World Cup Weekend Open Thread (June 13-15)

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The World Cup goes full steam ahead this weekend, with 10 games over the next 3 days. This is your open thread.

Greetings, football fans! No, not that football. The round ball football that we call soccer. The 2014 FIFA World Cup got off to a pretty exciting start yesterday, with Brazil coming back from an early 1-0 deficit to take care of business and earn 3 points against Croatia - thanks to some dubious refereeing as well. We're done with having just 1 game per day, though, as things pick up with 3 games each on Friday and Sunday and 4 games on Saturday. This is your place to talk about all of the happenings.
