    "Soccer is the reason the Mayflower was so crowded".

    Ah, that would be association football.

    This reminds me of a sign post I once saw - I don:t know if it was meant to be funny or if the person who posted it just didn:t think about it:

    No Soccer Allowed on the Football Field. Soccer Can be Played on the Archery Range.

    A flashy fashion-victim (BECKHAM) and a real
    World superstar (ZIDANE)...
    Honestly, the English team has been defensively
    heroic.
    They should beat Switzerland, I think.

    Firstly it wasn't the Brits it was the English team, big difference. There's no way they took anything for granted in terms of a win; they were defending like madmen. It was a highly unusual occurance in soccer.

    "Ne pas vendre la peau de l'ours avant de l'
    avoir tué."
    (French proverb that says something like:
    Never sell the skin of the bear before you
    have killed it.)
    This is exactly what happened to the Brits
    against France.
    What a terrible disillusion for them...
    Same rule for track: No victory before the
    arrival line is crossed!!!

    Sorry to bump this up again but the week just got even worse...

    Lakers completely humiliated last night was bad enough. Right now I'm meant to be on a plane to Seattle. Fight cancelled and I'm put on one 3 hours later, decide to come home (15 mins from LAX), get ticket driving out of the airport...England playing Switzerland tomorrow a.m. Suggest eveyone puts serious $$$ on Swiss as at the rate I'm going they are guaranteed a win...

    Czech team right now is very good I think. They will be a big challenge for Germany and Holland

    <Pego, I was wondering over the weekend. Since Slovakia didn't qualify do you follow the Czech Republic in the tournament? Excuse my ignorance and sorry if this is unintentionally insulting.>

    You are correct. I'll root for the Czechs as the "next best thing". Slovakia sucks at the moment. Glory teams of the fifties through the seventies are a remote memory.

    Cracking game. Van Nistelrooy is a beast. Hardly a touch in the game and fantifically converts a half chance!

    1-1... I can not believe how fast the Germans are... they played fast ball.

    <Germany will walk it.>

    I wouldn't be so sure. Qualification for the Euro is almost as murderous as for the WC. Everybody who is there can play. Look what the Greeks did to the host Portugal.

    >

    Just say non! >>>>

    ahem.... we certainly responded but didn't use "non"! It was quite amusing, there were at least 50 English guys on the street yelling back and gesticulating at the French. Some locals were walking past and asked, "what the hell is happening"! Watched the FSW roundup last night...even more sickening to see the replay. Heskey's foul was totally unnecessary and as for Gerrards pass...

    I always hope the Germans will lose (sorry Rob); difficulty comes when they play the French!
