Disappointed

Not that there was a realistic chance for them to go all the way, but the USA was roundly spanked by the Czechs in their opening World Cup match 3-0 (or nil as football fans say). And it isn't getting any easier when they face Italy on Saturday. If we recall, this was one of the "groups of death" from which only a single team (instead of two) was expected to emerge into the second round, but it would have been nice to see at least one US victory. Oh well, there's always 2010.

HELLO DOLLY! (maggee daley)

We had World Cup here in Chicago in '94, and it was a total BOMB! It really sucked the BIG ONE! The Brass were expecting millions, all days off cancelled, special bridges built to cross Lake Shore Drive (that were hardly used) and only several thousand came. The Big Hotels were neer empty waiting for guests that never showed.

Now our Mayor wants to redesign the lake front to put in the olympics. Put up a collapsing building? Tear down McCormick Place East (which they spent millions re-habbing just a few years ago).

Oh and by the way, the bridge they built to cross LSD (that would have stood for 40-50 years) was torn down after world cup soccer, cause the city only rented it!
It cost us a million or so.

We cannot afford anymore of Daleys Visions for our future. Put the money in our pension fund mr. mayor. Your grand ideas are killing us and making us poor.

The U.S. is done, over, finished, completed, finto. They have played the worst game of the World Cup so far.

They'll lose later this week to the Italians and next week Ghana will give them a good match. Guess "Sam's Army" will have to wait until 2010 in South Africa for the next World Cup. Kind of like Cubs' fans, "wait till next year!"

"Disappointed" is such a great title for this whole blogsite. I came across this while going thru other blogs and then realized it was the Chicago Police. I just wanted to say how "disappointed" I am in the disrespect Chicago Police Officers have for each other. Calling each other names, bad mouthing, insulting. As a civilian it scares me that CPD Officers feel this way about each other. This blog has totally changed my whole opinion of the Chicago Police Department. I used to admire and respect you. Now...I have second thoughts on the Second City Cops. I would think this was not the intentions of the person that initiated this blog and would think they would remove the ignorance of some from here. It scares me to think that Officers hate other Officers. If they can't cover each other's ass and 'run silent and deep' with any Department incident, especially on a public viewed blog....how as Civilians can we expect them to cover our 'ass'. I used to think Chicago PD was the best out there. Now I realize there's just a bunch of losers who don't have a life and have to bad-mouth and degrade fellow officers on a public viewed blog. How sad and scarey is that!!??? I had intentions of taking the CPD Exam. I feel now I don't want to work with the likes of you. And these people are college educated....so the Department's requirement goes. The Department would be better off hiring the gang bangers. At least they know where they are coming from.
