Random thoughts of a Brit living in the Imperial Valley of California

Germany 4 – Costa Rica 2

with one comment

So we’re under way at last. I watched the first half from home before going to work and thought it was a good start to the tournament. Whilst the result was never really in doubt you have to admire a team that gets very few chances but puts them away when they do. Germany was playing a very dangerous off-side and Costa Rica had a player who looked like he would score when they messed it up, which seemed to almost happen a lot. The Germans didn’t look great, I think they will have to tighten their game up if they are to make it to the finals as I have predicted.

In the meantime I am trying to find a way to watch the games online. The BBC is showing them online but you need a UK IP address to view them and so far I have not found a UK open proxy that worked. is showing the games but you have to be a cable customer of the right company to view them. Fortunately I am back in Brawley…. so this weekend I will set up an ssh server at home and see if I can tunnel in from here and watch the games that way. Failing that, the big screen in the break room here at work.
