    Pod-Emperor Acknowledged At Last

    We have now escaped the 4th dimension and things have gotten even stranger.
  2. Its not the first time a referee has messed up the handball rule in this tournament. Maybe VAR makes it look deliberate but still very poor refereeing. Very unlucky Croatia.

    Round of 16: : LET THE (Knockout) GAMES BEGIN!

    Yes. Poor performance from Spain. You need to be able to do more with the ball.

    Round of 16: : LET THE (Knockout) GAMES BEGIN!

    And it will be a very hard game to call between France and Uruguay in the quarters. France is going to face a very different challenge, while Uruguay can be Uruguay. It was also interesting that Portugal had so rarely played Uruguay before. Argentina had beaten France a couple times in the World Cup but last time in 1978. While today, Spain should beat Russia. Russia should be the perfect opposition for them. And Croatia should be able to knock out Denmark. Too many good players.

    Yes. Great goal. Which helped ensure a surprisingly decent game. Portugal don't look like scoring.

    Round of 16: : LET THE (Knockout) GAMES BEGIN!

    Hmm. If ever a game looked less likely to have 7 goals, it is Uruguay v Portugal. But congrats to France. I thought they were going to blow it there for a minute. It will be interesting to see if another generation of Argentinians can come through now. They have way too many 30 somethings in that current squad. France always had more options today but Argentina were their ideal opponents, as they allowed them a lot more room. Whoever wins the later match, will give them a very different test. Probably Uruguay though. Edited to add. Higuain didn't look good when he played but Aguero's absence was weird.

    France look like the better team but threw away the impetus when they went ahead. Now we'll see they can bounce back from that blow. Argentina have shown resilience but haven't created much except for that wonder goal.

    World Cup 2018: Celebratin' Your Nation.

    I'm late to the party but it is difficult not to celebrate the amazing Mexican team. Great win over our predecessors as World Cup champions and a good win over South Korea. Every team has one bad game, so i'm glad that is out of the way too. I'm excited to see how many goals we'll win the next game by.

    The Lodestar Award

    After all these years, we finally have a Young Adult award at Worldcon. I know a number of people on this board have spent a lot of time on this especially LugaJetboyGirlirra. It got ratified today with a provisional name of Lodenstar, with the name to be ratified in San Jose. But there will be an award next year. I'd name some of the others on the committee but I am bound to miss a few. Congrats to those involved, those who helped and those who voted. Somebody else who knows more about this can give further details about all the work done. I do like the idea of a Lodey award...
  11. Great note. You could link to GRRM's appearance page to give people an idea about where GRRM (and thus probably the BwB) will be in the coming months and years? www.georgerrmartin.com/appearances/
