Thursday on TV: At long last, World Cup begins in Brazil
The 2014 World Cup gets under way today as the host country, Brazil faces Croatia (2 p.m., ESPN).
I have nothing against the Brazilian national team, but wouldn't it be fun if the first game was a huge upset and Croatia wins? (That is NOT a prediction, by the way.)
