See, I get the double. I can go USA and Italy. I am an American with Italian heritage, so, considering I do not have an intense passion for the sport, to have fun I cheer for both. I was in France when Italy won. Had run out of the bar, scratched that, was chased out of the bar when I cheered when Italy won.

Right now, SA is 9 hours ahead of PDT and 6 hours ahead of EDT. SA does not observe Daylight Saving Time.

Oh, and GO USA !!! Also rooting for Korea and Germany.

I'm rooting for Italy! My mother and all my grandparents were born there so it's a big thing in my family. They aren't looking as good as in '06 so if somehow USA is still in it and Italy knocked out I'm rooting for them.

I watch the English premier league. Go USA! But i like watching lots of other teams play as they have amazing talent including Spain, Argentina, England, etc. Brazil is not as impressive as recent past but it's like an "unimpressive" US basketball team it's still got a pretty good shot.

I went to a few of the games in 2006 (Germany) but I don't think I'll go as far as South Africa this time.
Anyways, I'm cheering for France!!!
