Yesterday (the weekend) in one sentence: The quarterfinal round was, sadly, as predictable as the last 16, but there's a chance teams might play more openly in this round. What's on tap: Brazil vs. Germany, 4 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see: These two world superpowers are quite familiar with each other, with Brazil winning the last three competitive matches, including the 2002 final in South Korea and Japan. More was on the line in that match, but this one might feel bigger in front of the home crowd for Brazil.

Yesterday in one sentence : The gaps in the World Cup schedule, as a very smart person pointed out to me, need to be filled with something, even if it's MLS games. It was too weird without soccer this week, and now there are more days without it than with it until the end of the World Cup. What's on tap : France vs. Germany, noon, ESPN2; Brazil vs. Colombia, 4 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see : Sure, the United States has been eliminated for days, but seeing these matchups should only make everyone, even on this most patriotic day of days, understand why the United States is out and these teams are in. France and Germany have been the class of the European teams so far, while Brazil and Colombia (with respect to Argentina, which hasn't looked great)

The political jolt being applied to Brazil's fragile democracy is worse than if John F. Kennedy had been hauled before our House Judiciary Committee accused of taking bribes.A popular, reformist young president in Brazil faces formal condemnation by a congressional panel tomorrow. Even if he staves off the impeachment that is likely to follow, Fernando Collor de Mello is already a political cripple, unable to push through his ambitious plans to pull Brazil out of its economic morass. If he is forced from office, there is no Lyndon Johnson in the Brazilian vice presidency to carry out a fallen president's program.

It takes courage to do what Francisco Collor de Mello has done. He is the young playboy governor who won the presidential election in Brazil last December on a promise to free the market and keep out his leftist-unionist opponent. As the second civilian and first freely elected president after a long period of military dictatorship, he was bound to find skeletons. He found nuclear ones, specifically a 15-year-old military program to develop nuclear weapons outside of domestic or international surveillance.

Marcelo Salles' food truck is getting a little more attention now that all eyes are on the World Cup games. But despite the fact that Brazilian culture is in the spotlight, Salles is not convinced that Baltimoreans are ready to embrace what is standard fare in his home country: chicken hearts. So his truck, called Darua, instead serves other classic Brazilian dishes like feijoada , a hearty stew of black beans and meats, and pastel , fried dough pockets with sweet and savory fillings.

Yesterday in one sentence: They were draws in the scorebook, but Mexico beat Brazil, 0-0, and South Korea beat Russia, 1-1. What's on tap: Australia vs Netherlands, noon, ESPN; Spain vs. Chile, 3 p.m.; ESPN; Cameroon vs. Croatia, 6 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see: I said yesterday would decide Group A, and it did in the sense that Brazil decided they didn't terribly want to take control of the group. The goalless draw with Mexico leaves both teams on four points, and a draw today in the Croatia-Cameroon game leaves the juicy possibility that all four teams could finish on four points and create the kind of silly chaos only the World Cup can provide.

Derek Woodward can remember how local sports fans reacted to the 1994 World Cup, the first and only time the quadrennial soccer event was held in the United States. Despite games being played as nearby as Washington's RFK Stadium, few casual fans knew what was going on. But Woodward, a teacher and girls soccer coach at Kenwood High in Baltimore County, has seen local interest in the World Cup grow dramatically over the past 20 years. When Woodward organized a watch party at the Gunpowder Lodge in Perry Hall for the U.S. team's tournament opener in 2010, nearly 500 people showed up.
