2014 World Cup: Daily notes and open thread for June 19

Let's talk about the cup of the world.

Richard Heathcote

For the second day in a row, the games get progressively worse as they go on. Who schedules this stuff? What's wrong with you?

The games

Colombia vs. Ivory Coast - 12 p.m. ET, 5 p.m. UK: Now that Didier Drogba doesn't play for Chelsea, I absolutely adore him.

England vs. Uruguay - 3 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. UK: Chances are, they won't both completely embarrass themselves.

Japan vs. Greece - 6 p.m. ET, 11 p.m. UK: Crap + an insane goal by Honda.

Any Spurs players involved?

Nope. Womp womp.

How about former Spurs?

My dude Didier Zokora.

Any transfer targets or rival players I'm probably interested in?

We're linked to Wilfried Bony, for some reason. Swansea paid £12m for him last summer, so they'll want to make a significant profit. Buying him would be dumb. I really can't imagine that we'd buy anyone who's playing in today's games, actually.

As for rivals, Luis Suarez and the whole England team, but I'm sure a lot of you are pretending to like England players today.

What cool things has SB Nation posted today?

Glad you asked!
