Sacre bleu! That 2nd Croatia goal.  France goalie brain cramp.

I didn't notice until now.  It's pouring over there.

Got to like the female President of Croatia.   The only one to stand in the rain and congratulate the players while all the male dignitaries had umbrellas.

Fox is going to have lots of fun with the 2022 World Cup.  November 21-December 18 in Qatar.  It's going up against the heart of the NFL and CFB season, plus the start of the NBA season.  Yikes

We're already planning on going. Totally missed not being in the action this year and Qatar, I think, will be an awesome experience

Shouldn't be too bad since Qatar is in the same time zone as Moscow and most of the games will already be over before the football games begin.

Glad to see Pogba get the winner.

Ya know, one of the things I like most about all the World Cup games, and soccer games in general, when they say the match starts at 8am, it actually starts at 8am; not 8:01, not 8:05, not 8:20. No dinkin' around with mindless commentary and more commercials.

Video review was a good addition to the World Cup.  One change I would like to see going forward, is increased number of substitutions.  At least up to six.

That was a great final. I'm a bit annoyed at the whining about the penalty kick. Absolutely the right call. Exciting game, though.

Agreed. I like the video review. They're quick with it, and sometimes it's very worth the extra time.

No cutting away for commercials either.  It's one of the only instances FIFA gets right, that the NFL does not.

Next big event in "futbol" is...

The 2018 NCAA Championship, hosted by UC Santa Barbara.  :D The College Cup returns to SB for the second time in program history.  We host in 2020 as well.
