This blog is more exciting than any soccer game I ever watched.
To be fair I have only tried to watch a few but they just didn't hold my attention.
I am in Greece watching people in cafes watch the World Cup and trying to watch myself. Their home team lost yesterday in I think a 2-0 match to Columbia. Must have been considered a wipe out. Boring!
My hat's off to the athleticism of the lean soccer players who run their buts off while most of our stocky football players just smash into each other repeatedly. I guess they kill themselves for our benefit so we can go home quietly--the modern equivalent of sacrifical lambs ;-)
"I say this despite a fair knowledge of soccer. "
"...after two brief over times"
It's not soccer, its football.
And whatever you want to call it, nobody calls "extra time", "overtime"
I think its best we leave your expertise there.
