|Jun-27-16|| ||HeMateMe: 2-1! The Icers (Icees?) are winning. Mark, get that rope and chair away from the light fixture--it's only HALFTIME, for Pete's sake.|
Mark had it called right, Chile is a dam good team. I thought Argentina would beat them 2-1, 2-0, something like that, but they were tough and unafraid. Those two teams don't like each other too much, do they? Something about this was nationalistic?
I'm glad the refs didn't fall for all of the flopping, begging for yellow cards and penalty shots. You'd think every football player has rubber ankles after watching all of the bad acting in the first half. After the first half hour things settled down.
you'd of been proud of the USA viewers, Mark. The Meadowlands is one of the world's biggest and best stadiums. It's where the New York Giants and Jets play their home games, American football. It's Bruce Springsteen's office. A sport that can sell out Met Life Stadium, aka the Meadowlands, is a sport that has arrived here.
I think people here understood the off sides rules, how you get a corner kick, why players are allowed to run out of bounds without the clock stopping.
Twenty years ago the only thing I knew about football was that Pele was a historically great player and Posh was shagging Becks.
You'll still never convince an American sports fan that a 120 game should not allow a coach to empty his bench, let all 20 people play, or whatever a team is comprised of. But, were working on you Europeans, Mark. We'll get our way...
One of our top priorities has to be renaming the MVP award. "Balloon d' Or" sounds like a cup awarded at a poodle dog show. Good grief! Well, it's a French name, so that's understandable.

Chile and Argentina have the world's 3rd longest common border, over 3,000 miles. Breeds conflict.
|Jun-27-16|| ||HeMateMe: I don't see anyone here punching RMPs in the face, in the world's longest unfortified border. And, doesn't the Andes mountain range provide the distinction between the two countries, lets them live completely apart?|
|Jun-27-16|| ||plang: Iceland makes it to the quarters - and they looked like the better team.|
England had most of the possession but Iceland had the better scoring chances.

England crashing out in 2016 was utterly humiliating.
I hadn't seen an Icelandic beating like that since Björk lost her rag in that airport.>
|Jun-27-16|| ||Calli: Another Brexit!|
|Jun-27-16|| ||HeMateMe: It's Fischer's revenge! He never played Hastings, now did he?|
|Jun-27-16|| ||chancho: This is downright cruel:
|Jun-27-16|| ||HeMateMe: maybe some 'Friendlies against the USA men's team will sharpen them up?|
|Jun-27-16|| ||Keyser Soze: <hmm> US is already better than the brits. Told you so..|
|Jun-27-16|| ||User not found: Well no one pays attention to you so who cares. In fact I'm starting to realise I'm the ONLY person that listens to a word you say. Where were you when Brazil lost? Nowhere! Where were you when England and Messi (a player....not a team!) lost? Running around chessgames dot com saying "mimimimimimi". Fact is everyone knows you're a weirdo and I'm glad no one gives you the time of day, now get back to that hospital you just escaped from you strange little homosexual.|
|Jun-27-16|| ||Keyser Soze: Mimimi..
People also don't care for hooliganism/Mesi fanboysm
|Jun-27-16|| ||Keyser Soze: You can also exchange your forums' name to "the Walking Dead"|
|Jun-27-16|| ||Jim Bartle: I would like to praise the efforts of the Brazil football team in the Copa America. They smashed a strong Haiti team, drew with an oustanding Ecuador team, and came very close to a draw with powerful Peru, losing 1-0 in the final minutes.|
Brazil deserves praise for this outstanding effort, coming so close to reaching the second phase of the tournament.
|Jun-27-16|| ||User not found: Jimborinhio.. That sir is a memorable quote LOL|
|Jun-27-16|| ||Keyser Soze: <jb> Touché. But unlike noisy british we knew we would no go nowhere. And we dont bragg about our soccer especially when we suck big time. Lol|
We <know> our soccer (and about soccer)..btw do you know Guerreiro from Peru? He plays on my team Flamengo. Great striker. Sorry but I can't take the bait. I care much more for my club team than Brazil. Especially because we won so much already..
|Jun-27-16|| ||Jim Bartle: Brazil doesn't brag about its team when it wins? That's a new one.|
|Jun-27-16|| ||WannaBe: So, Jeremy Lim|
How much did I win?
|Jun-27-16|| ||User not found: <Keyser Soze: <jb> Touché. But unlike noisy british we knew we would no go nowhere.>|
There you go. Mistaking me for 4 different countries again! Nurse???
<And we dont bragg about our soccer especially when we suck big time. Lol>
Ever heard of the Pele museum? That Pele was the special guest on opening night, as he opened a museum in his own name...called The Pele museum that Pele never mentions? shocking.
<We <know> our soccer (and about soccer)..>
Stop referring to countries AGAIN! Everyone knows you say this garbage because you have a crush on me.... A European guy X. LOL.
<btw do you know Guerreiro from Peru?>
Do you know Muslim AJ from the underground market that get get you a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge for "much cheapness?". Then why you asking Jimborinhio about your non existent pal's!?
<Sorry but I can't take the bait.>
Anyone for a Freudian slipesque mem quote?
<I care much more for my club team than Brazil. Especially because we won so much already..>
Zzzzzzz. When does the Pele museum open?
|Jun-27-16|| ||HeMateMe: Why isn't there a New York Cosmos museum?
Ya hadda BE there!
|Jun-28-16|| ||plang: Pat Summitt died this morning|
|Jun-28-16|| ||HeMateMe: Frightening, early AZ. She was dx'd just five years ago. My cousin had dementia and died, but we don't know if it was AZ or not.|
|Jun-28-16|| ||HeMateMe: welcome to the Olympics!
|Jun-28-16|| ||Jim Bartle: I think more than anyone else, Pat Summitt brought women's basketball to prominence.|
|Jun-28-16|| ||HeMateMe: Tennessee was the first powerhouse. I'm not sure if she was the first to integrate the south in women's basketball or not. I think she played in the '76 Olympics in Montreal and started coaching at Tenn two years later.|
She did recruit some great players, a number of them came to visit with her over the past six months.
