Just Dance With Lady Gaga, Celebrate 13 Years Of Parade Of Flesh And Reach For The Sun At The Polyphonic Spree’s 15th Annual Holiday Extravaganza.

World Cup fever is already on board. Football, or as we call it here in America, soccer, will be the center of attention next summer. Maybe it won’t be here in the U.S. thanks in part to a Dallasite.

Finally, after the three-year qualification period, the 2018 Russia FIFA World Cup groups were announced on Friday. For those who do not know, the World Cup is held every four years.  Soccer fans, have to wait patiently and it’s worth it at the end as we get the chance to see the best 32 nations compete over a two-month period of non stop soccer.

The U.S. will have to watch the World Cup at home but fans should still enjoy a great fixture of games.

Russia will kick start the tournament as they open against Saudi Arabia on June 14.  The U.S. should cheer for its region rival, Mexico, who are placed in the group of death. Here’s the complete list of the fixture.

Anyway, we’re all probably really stoked for it to be next summer already, but there’s still some waiting to do. So, for now, check out how you can kill some time this week below.
