After the amazing X-Men First Class when they announced a second film with the First Class cast I was very extremely happy. When we found out that the original cast was joining the cast of First Class I was somewhat worried.
Did the film work or did it turn into another Wolverine movie?

France. I love the French team, I don’t know why I kind of support them at times and again I don’t know why! Though I can’t help but want to see Honduras do well. So my third live blog and first of two tonight!

Day Three saw one of the most anticipated games of the first round, England v Italy. We also had a shocking result (apparently as I have no idea how good Uruguay or Costa Rica are!)
So how did the tables work out?

So my second live blog of the tournament. We have ITV’s underdog England v Andrea Pirlo (or Italy… But mainly Pirlo.)
I don’t have to pick sides as I do love Italy, so yes the blog will be Italy biased.
This is actually the first match I’m looking forward to in the first round of matches. Mainly because I love Italy (the only other team I love as much is Germany) and because it gives me a real excuse for being up late tomorrow!
So yes… Lets go Italy!!!

So I didn’t get a chance to watch the big games yesterday (Spain v Netherlands would have been the one I would have live blogged but I ended up doing something whilst watching the game!) but I should be live blogging the only game that matters today (England v Italy).
But before that we need a round up!
It also includes the one game we’ve had so far today so don’t look further if you haven’t seen it!

So the opening game of the World Cup see’s host nation and footballing giants Brazil against Croatia.
For this game I will be taking on the role of Brazil supporter, I’d love to see the home nation do well in the first game.
So we were off to Sao Paolo!
And of course don’t read on if you don’t want to know results…. Please don’t make me write that at the beginning of any blog I do!

I will be attempting to write blogs on the World Cup during the whole tournament, obviously I can’t see every game and I won’t even be able to see all the games I probably could see but I’ll try and have a blog up to highlight what is happening in each group and to track the GeekMind teams picks for the cup!
I say picks I mean mainly the teams we all support.
These teams….. Amazingly aren’t England! Seeing three quarters of us are English! The teams we are following will be Italy, Australia, Germany and the United States. We’ll obviously keep a close eye on all the big name teams as well and the host nation Brazil.
I’m writing this blog just before the first match (Brazil v Croatia) mainly for a friendly warning.
Yes sports are competitive and we like a bit of banter but we are not going to allow anyone to start flaming fans of other teams. Be proud of your nation and never laugh or scoff at the attempt of any team. Whether you like their team or not unless there is some big controversy we just want this to be a fun look at the first World Cup the forum and blog have been.
We just want a nice and friendly atmosphere on the blog in general and if you are getting involved we’d love to know your team and whether there is a reason you support them.
I will be blogging about Brazil v Croatia, I believe Anna might be blogging about England v Italy on Saturday (if not then I will be) I might even be awake early enough to see Australia v Chile tomorrow! The games are nice and late but maybe not nice if you have to get up early in the morning!
So yes! Less then half an hour to go!!
