When we retake the colonies, you will all be forced to watch Test Cricket, without access to firearms.

So there.

You may find that whole "without access to firearms" thing a wee bit more challenging when you get a firsthand look at the geography and demographics of your newly reacquainted territory...

Well, we'd have to subdue the populace first, using prolonged exposure to Radio 4 and episodes of Coronation Street. After that it would be a doddle. Smile

The best part about sports is anything can happen. Rough bracket for the USA, though.

I wouldn't.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Wouldn't go 10-1, or wouldn't give him odds on it happening at all?

I wouldn't offer odds on something I knew nothing about such as the USA football team. I think England have got it to do to get out the first group and I would guess about evens at best doing that.

Very Intriguing post Ray. Just what does it mean? I mean it was posed as a question not a statement. What does it mean?
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

Yeah, if that. Let's see how we do against Italy on Saturday. If we concede early on they'll just park a couple of buses, and we don't have the brilliance to bust through that sort of defence. *sigh*

Lots of unexpected results, Netherlands 5 Spain 1, CR 3 Urguay 1, the most bored game England Italy, very entertaining Ivory Coast and Japan. Today Argentina will play 5-3-2, weird when we have maybe the most skilled forwards, I think the Coach wants to be more than cautious.

Holy cow did Spain take it on the chin!
Italy looked VERY good against England. (Sorry Brits.)

Spain has a fairly easy road through the rest of the group. We will see if they show up and Costa actually plays a worthwhile game.

The Spain result didn't go down very well over here, in fact nobody even talks about it. Almost like it didn't happen.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

Looking like it would have been a great bet...USA beats Ghana and Pepe will be out for Portugal against them after being red-carded in the opener.

USA got the win vs. a team they couldn't keep possession from in a Ghana team of faster athletes. For me, it was a very frustrating game that had a great beginning and a great ending, but in between was an exercise in, "Here Ghana, you take the ball..." Hope that changes, but have to admit I'd rather have wins than run of play. Just don't see USA going far if that continues.

All I know is the USA won their first round game and Spain didn't. Makes those Skype calls to the inlaws just a bit more interesting. To be fair the USA game was not a replay of the final game from 4 years ago but no need to bring that up!

Great victory for the USA. Well done. Looks like it is going to be popular there as time goes by. Hope they do well as they give it everything and are good games to watch.
