|Mar-25-14|| ||Diademas: Howdy KKDEREK.
Nice to see you with your own account.
May I ask where you are from?
|Mar-25-14|| ||KKDEREK: Thanks <diademas>. Having fun. Im originally from Brazil, lived in coupe of places and I'm back in Rio.
I wish to make a place to bet for World Cup results. But Im not sure we have so much soccer fans around here..heh|
|Mar-25-14|| ||Diademas: Greetings from the other side of the globe.
I have to admitt that the best team I have ever seen was Brazil 82'.
Here in Norway we are brought up on English football, but the revelation I had the summer of 82 as a 15 year old Norwegian lad learning names like Socrates, Eder, Falcao, Junior and Tafarell has followed me ever since.
I remember crying after the Italian rapists beat you 3-2. Cloudio Gentile should have been hanged, drawn and quartered for his treatment of Zico.
This year, I'm sorry to say: I see Brazil as an outsider behind Spain and Argentina.
My country, Norway, will never win the World Cup, but at least I can brag about being in Marseilles June 23. 1998 when we beat Brazil 2-1!
|Mar-25-14|| ||KKDEREK: Don't complain! You guys at least have Carlsen now. lol|
Yes, it was pretty bad I remember I saw that game just a kid and felt very bad to see my personal idol Zico, go down..Very nice to you say that. I cried as well, all journalists could not believe after the game especially after Falcao tied at 2-2 in a dramatic fashion (was beautiful to see him screaming in awe after his goal). Yeah that referee was unbelievable . Zico got his t-shirt ripped apart. The highlights:
Whatta game anyway. top 10 all time, like for example Italy 4-3 Germany semifinals from 1970 WC, young Beckenbauer and his young (and bright) generation already kicking ass and showing what we could expect 4 years later .
As for next WC, IMO no, Argentinians they usually chokes bad playing in Brazil. Home court in south america soccer counts much. They rarely beat Brazil here..Besides IMO they defense is awful. Messi must go wild to something happen to them. Is his last chance IMHO. After that he will be 30..
I think Germany is even dangerous than Spain. We are not afraid of Spain anymore after we crushed them 3-0 at Confederations Cup..But granted, Spain and Argentina (and Germany) are favorites, and Brazil just have a shot because of his home court.
|Mar-25-14|| ||Jim Bartle: Brilliant play by Zico on that first goal, on the video.|
Was the guy who marked him really named Gentile?
|Mar-25-14|| ||Diademas: Yes <Jim Bartle>. I guess even Italian parents can have a sence of humor... ;-)|
|Mar-25-14|| ||KKDEREK: <Jim Bartle: Brilliant play by Zico on that first goal, on the video.
Was the guy who marked him really named Gentile?>|
I was abaut to say that. Amazing play, I think it was Scirea.
|Mar-25-14|| ||perfidious: <Jim> Do you remember the baseball player Jim Gentile? He had a big '61 season, which was overshadowed by Maris and his 61 homers, as well as Norm Cash's career year. Believe he had been trapped in the Dodger farm system behind Gil Hodges--not quite the same as being a Yankee prospect in Gehrig's shadow, but quite enough.|
|Mar-25-14|| ||KKDEREK: Ok I have a question (and already a pic). Who's the best quarterback ever (and why?) My impression is that you guys take a lot of importance to statistics..|
|Mar-25-14|| ||Jim Bartle: Sure, Jim Gentile. Played for Baltimore.
Norm Cash was a funny guy, had to bat in the last inning against Nolan Ryan, throwing a no-hitter, maybe Koufax. Came up to the plate with a table leg, said he couldn't hit Ryan that day with a bat.
|Mar-25-14|| ||Jim Bartle: Very difficult to say who the best quarterback is, or was, especially with the rule changes through the years. Some of the best were Staubach, Unitas, Montana, Young, Elway, Marino, Fouts, Favre, Kelly, Aikman. Manning and Brady among today's QBs, maybe Brees as well.|
|Mar-25-14|| ||KKDEREK: Here, I'm 99% sure people would give an edge for Montana..As far as I read and saw (videos), that guys was from the other planet..|
|Mar-25-14|| ||Jim Bartle: OK, Montana was on my team, the 49ers, so it's hard to judge. He was brilliant, of course, and never got nervous, but he also had a great offensive in Walsh and great receivers like Rice, Clark and Craig. It's hard to judge. |
In my opinion, in the same period, late 80s, Marino was a little better.
|Mar-25-14|| ||KKDEREK: I really like football. And I love history (not just at sports). I will check more about american football. I have seen some nice docs .Check this one, got me impressed.|
|Mar-25-14|| ||Jim Bartle: Yes, concussions are a big problem in American football. They are causing a lot of damage, especially later in life. At least three have committed suicide around the age of 45 or 50. |
But big hitting is a key part of the game, so the challenge is to have hitting while still protecting the players.
|Mar-25-14|| ||OhioChessFan: Steve Young. Joe Montana with running skills.|
|Mar-26-14|| ||KKDEREK: Nice call <ohio>.|
|Apr-04-14|| ||KKDEREK: I'm surprised..

QFT (Quoted For Truth)
|Apr-07-14|| ||KKDEREK: <perf> heh
Not in soccer at least. I myself, would never bet against my team, because I really love them, but problme is, he very often suck. lol So, I just bet in something else. If we switch for your field, poker, well, is tough to control your chances 100% especially after some drinks. I guess maybe that's why I will never became a pro. :o)
|Apr-07-14|| ||perfidious: <KKDEREK> Luck is that good old X Factor, but without it, the same very few people would get the money every time.|
No games then.
|Apr-16-14|| ||KKDEREK: Wow, Barcelona became a bitch..Wake up Messi..|
|Apr-17-14|| ||KKDEREK: IMHO by far the best World Cup film (1982)..Great Cup, drama, *awesome* shots, amazing soundtrack, Sean connery! Truly recommend!|
You can find the OST here..
"G'ole - 1983"
