So much for the epic WC match 


5-0 Germany over Brazil at half.  What a joke.  Kinda reminds me of a certain NCG a couple years ago flushed

Good lord...Brazil has been bad and Germany have been super. Well, my office pool pick is looking much better. BTW, I'm sure that Kurz is happy.

Aww not this world cup stuff again.

Had to look this up.  Sure enough, Kurz Is a German word meaning "short".   The only question left Is If It Is just ironic (meaning Kurz Is actually tall)  or does his name fit him literally?

I'm about 6'4 and my actual last name is Kurzhal which my German ancestors cut down from Kurzhals. 

I am so trilled. I was nervous before this game almost as much as I was before the ND v Bama game.

This game had to have been rigged.  I don't know what the betting line was but considering Brazil hasn't lost a competitive match at home in like 60 years I would say it was in favor of Brazil winning.  Also considering how corrupt Brazil is somebody made ALOT of money.

Re: So much for the epic WC match 


All this hoo-hah about soccer is silly. It's a sissy sport to begin with. The media hypes the hell out of it because they want to ultimately make it a big TV event. Kind of reminds me of the NFL back in the 50's. There wasn't a lot of interest in it compared to college ball, so the networks hyped it into the mega-sport it is today.

Soccer won't catch on in the US. Bunch of guys in shorts kicking a ball around for an hour and a half and it ends 1 - 0. Booooooring.

Who cares?  I do.  And many people who I know do.  It is a shame it hasn't already since I think it is a wonderful, passionate sport...but it is getting better.  The problem the USA has is the best athletes do not grow up wanting to be a soccer player.  They want to play basketball, baseball, and football.  If the trend continues with pop-warner football numbers declining nation-wide (parents not letting their kids play football), maybe more kids will stick with soccer.  Fun fact, soccer is the most played sport among kids in America.  We have the talent pool, we just need the best athletes (or at least 23 of them) to want to play international soccer.

Re: So much for the epic WC match 


I hate to tell you, but with the younger generation, it is catching on...

And in the best shape of my life while in the military, i dont think i could run for almost 90 mins straight. It may not have alot of contact, but it is by far a sissy sport.

 BTW, if you watched the US loose 2-1  with all the scoring coming in overtime, you would not have said it was a boring 0-0 game until the overtime started.

It's entirely the internet's fault.  It's a silly game, IMO, only because it's almost inherently under-officiated and flopping/acting is so important to the result, but the world gets smaller year by year with this damn internet thing, and the U.S. is ultimately helpless against something the rest of the world finds so GD fascinating/important.

Not sure.  I haven't watched the NBA in...

What year did the Pistons last make the playoffs?
