    Oh, the crowds always do get into it - I was referring more specifically to the players singing along while standing in the lines during pregame and the anthems.
    The mere fact that someone younger than Özil (Göetze) is challenging him for his spot is really frightening. Their average age now is like 23, no? And it's that high just because of Klose still sticking around.

    US coaches need to train how to keep on your feet, they looked like they were playing on an ice rink

    Our forwards are weak and many of our younger players are too inexperienced (Spector, Ream, Beckerman, Altidore still) though Chandler and Shea looked great. Also, Onyewu is such a badass (maybe because he reminds me of Common)

    Love when they cut to Henry and he's paying more attention to his phone than the match

    Iran-Bahrain was supposed to be a good game. The red card in the second minute ruined it. Very stupid player doing a very stupid challenge.RUined the game,the second leg will hopefully be better if its 11 vs 11

    ^ Greedy Americans, two shit clubs fighting for a shit Olympic stadium, Ashley Cole raging with Snoop Dogg in London, Tevez getting grounded, and much more. Good round up of shit.

    I have a lil love affair with Portugal (learning some Portuguese now [​IMG]) so I naturally pull for their Nat. team. Pretty disappointing that they're going to have to play-off their way in. Ronaldo's free kick was sublime though.

    That was a brilliant strike. I took a year of Portuguese in university - kind of as a cheap way to get lots of credit hours of A building off the castellano. I think it's a great language - especially listening for the differences between the continental variety and that of Brasil. I have sympathies for Portugal for the same reasons as you - although I'll die hating Brasil's superiority over Argentina :embar:

    hahaha DOnt forget that Bahrain kicked ur ass a couple of years ago 3-0 to stop you from going to the WC when they had nothing to lose and you had everything to gain. That was a stronger Iranian team and 11 vs.11

    Ireland get the perfect draw for Euro 2012 playoffs.

    And I'll be going to my first MLS match next week.
