The 2010 FIFA World Cup starts Friday, June 11, and the Independent Weekly and its sports coverage department, Triangle Offense, is girding for battle. With the co-sponsorship of Eurosport and the Carolina RailHawks professional soccer team, the Indy is presenting a series of films and other events called "Indy Kicks & Flicks."

*Tonight at The Pinhook in Durham, the kickoff event begins at 8 p.m. We'll be showing PELADA, the fine new documentary from the quartet of ex-soccer players-turned-filmmakers Gwendolyn Oxenham, Luke Boughen, Rebekah Fergusson and Ryan White. Pelada is Brazilian slang for "pickup soccer game" and these filmmakers traveled the world looking for games to join. It's quite an extraordinary experience and one that's a perfect match for the world's greatest—and only truly global—sporting contest. The screening is free, and Rebekah Fergusson will be in attendance, along with members of the RailHawks (who snatched a sensational draw from the jaws of defeat last night, by the way).

Also: Our little corner of ESPN is open for business: You are invited—no, you are challenged—to join the Indy Kicks & Flicks (&Picks) bracket predictor game. We have prizes, too, courtesy of Eurosport and its contribution of gift certificates.

Join the Indy Kicks & Flicks (& Picks) bracket challenge!

[Indy employees and freelancers may play, but may not claim prizes.)
