    The great thing about the US Costa Rica game in the blizzard is that none of the players wanted to lay around in the snow faking an injury - it was too cold. It almost completely eliminated the diving.

    Is there a cable company that lets you watch soccer matches online or a soccer pss like NBA league pass?

    I want to watch the games on my computer without having to deal with the bootleg shit.

    I don't get it. The game already happened. Do you expect people not to talk about soccer games until everyone who posts in this thread has seen them? Or is there some sort of accepted TV schedule that makes your request reasonable? Not trolling, honestly curious.

    haha pipito gets one too, of course easy tap in

    This is only the second time that Ronaldo, Benzema and Higuain have all scored in the same Champions League game for Real Madrid (Mar 12 v CSKA).

    honestly Benz+Hig together were lethal last year. should sacrifice a midfielder to keep that but who?

    Easy tap in is flicking a header down from 12 yards out on a set play?

    This. If you are trying to tape the game and watch it later, wouldn't it make sense to avoid the thread where soccer is being discussed if you don't want to see spoilers?!?

    Game was still on when he posted the spoiler. I refreshed my threadlist and saw RM was up 2 - 0. It was definitely during the game because Madrid added a 3rd.


    I did avoid the thread. I glanced at my threadlist and saw "2-0 Benz scored", when I saw BENZ I looked closer since I thought it meant Mercedes and thought it was the cars we drive thread. Then I realized it was the football thread and was like :fu:

    Benz is short for Karim Benzema, a Real Madrid striker who scored in the match.
