A Tie? Holy Crap!

USA pulls off a tie with an Italian "own goal" leading the way. Unbelievable. Now if they can beat Ghana (a tall order as Ghana beat the Czechs and the Czechs already spanked the US 3-nil), they can actually advance.

We know, no one cares aside from us, Lefty, Rue St. Michel and 5 other coppers. Oh well.

It sucks that I don't have cable and when I'm on the street and stop in at a shop that has ESPN and other cable sports outlets, they never have the World Cup on!

I even had one restaurant owner surf alittle to see if any of the matches were on and some demented White Sox fan screamed, "Hey! I was watching that!" My reply to him was, "You know what? I'm out here working and came here to get some grub. I get 30 minutes to order, eat and go. You don't have to sit here and watch baseball because you can go home and see it - to your heart's content!"

Just venting ... I'm worked up reading about "Fat Nick" Minucci and the Hate Crime guilty verdict that they just slapped on him.

Go USA! And Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!

THE CZECHS ALSO HAVE TO LOSE AGAINST ITALY COMBINED WITH A WIN FROM THE U.S. THEN THE U.S. ADVANCES. SOUNDS LIKE WE WILL PLAY AGAIN IN 4 YEARS....

Even I, dear M, believed the red card given to the United States' Mastroeni was undeserved. The two yellow cards given to his teammate Pope were deserved.

The fact the U.S. played with only nine players almost the entire second half shows they can compete with the rest of the world.

Italy should beat the Czechs, but we need to attack more. Also, I cannot understand why Arena did not make the last substitute he had available.

The U.S. play even had me cheering for a victory. I hope the lads in The Kremlin don't read this, or I'll be forced to turn in my CPUSA card.

Well, soccer is Europes "football" and if you don't like it, turn the channel. It sure beats watching overpaid gorillas with dreadlocks sticking out from their helmets do a sickening ghetto dance in the end zone.

when one of the coppers came out to me and said it was tied 1-1 I asked, "did Italy score a goal for them?" woo, i must be psychic.

I would rather watch the gorillas in dreads throw and catch the ball, then the whiney europeans and south americans kick the ball.
All this is moot, as Hockey (a real sport, played by skilled persons) is on.

To quote the movie Youngblood, "thank God there is still a sport for mid-sized white boys"

Soccer, another way to disrupt American traditions. I can't believe all the soccer being played in our parks and I hate seeing our kids adopting the sport of foreign countries. Clincher (16 inch softball), a Chicago tradition is rarely found played in our parks, WHAT A SHAME!!! It goes to show you how much foreign influence there is in this country.
Anyone know where I can see a good game of Clincher softball?
