    The Final & 3rd Place - FRA v. CRO / BEL v. ENG

    I've watched the awards ceremony up until Lloris lifted the trophy. The Croatians were gracious losers, much better than the Argentinians 4 years ago. I recall Messi couldn't wait to get off the field that day. Also, the French, while ecstatic, where not all up in their faces. Deschamps was gracious, and congratulated every Croatian player. I think he's secured his job for at least 2 more years. Oh, what will Zidane do? Anyway, I must say I've never seen heads of state more jubilant than this at a sports event. Both Macron and Croatia's Grabar-Kitarović were really into it, despite the rain. Speaking of which, was the rain Russia's warning to France not to overstay their welcome, again. (just being silly here).
  2. Age of Mythology has always been my favorite in the series. Curious to see what they intend to do with AoE4, if there will be any new mechanics, or just the same 'ol with prettier graphics. Anyway, I'm currently playing Spellforce III, which I picked up in the steam sale. It's ok. I've played the 2nd game years ago, don't recall ever playing the first one. It's one of the first games to attempt combining classic party RPGs with classic RTS games. This one has new graphics, and a cool looking world map, but otherwise I don't see much difference from its predecessor. The game was buggy at launch, back in December, so I stayed away until now.

    That was Pussy Riot? haha. American commentators always try to deflect from that stuff, so I had no idea who it was, but I thought they were Russians.

    Me neither.

    Westeros World Cup - Fantasy League

    Holy shit, that was a nice push near the end. I can't believe Griezmann didn't get the assist for the own goal, but I had him as captain, so that paid off. Thanks.

    I think you need to pay better attention to what players do besides scoring goals.

    I'm thinking Pogba will win player of the tournament.

    Lloris won't either.

    This is heartbreaking for Croatia. And Subasic won't be getting the Golden Glove now.

    France will unfairly win this.

    Cord Cutting Advice - Not the newborn type

    Well this isn't encouraging regarding YouTube TV. https://variety.com/2018/digital/news/youtube-tv-outage-one-week-credit-world-cup-1202872304/ The World Cup is coming to a close, and I'm thinking it's time to put an end to my cable subscription. At this point, I may just cut the cord, and not sign up for any live tv streaming service, since it's summer anyway. Edit: yeah, YouTube TV is out for me; based on this article which compares all, it probably isn't available where I live, and it's not supported on Amazon Fire TV.

    More Things Star Wars

    That was a theory that went around the web after TFA, but imo, I don't know how that could have been. Kylo Ren never actually recognizes Rey in the film, he's just puzzled by her. And if he had done that, even with the number of years that passed by, there would have probably been a force familiarity (kinda how like Vader senses Obi Wan). But not only did Johnson go in a different direction, the flashback with the confrontation between Luke and Ben imply that there hadn't been that many years since it happened.

    I'm curious which keeper will receive the Golden Glove. Pickford, apparently, asked Southgate not to bench for this game, because he wanted to be contention, but despite some good saves, he let two in. Still, Pickford did distinguish himself at this tournament, and it was a great decision by Southgate to have him in goal, and certainly not bring in Joe Hart. That being said, Courtois matched, or maybe overcame, Ochoa's number of saves at the tournament, so he is ahead at least in terms of numbers of saves and minutes played. He's also been tremendous in getting his team going on counter-attacks. Lloris played well, and France hasn't, so far, conceded many goals, but he also hasn't had that many saves, I don't think. Right now, my money is on Subasic, (Courtois a close 2nd) though he didn't play in the 3rd group match. But he kept clean sheets in the other 2 group matches, and Croatia didn't concede, so far, too many goals in the knockout stages. He also had 3 penalty saves in the shootout with Denmark, and one in the shootout with Russia.
