    Dortmund beat Bayern 3-2 in the German Cup semi final. I normally don't have any preferences but after everything they've been through, I'm really happy for Dortmund! :cheer2:

    Not the most exciting game ever played but they are now eligible for the UEFA Champions League next season and they are now 1 of 5 teams, and the 2nd English team, to have won all of the UEFA trophies available.

    Arsenal 2 v 1 Chelsea in the FA Cup Final. Interesting game in that Arsenal were clearly the better team in this game. Chelsea won the Premier league title by certainly being the best team over the 38 game season, but in this one game for the FA Cup trophy they were not even close to being the best team on the field. Such is sport....:)

    NJL (another example would be the NE Patriots losing to a lesser NY Giants in 2 Super Bowls, events I dearly loved..;)..)

    Nice to see Huddersfield advance to the Premier League for the first time since 1972!

    USA 1 v 1 Mexico at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City. USA gets an unexpected point in a place that is one of the most difficult venues for the visiting team to do anything but lose. Mexico stays #1 in the Hex. The USA moves up to #3 temporarily.

    Germany won the U21 European Championship title on Friday, playing 1:0 against Spain, and today, the so-called "Perspektiv-Team" (a team consisting of a lot of very young players, many who have never played on the team before) won the ConfedCup 1:0 against Chile. :cheer2: :cheer2:

    OK, I'll comment...;-)

    USA and Jamaica will play in the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final Wednesday night @ 9PM EDT on FS1 in the US.

    More than likely the game will start at 10PM with a full hour of gab and commercials starting at 9PM.

    It could be good. The USA has scored 11 goals and Jamaica has only given up 2. I predict the the team that scores 1st will win. We will see.
