lol at the mental picture of a bunch of ululating kooks rolling into a city of opulence in their busted Toyota Tundras. It'll be just like that time I crashed a confirmation party at Medinah Country Club, but with less ululating.

Looks like the admiral is watching team USA while rooting for team LSD or is it team THC ?

And who says a 0-0 can't be a good game? Italy's semifinal vs. Germany in 2006 is widely regarded as one of the best games of this past decade, and it was 0-0 until the 119' minute

Until the 7-1 Maracanazo II Germany put up against Brazil last year, I'd never seen a home, World Cup crowd so stunned and saddened by a World Cup game outcome as on that day when Italy opened up the floodgates near stoppage time in that 2nd extratime in that 2006 semifinal.

The term is actually Mineirazo.

I think Soccer needs to eliminate the off-sides rule and that will open up scoring and help boost American Interest.

No. Doesn't offsides promote action by pulling defenses out into action, ever tilting the field back & forth, instead of guys standing like a wall in the box all game?

That would make it less high scoring as defences would virtually be standing on the goal line as a striker would always be virtually standing in the oppositions box all the time which would lead to high punts up the field and ruin the passing aspect.
