This is why football (soccer) will never catch on in the US. Too much whining and antics.

I'm not sure about that. The style of play where you look to flop instead of go to goal as soon as you enter the penalty area is definitely irritating, but it's not keeping people away.

Soccer has a lot of other sports to compete with in terms of maintaining public interest and drawing promising young athletes and it is not very similar to any "traditional" US sport. A 90 minute game that may end 0-0 is not something the average American is used to or interested in watching. A lot of people would find Barca's most beautiful passing sequences boring unless they ended in a goal. That's slowly changing, though, because there is an ever-growing number of people who grew up with and play the game.

One of my clients sold two tickets yesterday to the opening game today for R140 ($20) each. I was too slow and missed them
They've been selling for R4000 each.

Is anybody watching the opening game right now (RSA vs MEX)? The host team is looking really good. I predict a 1:0 final

Also my guess for tomorrow's game, ENG vs USA - 1:2 (1:1)

EDIT: Not 10 minutes later, RSA scored the first goal of the tournament and it was a beauty!!
