WADE PLAYING FOR A DIFFERENT TEAM? there is something special about players who stay with one team, and if wade wants tomb a mercenary or play with his buddies elsewhere, his status as the greatest heat player will get a little tarnish on it.

Big Baby, no choice between the portugese inquisitors and the polish incinerators. still believe belgium is gonna win the trophy. germany has a long history of losing to italy in big tourneys, and don't think iceland will find the french to be as horrid as the english were on monday. looking back, the english had a bunch of shots come close tom the target, but none went in. the weak left mitt of joe hart also came into play,again.

buddy ryan: gets into a fight with the teams OC cause he doesn't like offense that pass. we should all remember the defensive "genius" who had a 35-3 lead with houston over the bills and allowed frank reich to lead the greatest comeback in NFL playoff history.

Señor Woodcock, yeah, the torquemada fella really did us a big favor. my ancestors never got to spain or portugal; eastern europe-the romans took them to europe where they hunkered down in poland, only to find those pogroms getting to be old hat and left for the luscious surroundings of the carpathian mountains. and every jim healy reference is appreciated. be blessed and have a great day!! how warm did it get at the beaches during last weeks heat wave?

citizens, kevin durant is what ralph sampson wanted to be- a three point shooter with no presence under the basket. durant was great in his one year playing for texas, where he actually got involved in defending in the key. i don't see him much, but from what i have seen he looks reluctant to play defense near the basket. the heat would be better off keeping whiteside, but he wants money that i hear the heat don't want to give him. he was a real find who will go wherever they give him his millions.

WHAT FODDER!!! citizens, the english papers are having a field day bashing roy hodgson and their national team after yesterdays performance. ian darke and steve macamanan (sic) were up in the booth bewildered at both the play of then team, and more importantly the dreadful managing of roy hodgson. again in futbol, it was boys playing against men, and the icelanders were the men. harry kane taking the corners instead of having his tall frame awaiting the kick time after time, free kicks sailing over the goal by miles, waiting until four minutes were left to put in the boy wonder, who had an impact on the play for the few minutes he was on. wayne rooney, aside from his PK, looking lost in the midfield, and on and on. plus joe hart who has weak hands which let in goals that the hungarian in the sweatpants would easily deflect out of danger. its was a great watchband now a couple of days off until portugal and their prime donna play poland. i'll watch all the games with the exception of germany on saturday, but from here it looks like belgium and their players from the belgian congo along with eden hazard and de bruyne.

the english won't be allowed back in!!! they were so bad against iceland, and with a coach who had been spending months/years accumulating the "talent" for his team, at $4 million/year.

Big Baby, england has no world class elite players, and no goalkeepers of note. it'll be a long time before the brits can field a team that can make it to the semis of a prominent tournament.

THE ABYSS OF ENGLISH FOOTBALL!! always root for the underdogs, and even though i like the english, i root for the unfavored- like butter douglas when he beat mike tyson silly, amongst many others who weren't fancied by the wise guys, with leicester city being, up till now, the kings of the downtrodden.

THE NADIR OF ENGLISH FOOTBALL!!!! (see post @ 1:55) this game was invented by the english, and now the blondies from the island of volcanoes and glaciers are handing it to the brits. joe hart-OMG!!!!!

Señor Woodcock, my idea of a good football game is 10-7, 14-0 and the like. i believe those days are like kelsey's nutmeg!!

Señor Woodcock, sorry you didn't find chile/argentina to be interesting. today's italy/spain tussle was great. the italian team had a masterful plan for the more offensively superior spaniards. geez, i with the NFL undid allmthose rules the make it a gem of flag football with concussions. i read that rugby was gonna be an olympic sports in brazil, which is great- as the american viewers can see real tough men who play w/o helmets and pads and are mandated to tackle, really tackle with the head having to be on either side of the runner and makes for no head-on collisions, which are penalties.well, onto what may be the nadir of english football if iceland should win against an english team that can't score.

Big Baby, fantastic game between italy and spain. italy didn't have the players of pst teams, but their coach had a plane which was in control until about the 75th minute, when spain regrouped and the play was in italy's end. buffon made a great save, after which a fantastic long cross in spain's end made for the critical 2nd goal. spain chased the game for an hour, but even an awesome game by david de gea couldn't prevent the azure from a date with the krauts on saturday. terrific match between two powerful teams. adios, spain and thanx for that inquisition you treated my ancestors to in the 15th century.

another sad ending for the albiceleste.. sorry Big Baby that your team wasn't up to the PKs. ironic that barces's goalkeeper spoiled the efforts of his teammates. our friends don't imagine what it is like to run around in sprints and then take PKs, a lot of them missed in the euros (see ronaldo). well two of the big boys go at it followed by what may be another crusher for the english

Big Baby, the argentinos have had a few clear shots at goal and have whiffed. they gotta all be tired and unless someone makes a horrible blunder, we will be going to PKs again between these two. does mascherano ever make a mistake?
1 reply
well, even steven!!! half #2 should be wide open and thrilling with both teams down to ten men. it had been a good game except for that foul/crad crazy brazilian referee. we'll see...,

Big Baby, michael bradley dreams of being javier mascherano. #14 is a world class futboler. chile was giving them a good match, despite that horrible miss on the breakaway. teams minus a man tend to thrive on the counterattack, like england did against your men after beckham got tossed in 98. the english played a great game a man down and fell to the penalties after tieing the english on a cute set play after the fantastic score by the great michael owen.

Big Baby, a tricky-tack foul send diaz to the pee-pee room for a test. what was a great action packed match has now been turned upside down. at least now the guy with the deep voice whom i have come to appreciate is calling the action on univision desportes.

Biog Baby, an hor from game time, and i still don't know if alexis sanchez is playing. hope so. tomorrow england vs iceland to go along with spain/italy. england is a giant ? and has the ability to lose to the country with 330,000 people.

Big Baby, this hungarian goalkeeper playing in gray sweatpants is a hoot!! 40 years old and still effective, plus that fashion statement is too much. i don't believe france is that good, and they'll play iceland/england winner. nice that smallish wales is alive, would like to see hungary (my parents, OBM, were born in a village that went back and forth between romania and hungary every other year up there in the carpathian mountains. the communal gravestone for the village of ruscova (you can youtube to see the simplicity of european hillbilly life) states that the hungarians were the allies of the germans during the destruction of european jewry, but i'llm still root for the oldies but goodies representing budapest. methinks chile will win the match tonight, sanchez or not. argentina has a really strong and tight defense, but chile plays a wide-open game with real stars and should be able to score a couple of times. but, then there are messi and mascherano...

Jimbo, players in europe start in team "academies"and as a result are somewhat at an advantage over the one and done bunch. ben simmons picked #1? the guy can't shoot and he is gonna play "point forward'? the old school concept was that point guards have to be able to pull up and hit qa jumper from the free throw line.methinks buddy held was the most NBA ready of the whole crowd of teenagers.
