Yup. And ridiculous amounts of money and technology have been put into cooling the stadiums for players and fans. Even in November.

Yeah I remember reading about all these grand plans they had to help cool the stadiums. I think I there something about an artificial rain cloud. Remember thinking why can't we do that in CA lol

I'm pretty sure one of the proposed ideas was a really big blimp-like craft that would cast a huge shadow over the stadium. I'm not sure if they're actually going to have that.

I think they said something like that isn't doable for Levi's because of the airports nearby and flight patterns.

Ground E and H are pretty interesting.

Spain, Germany, and Japan - all 3 teams are good enough to advance.

Portugal, Uruguay, Korea, and Ghana are all at least decent teams.

Still can't believe Italy didn't make it. Chile and Nigeria were also strong teams. Columbia is another team with some talent but failed.

Putting a dollar on Qatar hoping to get a superyacht. They have bribe money. Expect early red cards vs Qatar.

You are right, I remember the blimp idea

At least they still have Eat Fresh Italian Refresh starring Jimmy G with his Benissimo sub sammy.
I don't know what previous WC finals cost , but this year is $2700 right now . Compared to a SB , that's a deal .

I think people thinking it's going to be hot and an un popular travel destination will keep prices that low .

but they moved the schedule to where it will be in the 70s/80s for the final
