We’ll be pimping our Indy Flicks & Kicks ESPN World Cup bracket challenge for the next couple of days. We’re even giving out prizes in the form of gift certificates to Eurosport, the better for you to build your wardrobe of Arsenal and Barcelona and USA! USA! USA! soccer kits.

And there’s no excuse: You don’t have to know a direct kick from a corner kick to decide whether you like France better than, say, North Korea. Sign up right here—we’re trying to get to 40 today!

Last night’s screening of Pelada was a smashing success. At least 150 people swarmed into The Pinhook to catch a glimpse of the recently completed documentary, two of whose producers are former standout soccer players for the Duke women’s team. Two members of the Carolina RailHawks, Joseph Kabwe and Sean O’Connor, were on hand, as well.

The next event is Wednesday, June 9, at the Galaxy Cinema, where we’ll be showing Winning Isn’t Everything and Victory. Co-sponsors Eurosport and the Carolina RailHawks will be present, and filmmaker Hap Kindem and UNC women’s assistant coach Bill Palladino will answer questions about the former film, which takes a look at the extraordinary success of the UNC women’s soccer team under coach Anson Dorrance.
