away, it seems almost assured that this tournament will be an event to remember for a long time. This tournament promises to be bigger, better, and more exciting than any previous soccer event in Saskatchewan.

A couple quick notes:

-As you can probably tell, a few minor adjustments have been made to the blog to make it look a little better.

-You'll be able to check in with us every game day to see a recap of the previous day's events. Since I won't see every single game, please feel free to e-mail with a recap of a game that is missed on this site. Also, any women players are welcome to help out with the women's side if they want to write quick game recaps.

-Tell your friends to come out and support a team. Give this tournament as much exposure as you can. Let's pack that place.

-The polls will be modified after the tournament starts.

-If your team doesn't have a website, make one, then send me the link. It takes very little time but gives your team much more exposure. It lets people know who everyone is and adds a little celebrity status for the players. It is very much worth the effort.

-We all owe Kevin Holness and company much appreciation for all he's done to put this tournament together once again. They put in a lot of time and effort into making this thing run smoothly. They've done an outstanding job so far, and this tournament is only getting better and better.

A message from CBC:

We would like to get things started by having players call us and leave a message for us to play on the radio.

Call 1-800-661-7540, and under the morning edition, say - what team you play for in the WCP Cup and why you're going to win. Thanks.

Support your country, have a great time, and let's see some top quality soccer!

Say it under the morning edition.

Am I correct in understanding Al Ligator is volunteering to help with the WCP site. Still, you think he might be prepared to kick in a little more than 2 hours. Just think of how good the site could be if he put in the extra effort.

He should help out. First the site was supposed to be done by the 9th, then the 13th, then the 16th, and they've all come and gone without any updates.

Hell, just let Clock Cleaner do it. Let anyone do it. Although maybe they're making it super awesome as we speak. Pictures of teams, rosters, skill ratings, fantasy teams and fantasy pools.

I just wet myself with excitement over how awesome that would be.

Interesting, the closer we get to the World Cup, the less talking there is. Is everyone too nervous to speak? Where are all those Laos bashers and Norway haters? Perhaps we should have another debate on minority rights? Hahahaha!

My guess is this will be better than the previous years with the possible exception of no day standing out as having a great set of games. Most days seems to have 1 really good game but that is it.

I bet Northern Ireland and their messiah boy got their ass whooped by the Ragge Boyz!

bullshit. they got lucky. I like to see them get a result against Ukraine and maybe I'll stop being a Naysayer.

As well as they did play late night, I do think that they will be in a tougher game against ukraine today, but i do think they deserve a bit more respect. Even if the did get "lucky", they played hard and tied a team that i bet everyone thought would steamroll them 10-0. That being said, i do think ukraine will beat them easily but it will be a dogfight for 2nd in the pool.

Ukraine 2 - Northern Ireland 2.....Final Score

yeah right. I am still skeptical about these NI boys. They maybe punching above their weight. But the cream will rise to the top and I doubt they'll be there. I still call Jam and Ukr.

its not over till the fat lady sings, oh sorry till the ukraine keeper sings!

i guess they are just gonna keep on getting lucky as the tourney goes. NI is not the best team but they have gotten better, and can only keep doing so. not this year but maybe next year they may get out of their pool!
