    I'd pickpocket the hell out of Bryan.

    But I wouldn't be reaching in for the cash.

    My friend and I took advantage of that $20 lawn ticket. Shame that's what they're having to do for it.

    Absolutely gorgeous goal.

    Absolutely boring game. (minus the first 20 minutes of the 1st half)

  31. Re: The Official Soccer, Football, Futbol, and Footie Thread

    That really was a silly call. That and the one call in the first half that should've simply not been called to give us play advantage were lame.

    Italy is going to protest to FIFA big time on that. If that really was the second time he's bitten someone, then he deserves a pretty severe punishment.

    You have to defend Howard a bit here. Blocking a one-timed shot at near point blank range at that speed is incredibly difficult, even if the ball is within reach. Look at any other goal in football...

    Our midfield is falling apart though. Dempseys goal was practically a lucky fluke, because we are being outplayed so far.
