Fans will blame anything but their gods' inability to score. :P

BTW, any words on Greene's partner?

10 annoying things about the World Cup--great piece of snark! (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/news/story?id=5288738)

Agreed with 5 and nothing else :P. Saw Argentina today and boy they really need to tone down on the acting. Some Argentines were rolling on the ground for 5 min. when we saw clear as day on the replay that the Koreans didn't even touch them. Beautiful game BTW. Messi is God and Maradona looks like a cute Russian doll :rofl:

Oh, and I'm thoroughly enjoying the universal bashing of Chinese national team on Sina when the other Asian teams were doing so well. After :o in 2002 and :rolleyes: in 2008 and all the scandals, who follows Chinese soccer any more? :lol:

USA vs. Slovenia is going to be intense tomorrow. I just hope I can smoothen out all the finger nails on my cheeks before going to work. Go USA :kickass:

Hah, that's such an American take on soccer. I do very much agree about the vuvuzelas, though. I get that they're a South African thing, but I imagine that it's near-impossible for players to hear each other/their coaches when they're on the field.

A lot of the falls hat the players take are probably more for drama than anything else (Cristiano Ronaldo's diving tumble is really a perfect, beautiful thing), but it is really easy for soccer players to get hurt. They aren't wearing any padding, like the hockey players that the author mentions, and they're all exhausted after running constantly up and down that huge field for 90 minutes, so I'm willing to give them a break...

ScapeWAG for Spain? (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/06/17/sara-carbonero-iker-casil_n_615832.html) Go ahead and blame it on the women. We can take it ;)


Ewwww, Domenech is still there! :blah:

Wow, France is in a real danger zone now. Half-time and in a scoreless tie. Underdog Mexico would probably be happy with a tie, perhaps, already ahead of France due to having scored a goal in their previous tie ... and with South Africa as their final match.

06-17-2010, 08:28 PM
No, Mexico's final match is against Uruguay, not South Africa, so if they tie, they'll need to beat Uruguay and hope that France loses to South Africa or that they (Mexico) come ahead on goal differential.

06-17-2010, 08:38 PM
D'oh. Well, :P France is still in a danger zone that certainly wasn't expected. But, yeh, a tie is surely less rosy for Mexico than I'd outlined with my false facts.

I'll stick to analyzing tennis and NFL ... since I'm always right about those. :sheep:

Ah, France, you're fcuked.

Chicharrito :cheer:

06-17-2010, 08:52 PM
Mexico scores :cheer2:

:lol: Spanish commentators went crazy cheering "México lindo y querido"

06-17-2010, 08:52 PM
And it's a goal by...... Javier Fernandez! :P :cheer:

Poor France, not looking good for them.

06-17-2010, 08:53 PM
:EVILLE: Thanks Mexico, please hold on another 20 minutes! :P

06-17-2010, 08:56 PM
French defenders :rofl:

I'm supporting the Frenchies but Mexico more than deserve their lead.

Do France even WANT to win?! They look so uninspired.

06-17-2010, 09:01 PM
I think we need to teach the Mexican strikers about the offside rule.

06-17-2010, 09:03 PM
Goooo Mexico!!!!
They have to win they have to win they have to win

Not that I'm against France, but I totally like the Mexican team.
