World Cup semi finals set

World Cup semi-fnals are set and there is NO Germany (knocked out in first round), NO Brazil (defeated in quarters yesterday), NO Argentina (lost in round of 16)…  Instead, you have an all-European affair with Belgium, Croatia, England and France.

Tuesday, July 10: Semi-Final 1

  • Belgium faces France – France is a slight favorite

Wednesday, July 11: Semi-Final 2

  • Croatia faces England – England is the favorite

Why wouldn’t England be the big favorite they are against an undefeated Croatian team?  England surprised everyone by defeating Colombia in the round of 16 on penalty kicks.  England typically does not win on penalty kicks.

How did the four teams get here?

  1. France defeated Uruguay 2-1 yesterday
  2. Belgium got by Brazil 2-1 yesterday.
  3. England beat Sweden 2-0 this morning
  4. Croatia just beat host Russia 4-3 on penalty kicks after being locked on 1-1 in regular and 2-2 in extra time.

Will we see an England – Belgium rematch of the 3rd group-stage match in the finals OR will we see old-school England vs France, or will it be one or two upsets? For the record, I had England because the USA did not make the world cup and, despite up against some great teams, I will still go with England to win. Madness? We will see.

Who will left World Cup 2018 trophy?

Congratulations to the West Indies. Is this the start of something good or just a fluke? Stay tuned.

Five murdered in mass shooting in Annapolis, Maryland,USA

Five (5) journalists were brutally murdered and others injured in apparent targeted mass shooting at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland, USA. The alleged shooter was taken into custody by the police.

One of the dead had ties to South Florida.

This is total and utter madness. People who commit these and acts have to be insane or being lead by alternate or virtual reality. A sane person with compassion would not commit such terrible and senseless acts.

We pray for the families, coworkers, and friends of the victims.

Will the US politicians just talk and play politics or will they put themselves in the shoes of the loved ones of of the deceased, come up with a plan and act? Even one life saved is precious.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? – Jeremiah 17:9

For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornication and murders. – Mark 7:21

A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings evil things. – Matthew 12:35

Sri Lanka draws test series 1-1 vs West Indies

The West Indies lost a low scoring 3rd test by 4 wickets in the Caribbean to Sri Lanka. In the process, Sri Lanka pulled out an improbable 1-1 series draw.

The WIndies did themselves no favors in the batting arena, scoring a paltry 93 runs in 2nd innings, giving Sri Lanka 144 to win. Sri Lanka lost quick wickets but held on to win by 4 wickets.

I am not sure how to grade this series performance.

What say you, cricket fans?
