Morocco vs Portugal

I’m starting to fall behind with these posts. Last Wednesday Portugal won through a solitary Ronaldo goal. I was there, and I have photos prove it.

Poland vs Senegal

Another unexpected result: Senegal beat Poland 2-1. There were by far more Polish fans than Senegalese but that didn’t help…

Mexico vs Germany

In the most important match of my trip, México faced off against tournament favorite and defending world champion Germany.

As usual, Mexican fans outnumbered rival fans 3 to 1. But nobody predicted the World Cup history we were about to witness.

Excellent game played by the Tri. I’m so glad I was there.

Argentina vs Iceland

We arrived late last night to our hotel in Moscow after a lot of traveling. Had to get some rest before tomorrow’s warm up game (for me).

Today we got to see Iceland earn their first ever World Cup point and Leo Messi miss a penalty kick at the Spartak Stadium. Good match.

Ruskipolla 2018

To the excitement of millions of soccer-loving The MKX® readers out there, I want to formally announce:

Ruskipolla 2018

Ruskipolla 2018

The best World Cup pool / game ever anywhere!

This follows a long tradition of awesome “quinielas” started all the way back in 2006.

The system is 100% custom and written from scratch by me, with a bit of help from a few others. It’s all for fun and for my friends and friends of friends. I really think it makes the tournament more fun for everyone involved.

It all started as a bunch of furious all-nighters writing code twelve years ago. On every subsequent polla there have been many improvements. This year, I’ve added the ability to play for free through referrals. We’ll see how it works out.

To be honest, since the last Polla a couple of little kids have taken all of my free time and I wasn’t thinking of launching it. But enough people asked about it… so what the heck.

Join now and spread the word. There’s only two weeks until kickoff!

2018 Panini World Cup Sticker Album

Once again, the World Cup is coming. Russia welcomes the world in a message of peace, love, and sportsmanship <ahem>.

Nevertheless, the game must go on. The sticker collecting game, that is.

I’ve dusted off my trusty little PHP script and, just like in 2006, 2010, and 2014, set up the…
