  1. Whoa! That’s too much scoring for me, the excitement is overwhelming …

  2. Okay, I am starting to enjoy soccer, at least at the World Cup level. I actually jumped out of my chair when we finally put the ball in the net (again) and I may have uttered some words that would get me filtered when that ref screwed up and called offsides on our other goal. We could easily be in the Round of 8.

  4. I think there would be less fake injuries if people got hurt for real.

    Just say’in.

  5. The fake injuries are going to remain as a major stumbling block to me becoming a true fan.

  8. Sadly, it’s just not magical for me yet.

  9. Do you believe in slightly improbable outcomes? Yes!

  10. Okay, The Onion is almost as funny as happyfeet.

  11. DRJ needs one more goal after 120 or 180 more minutes of play to feel the magic.

  12. They needed to go into “overtime” (stoppage time) to score their first goal against Algeria? To me, that’s not really a good sign.

  13. stolen from AoSHQ:

    I don’t like soccer ’cause it sucks. I’m deep that way.

    there are about 8 pages more of knowledge i can put you, if you want it.

  14. Sam: England scored 0 goals on Algerai, stoppage time or not :)

    We scored early, ref blew the call; so we had to score (again) late

  15. Algeria even o.O

  16. “I” before “A” except when they’re gay, Lord Nazh.

    And they aren’t, as you can drill for oils off the coast of Algerai.

  17. Now that’s funny, I don’t care who you are…

    until JD calls us racist/homophobes of course.

  18. Watched some of the 2nd half on replay last night. Great game on both sides. Give them credit for playing hard. Algeria was a tough out.

  19. i liked someone’s comment last night on TV. I’ll try to paraphrase it as best as possible:

    “Yes, i watched the highlight. Yes, singular highlight. there is literally nothing else worth watching in the game, than the goal itself.”

    sorry, even if we are champions, i will won’t care about metric football.

  20. All I want is for Maradona to lose. I don’t care who does it. He is the dirtiest person in the history of soccer.

  21. Senoritas that play soccer
    Are most awfully tall and skinny
    They should eat an enchilada
    Or better yet hotdog weenie.
