The Continental Soccer Association is coming to Springfield! It's all here--fast-kicking, low scoring, and ties? You bet! You'll see all your favorite soccer stars! Like Ariaga! Ariaga II! Bariaga! Aruglia! And Pizzoza! And they'll all be signing autographs!
This match will determine once and for all which nation is the greatest on earth - Mexico or Portugal!

The implication that soccer is that exciting is the worst lie perpetrated by humans since people started denying the holocaust.

it's just a game man. it's as exciting as watching a sport could get. i mean it's sort of unlikely that the interconnectedness of modern society is going to flash on your screen in short allegorical bursts when you're watching american football or baseball or wherever people decide to get sweaty for the entertainment of others

the ping pong Federer-Rooney was awesome.

So, who do you think who will win and for whom you will cheer?

Have no idea who will win, probably some fan and his family who will take home a nice souvenir in a form of HIV.
Since our players were too busy partying and fucking whores to manage to qualify, I will cheer for Uruguay/Paraguay and Slovakia, and I hope Portugal doesn't make it out of the group and that piece of shit who doesn't even know how to kick a penalty properly will go home crying like a baby. Drogba, kick Ronaldo's ass!

to be fair, I'd be surprised if we don't lose every game. but who knows - after watching the 'friendly' last night there's something there.

We played Italy in a confederations warm-up last year and went down 4-3. If Italy and Slovenia field weakened teams we could be in with a shot.

That was Italy's B team fonz. They wont be fielding the B team at the world cup ... generally teams play their strongest lineups.

The kiwis played really well against Australia last night. Definitely had the measure of them in the first half despite those thuggish tackles. Great work from the big forwards, Fallon was outstanding and Chris Wood looked every bit as promising as he's made out to be when he came on. He'll be playing premier league next year for West Brom, v.exciting. Heartbreaking to see that second goal go in on in the literal last second of the game.

I'm looking forward to NZ being the 31st or 32nd best team at the cup. Our best shot is against Slovenia and we'd have to play very good football to come away with a draw against them.

05-24-2010, 11:05 PM
So as far as the big teams obv. Spain looks simply amazing this year. The only question mark for them are Torres and Ramos with one out of form and the other lacking a brain and even then ... what a team.

After that I think it's fairly close between the big teams. Brazil, Argentina, Germany, France and England all look great.

Spain v Brazil for the final would be the premium matchup I reckon.

Darkhorse prediction: I think the US team will fare better than ever this year

holland turn it up against mexico with a double for van persie. nice to see him showing a bit of form.

huge attacking talent for the dutch, which is nothing new. defence could be an issue. they'll be good to watch as usual. check out robben with bundesliga goal of the season .... amazing.

ice hockey has an artificially high ranking because of the novelty value. it's not a sport anyone really plays here and i hardly ever watch it on tv (i.e., once every two or three years). if i watched it often, maybe i'd think it was boring and overly physical like rugby. who knows
