Halftime Update: England 1 - Paraguay 0

So...the last 30 minutes of soccer was far less exciting that the first 15. England scored on the own goal and had several good shots in the half. Beckham has looked very sharp with his kicks, passes, and possession. Good for him. He needs to have a quality Cup after some very disappointing competitions in the past. England has dominated the half and has a significant lead in awkward 6'7" forwards. Peter Crouch surely doesn't look like a world class athlete.

One thing to note...the shadows at the stadium are crazy. The shadow looks like a 100-legged spider. See left for the cause of this awkward shadow. I'm sure it's not optimal for the play. It reminds of a reverse of the Dallas Cowboys stadium shadow.
