World Cup Open Thread, Day 5: Come On You Portuguese!

On tap today: Two cupcakes and a bar fight. The first game is a pillow fight, with New Zealand v. Slovakia (6:30am CST, ESPN), then the most competitive match of the day with Ivory Coast v. Portugal (9:00am CST, ESPN), and finally a historic beatdown with Brazil v. North Korea (1:30pm CST, ABC). I picked Portugal to advance, so all enmity toward CIV is just going to have to slide around here. Usual rules of game threads apply: no porn, no discussion of piracy; if you can't watch the game on TV, there are legal online streams at ESPN3.com. Beyond that, the topic is verboten.
