One look at Ronaldo, Donovan, Kaká, or Drogba, and it’s easy to see why you should follow soccer. (If you don’t get it, do some Google image searches immediately.)
Hot guys aside, soccer is the most popular sport on Earth (except here, for some puzzling reason), and the World Cup starts June 11, meaning the sports bars will be filled with people shouting “Ole!” To help you understand that, and other soccer-specific things, we asked three fútbol nerd friends to give us a quick but comprehensive overview (emphasis on quick).
If this whets your appetite, visit FIFA’s website for player interviews, game schedules, and news. You’ll be saying things like “Maradona should’ve kept Zanetti on the roster” in no time.

Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett), and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
When in Rome opens this Friday. Check local listings for showtimes.
