I did! I got up at a quarter past 7 to see my beloved Super Eagles lose :mad:

After that I watched the other 3 matches. This means 4 in a row. Very nice :D

Who else did this? I expect all of you of course?

I would have seen Argentina-Nigeria ...if only I could. Some of the matches are only for people who has Canal Digital. Saw Paraguay-RSA, Sweden-England and Spain-Slovenia as they were broadcastet on channels I have.

I guess that soon I wont even be able to watch my own NT as it would require a decoder.

I did..the only day I can see matches in all of it's glory is sundays, so I did do this. Got a little boring during some times, but I managed...

Only problem is that I have got an huge lack of sleep now....got home late from seeing NFL-Europe match in Amsterdam, and just some hours of sleep, which I am used to the last couple of weeks...:sleepy:
And I always wake myself up with the radio, and since I thought I would turn it off again as soon as I would wake up this morning and carry on sleeping due to this sleepyness, I had set the wakeup-volume very high and I had put the remote somewhere I couldn't reach it. :D

that sucks :(
but its the way football keeps going further and further :greed:

however here at least the government has made it law that events like the world cup and olympics must go on the 'free' channels that everyone gets :happy:

I live in Canada where the time for the matches goes from 11:30 pm to 6:30 am.

Since the World Cup started, I have not missed one match yet. Sometimes when a match gets boring for a while, I almost fall asleep, but I do it without falling asleep. 3 days in a row I did not get 1 minute of sleep. In the day even if I try, I cannot fall asleep. Maybe after 2 more days I will be able to sleep during the day.

I have seen every minute of the World Cup so far. I was up today at 6:15am to watch Argentina Vs Nigeria, and I had a 'dentist appontment' so I could get home early from school to watch France Vs Senegal.
I also bought those Eye-Trek glasses for the World Cup, and it was well worth the £500 I paid for them. It almost makes you feel you are at the match, it is so cool!
Best match so far is the Ireland Vs Cameroon match, end to end stuff, Great match!:cool: :cool:

I have watched every minute of the world cup so far. It starts from 1:30 AM till 9:30 AM here in Eastern US, but it has been really worth staying up all morning. :)

I did. I stayed awake the whole night and watched all four of the games. Although, after watching the games I was like half dead :sleepy: but I feel it was worth it. All the games (except for the England vs Germany game) were very good and exciting!!!

Since I can't see much during the normal weekdays I watched all the games too yesterday. First game and a half in bed and the rest outside in the sun. Too bad it's the only day that we had almost 8 hours of football without a break. One of the biggest pleasures (other Dutch fans should know too) was no Wim Rijsbergen giving us his analyses. :)

Like most of you guys I have not missed a World Cup match so far :) For the first time the games are on at a very good time in Australia so that's good but I also loved getting up in the middle of the night to watch previous tournaments.

During half time in the games I'll come on Xtratime to check the latest happenings ;)

Here in the US all the games are available at Ungodly hours but i am watching all of them i.e. from Midnight to 8:00 a.m and then i go to work and spend all my day at work on Coffee.....
Anyway as long as i am doing it for the beautiful game i don't mind

Damn it! I taped todays matches because I had to go to school. But the videotape was too short so I missed the last half hour of Brazil-Turkey :mad: And I also missed the first half of Italy.

you got that right (I thought there was a 'thumbs up' smily..if not there should be one ;))
he sucks!

Well, the only matches I watched was sundays (+360 non-stop soccer coverage on tv :eek: ), and saturday I saw the total Germany walkover and like the last 30 min from the Denmark match.

I don't care THAT much about it this year since Holland isn't in it, and I simply don't have the time to follow it all. :(
So, if there was a WC where Holland shouldn't be in it, this year isn't quite that bad :rolleyes:

But I do watch all the coverage which is shown in the evenings here and I will tape Argentina playing England on fridays.
Can't wait to see the Brazil coverage tonight, since I read it's quite the match with nice play from Brazil and stupid decisions...and Rivaldo :rolleyes:
