and in its usual awesomeness, the Alamo Drafthouse is showing a bunch of games at Lake Creek and at least the US/England game at the South Lamar location. Tim League (the founder) recently took over as CEO of the Drafthouse, which means cooler events and preshow stuff at Lake Creek, like this!
A comprehensive calendar of World Cup games, organized by team, group, stadium, and date.
A neat visualization of which countries are most successful in the World Cup (hint: Brazil, Germany, Italy)
Personally I'm rooting for the US and Italy, but I picked Argentina to win it all, and I'm just happy to watch some good soccer!
Comment from gerdemb:
What I think is interesting, is that every World Cup final match has involved one of only four countries: Brazil, Argentina, Germany or Italy! Considering the 80 year history of the tournament and the fact that any country in the world is eligible I think this pretty amazing...
