The World Cup saga continues with the much-anticipated game of Mexico v. South Korea this Saturday.

After Mexico’s win last week against Germany, it doesn’t look like South Korea stands much of a chance, but fans of both teams will undoubtedly be watching on the edges of their seats. And the celebrations (or mournings) afterward might be even more epic.

After Mexico scored a goal against Germany last week, seismic sensors in Mexico City detected a small tremor, induced not by an earthquake, but by raucous celebration (seriously!).

In quieter news, this week the L.A. Times highlighted a small Pasadena-based dry cleaners which has a tradition of putting up a TV every four years, so that its surrounding community can gather to watch the games.

We want to hear about how you’ll be watching and celebrating. What’s the craziest situation in which you’ve watched the World Cup? What kooky or touching traditions make your viewing and celebrating experience unique? How will you be watching the game this Saturday?
