    World Cup

    USA ties Slovenia 3-2!

    Seriously, that goal should have been ours. Lots of people upset with that referee for his inconsistent calls during the game.

    Who cares?

    Pro sports is the modern-day bread and circuses; veneration of athletes over matters of substance. A method of distracting the mob and dissipating the energy - the outrage - that would otherwise be focused on our politicians and the ruin they create.

    Instead, the masses get fatter and more stupid with each passing season, rooting for "their" team... because it's so important that "we" win.

    I thought that goal should of counted too. A goal is such a rare gem in soccer they all should count. Eric some people see the challenges and beauty in sports. In my humble opinion sports is a good thing to have in our lives. Everybody in Chicago is wearing a Blackhawk jersey. Aw shucks Way to Go BLACKHAWKS!!

    I didn't see it, but opinion in the British press seems to be that it was a legitimate goal. As things stand at the moment that refereeing mistake could mean England going through to the next stage at the expense of the USA - the way England have played so far, that would be a gross injustice!
