Oy, I don’t know how I’ll work on my book and yet slip in the World Cup games, as there are three today! (Don’t expect anything substantive on this website.)
The start times given below are Chicago times, two hours earlier than Brazil time. But if you’re watching the games, you’ll already know this. If I could watch one, and I hope to, it would be Spain versus Netherlands.
If you want to watch legally and for free, Univision is televising the games, but only the first 56 games (two rounds, I think); you can watch them here. After that you’re on your own, though if you’ve paid for ESPN, they’re live-streaming all of the 64 games here.
Meanwhile, Google has yet another animated World Cup doodle; perhaps they’ll have a new one every day. Click on it to see the animation:
