Below is the entire World Cup group rounds schedule, with times posted in Eastern time and the appropriate US TV station.

Since I know that there are many PA readers in the UK and Australia, here's how to translate:
EDT is UTC-4
British Summer Time is UTC+1
Australian EST is UTC+10

So for each common start time:
7:30 AM EDT = 12:30 PM BST = 9:30 PM AEST
10:00 AM EDT = 3:00 PM BST = 12:00 AM AEST (+1 day)
2:30 PM EDT = 7:30 PM BST = 4:30 AM AEST (+1 day)

    It's that way for all the games. It's so one set of teams doesn't have an advantage over the other.

    "USA fans may hate the Mexican national team and Mexican fans, but the hatred doesn't really go both ways. I've met so many Mexico fans who say they are rooting for the United States as their second team. Many of them live in the United States, but even some Mexicans from Mexico go out of their way to root for the USA. Whether it's because more USA success makes the losses by Mexico to the USA more easy to explain, or whether it's respect, I've been impressed. I won't tell USA fans to return the favor because I know the emotions run deep, but it's something to think about."

    Found your problem brah.

    I totally didn't notice that till now. I guess I'll have to have one game on the tv and the other on the computer. The sound of dual vuvuzuela's may cause my brain to liquify though.

    Anelka gave Domenech some grief at half time during the Mexico game and was sent home.
    On Sunday the French squad refused to train (because Anelka was sent home without consulting the squad) and the French captain, Patrice Evra, had a go at the French fitness coach and had to be physically restrained from going after him, there are some videos on youtube. :) The fitness coach then threw his id away as he stormed away from Evra, presumably to keep Evra from killing him, and has left the French camp (as far as I know).

    Domenech has since released a statement, from the players, that they are ready to get on with the tournament.


    That's the gist of what's going on anyway.

    Hand ball IN THE BOX that led to a goal that put Ireland out of the world cup. I think Thierry Henry basically stole my ticket to the world cup. What's worse Ireland had completely outplayed France in that game.

    It still hurts.

    Also Mexico and Uruguay are gunna tie and South Africa is going to pull a last minute winner and it'll be so sad.
