Here's a short primer on the world cup for those who don't usually watch it: [url=http://volokh.com/2010/06/07/world-cup-2010/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+volokh/mainfeed+(The+Volokh+Conspiracy)]Link[/url]


Also, it made me wish I was watching it in another country.

Off to the Irish Pub for some $3 draft Irish beer and a free domestic draft every time the fucking frogs get scored on. Go Mexico and Uruguay!

The bar owner still wanted to give out free shots at least, so he changed it to a free shot every time the French got a yellow or red card.

I'm okay with tying England, who was expected to beat us soundly. Go USA!

First major upset just happened, with the Swiss beating Spain. The Swiss defense did an amazing job against the very strong Spanish team.

Unfortunately I was working during this game so I missed it, but I heard all about it.

Woohoo! Go Mexico! They kicked some cheese eating surrender monkey ass yesterday (and got me 4 free shots of tequila at the bar).

Next up this morning, USA! Back to the pub I go.

Yeah, I was rather sad when I found out there isn't a "Murder the shitty fucking ref" app on my android phone... Mad I wanted that man to die, which isn't a feeling I often have towards other people. Also, Torres is a giant bag of suck, I was very glad he was subbed out in the second half.


A bit off topic, but related, has anyone heard from Chow since the expo? I would think he would be all over this thread.

Haha, so the French soccer team is refusing to practice today, one of their best forwards has been sent home for fighting with the coach, and the team director has quit! Go Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys!

The England team visited an orphanage in Cape Town today. "It's heartbreaking to see their sad little faces with no hope" said Jamal aged 6.

They are on fire this year. Now we won't need Beckham for people to pay any attention at all to this semisphere.

CHOW! WTF? Cat got your tongue? Maybe he doesn't want to jinx them. I'm not sure it matters, though, since our team has clearly sold their souls to the devil. How else can you explain it?

Yeah, I've seen Chow's name show up as checking the board, but no posts, what gives?

As for the team, I can't believe how well they are doing, especially after having two good goals called back in two different games. Today's was even worse than the first one. At least with the first, you could make a bit of a case, although not much of one, that the ref maybe saw something from his angle that made it seem justified. Today, there was no justification for such a ridiculously bad offsides call.

On another note, if I was Algerian, I would be incredibly pissed at my team. It was obvious towards the end that they had all but given up on scoring, and were just trying to screw us out of moving on, at the loss of their own chance to continue. They needed to win, and win big today, but they made absolutely no move to push forward with enough effort to do so. They continually held enough players back to prevent almost any American counter attack (except one coming off of Howard's AWESOME throw to Donovan).

I wonder if the British goalie still has a job?
