They’re Partying in Santa Monica, Weeping in San Pedro

At least I’m guessing that’s the case given the two communities are the epicenters of the English and Croatian ex-pat communities respectively in Southern California after England ‘s 5-1 win over Croatia today that earned them a World Cup berth.

All is not lost for the Croats, however, and England can help by beating Ukraine next month.

The Galaxy’s David Beckham played the irrelevant final 10 minutes in this one.

Game story.

All the scores.


Meanwhile, U.S. striker Jozy Altidore is getting amped for T&T. He just tweeted:

Walking into the locker room, its gametime baby. MUST get 3 points. Hit yall up after the game

    OK Nickster here’s one you can use, Golden Balls quoted on the BBC website regarding a rumour that he is going to play for Notts County in English League Two (which stands for two (or mavbe too) below MLS standard). County is now run by former England and Mexico Manager Sven Yawn Ericsson, and player managed by Sol Campbell.

    “Ha ha! No. I haven’t spoken to Sven for a while!”

    Maybe he’s been talking to Sol!!!
