Its almost that time.  Four months-ish, give or take.  Any of you guys gonna be planning to attend the world cup in any of these off-the-beaten-path cities?  I was honestly pretty keen on it until the whole "USA losing to Trinidad and Tobago when they only needed a tie to advance"......thing.  Anyone thinking of attempting it as a proposed date/travel arrangement with a hopeful future spouse?  I think that could be a pretty fun thing to do.  Crossed anyones mind?

Many hotels booked up - I think by speculators ..

Don't know if I'll go to any games - as my country JUST - didn't qualify - thanks to a Romanian Ref giving a penalty that wasn't - he later apologised

We live in one of the host cities - Sochi

Good luck

Did you get residency in Russia then?
- or perhaps using rather more flexible definitions of common terms than most people?

It’s all part of the fantasy.
