Kicking and Screaming

Let’s face it: This past month’s nonstop soccer marathon has made us all World Cup junkies, and soon we’ll be kicking, sweating, screaming, and grinding our teeth through a nasty, weeklong bout of withdrawal. We are dangerously addicted, and the supply is drying up.

With Sunday's Final pitting the Netherlands against Spain, there will be a new country's name joining the seven already engraved on the bottom of the FIFA World Cup Trophy. While this year's edition of the quadrennial tournament is the 19th, there are only eight nations who have won soccer's biggest prize, counting this year's champion. Both the Dutch and the Spanish like to dominate possession and press the attack, which should make for an open and exciting final. The match kicks off at 2:30 p.m.

Get your very last fix this Sunday at 2:30 p.m. when the Colony Theatre fills with raging football fanatics for a cinema-style screening of the World Cup Final. Show up buzzing from a pregame round of martinis at Segafredo L’Originale or a noontime beer binge at Zeke’s Roadhouse. There are only 90 minutes of high drama left. You can twitch and pray in the hopes of extra time and a shootout, but the next day, the vuvuzelas will be silent.
