My resources may not be complete, but this is what I get in a search for "World Cup" in Logos4.

 

If I search in Spanish "Copa Mundial", I get 4 more hits!

 

...but it won't tell me which team will win in 2010...Hmm

... a blow for Germany! They will still qualify but perhaps a dampener on those who got over-excited after the first game.

Argentina? Good game but shaky in D. One also wonders how they would do against a more solidly organized team than South Korea was.

France... yuck!

USA tied Slovinia in 2nd half after scoring 2 goals.   Interesting.

When I was in Grand Rapids I would see a number of trucks from the Holland Motor Express with a picture of a Dutchman on the side with foot extended (wearing klompen).   The motto was "You just can't beat the Big Dutch Fleet."  Due to perspective the foot was exceedingly large so I changed it to "You just can't beat the Big Dutch Feet."  So, good luck to the big Dutch feet.  I don't know why I say that since I can't stand soccer ever since I played it for one week in physical education and almost got killed though I played football on both sides of the ball in every game and never got a scratch.  Don't take my remark as disparaging the Dutch.  They're good people.

Just what is happening? England can't get a win when it should (and may not qualify), Germany look hapless. Spain, France, Italy ...

England just seem to under perform in all world cups.  This year's effort is really surprising me.  I expected more of them.  Group C is still pretty wide open.  Even Algeria could advance!

 

Germany were not bad.  But being a man down made it that much harder.  And that ref was atrocious.  Germany will still advance.  And I think they could still win it.  I have had my eye on them and the Dutch.  And as always, I root for the Yanks!

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

If we get March Madness, where is our World Cup Insanity discount program?

If you like soccer then you're already mad so there is no discount.

the success of the Seattle Sounders MLS team not-with-standing, soccer has apparently not made it as far as Bellingham . . .

Come on ... it's the only professional sports event I've attended voluntarily. The others were all take-a-foster-son events. Oops, I may not be a counter-example.

I saw one upset fan on the TV News saying something like:

"We've all spent thousands of Pounds to be here ... @#$%# ... Team ... %###$ ... waste of money ... %$$$#$! useless ..." and it went on like that for a while.

I was thinking how nice it was to be able to enjoy watching sports at times, yet not really care about the outcomes.

Wonders if Athletes In Action has come up with a full blown theology of sport (sporteology)? Perhaps the Word Cup gives expression to the mandate to rule over the earth?

The Complete Book of Everyday Christianity (Robert Banks and R. Paul Stevens) has a whole article on (the theology and spirituality of) sports (pp. 953-961). Unfortunately it's not available in Logos format, but you can read almost the entire article (minus one page) on the preview at said site which I linked to if you search for sports and start with the hit at p. 953.

I like that!  Of course, then I have to start messing with it: Logos Cup, World Logos Cup, Logos World Cup

Looking compromised though still possible for the Ivory Coast. Numerous commentaries are available on the French team situation (though not in Logos of course). The consensus interpretation held by most scholars is that unable to produce entertainment on the pitch, they decided to produce off the field.
