Yea.  I heard she went on to marry some guy from Carrington whose nickname in school was Oxbunk6 or Oxbark6 or something like that.  Memory is a bit fuzzy after 30 years...

England absolutely flattened Panama this morning.

All the more reason to say:  How in the hell did the US not qualify?

Not disagreeing with your opinion of Bruce Arena, but he inherited a dumpster fire after USA lost the first two games of the Hex.

Hiring him is the equalivalent of pouring gas on that fire.

There are cures for Hepatitis C.  Hep B is a lot harder because the virus finds safe harbor in genes of the liver.

You just knew Argentina was going to figure out a way through the group to the knockouts.

How is that any different than a tense 1-0 hockey game?

A huge difference in the number of shots and scoring chances.  Hockey is up and down the ice even with a low scoring game.  40 total shots on goal in a 1-0 game is not unheard of along with exciting goalie play.  A soccer team with a 1-nil lead can bog down what ever action there was for an entire game.  It's like watching paint dry except not as exciting.

Kinda like Duluth with a 1 goal lead?

Ive seen great 1-0 soccer games.  

If all you are looking for is shots then you aren't really watching the game the right way.

Unrelated note:

Maradona MUST have been on something to react the way he did the entire game in his executive suite.  He was insane!

He’s from Argentina. Passionate people. Also he’s got a history with the cane.

Best sport in the world.

They need to eliminate the flopping, diving, etc.  It’s ridiculous watching them grab their ankle every time they get bumped.

There have been a few simulation yellows handed out but I’d like to see more. It’s really hard to police, just like in hockey.

The same can be said about pretty much every sport. Especially hockey.

I watched the first 8 minutes of Spain vs  Morocco.  Then had to shut it off; its become more about faking injuries to create opportunities than actually trying and competing.
