bdiddy states, or more accurately whines, "'GREAT.....a whole month of watching a bunch of crybabies fall to the ground and whine to the refs. I think I'll just grab some bamboo shoots and ram them up my fingernails...much more gratifying.'"

You have freedom of choice: don't watch it then. Get over it!!

eddie brown states, "'Does anyone else find it ironic that no one in America gave 2 shits about soccer a few months ago.'"

Speak for yourself. I know NUMEROUS people that pay attention to futbol all year long, and not just here in the USA. better than moronic footbrawl watching a bunch of guys in tight pants slapping each other in the ass!!

All those amazing moves those men/women make on the field, no wonder they call it the "beautiful game". They run their asses off without really taking a break. But footbrawl, they run 5 yards and have to take a three to five minute commercial break. 99% of footbrawlers wouldn't be able to keep up for one half, much less than the entire time for a game of futbol.

GO FUTBOL!!!!!!

My guess is cuz we were expected to laugh and make fun of futbol'European style being red blooded 'Mericans who climb rocks instead of kicking a silly ball round with our feet. Am I right?

Nigeria was horrible! I can't believe they qualified for the cup. They could hardly string a couple passes together and their finishing was horrendous. Yeah, they were playing Argentina, but Argentina almost didn't qualify this year. I think Argentina's reputation precedes its play so far this world cup.

Edit: The above comment is based on the second half (the half I saw).

No f*cking way. You always post such sweet comments, but this one is straight stoops. Not cheering for the USA, especially since we are the underdog, is sad and speaks very poorly about your moral fabric and character. How about you move to England? ....or at least to Texas? We don't need any treacherous, traitor Union Jack fans around these parts.

We all know the Germans are going to kick ass and take it home! HA! Germany has passed the first round of qualifiers since 1938! HA! In the bag. America was beaten by Ghana last World Cup (held in the Fatherland) and it was quite shameful. A tie today against England was a nice improvement, but still not a match fur Deutschland!

Soccer is like NASCAR. It's in the sports pages but I'm not sure why.

Just kidding...lots of athleticism in soccer. But it's hard to call a competition where points are scored maybe twice a decade a "sport." More like "violent, no hands confrontation, with an element of whiny street theater."

Soccer has always appeared as a game of keep-away between twenty-two players. Offsides, while historical, has no place in contemporary "Futbol."

Let there be goals!

+ 2 It's sort of like running a marathon, but only back and forth up and down a field while maybe kicking a ball every now and then. Games should be like 30 minutes and doubleheaders same day.

Here's the thing, not many in this country even remember who played in super bowls or world series; but more people across the planet remember how teams fared all throughout a World Cup, whether they actually made the final match or not.

As far as whiney asses -- I don't think it appears to be an American trait; Howard came back after getting throttled (possible rib fractures). Yesterday's match, full-on Aussie rules.

It could be tough-going for the Huns this time around; Aussie, Serbia, Ghana -- all show strong this Cup.


or not, 4-nil smack-down.


Here's excerpts from a great article, England away, Chris Jones

"RUSTENBURG, South Africa -- The bar was called Bulls. It was a rugby bar, named after the Blue Bulls, a provincial team from Pretoria, but today it would become a soccer bar. Today it would become an English bar filled with Englishmen. They would see it, and they would claim it. The bar was their territory.

And then the American college kids came in.

And then the police.


...More than 3,000 of the worst offenders have found their way onto something called the football banning order list. They can't go to domestic games, and whenever England travels away, they have to report to the police and turn in their passports. That list, combined with the sheer expense of coming to South Africa, meant that the English fans standing outside Bulls, including the boys from Grimsby, were probably not going to cause any trouble. Probably..."



I need to find out how to get on that list!!

I know I'm gonna take a bath for this but.....

Offsides is needed. You probably just don't like it because you don't appreciate the subtle nature of the offsides trap...or beating it. Its really pretty to watch a smoothly functioning defense nail people with offsides. I guess its hard to appreciate while watching it on TV.
