    How is Thailand doing in the World Cup Soccer tournament?

      Not bad. They have yet to lose

      What about Mexico, have they ever won it?

      • Juan Carlos

        Good question. I’m not sure.

        • Jethro G Sabbath

          I’ll answer it. No and no.

          • Juan Carlos

            Thank you. But why did you ask the question if you already knew the answer?

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            Because logic is not the norm here.

          • Juan Carlos

            I see. That is true.

            It was a rhetorical question.

          • Juan Carlos

            How do you know?

    Wrong blog!

      Wrong football team for you. Why don’t you tell us about that great UCSB-Cow Poly rivalry, CowPolyFan3.0?

    Latin America seems to have a distinct advantage. All Latino final four?

  • Jethro G Sabbath

    Why is it that only Latin American teams take the flop and act as if they have been shot when they have a lead in a game and running out the clock helps them?

    How can you have any pride when you resort to such feeble antics?

    • marvgoux1

      it’s not only Latin American players. Dwayne Wade flopped in the NBA Finals.

        We’re talking soccer here, Marv.

          The Euro players brought the soccer flop to the NBA.

      Why is it I only see white men begging at fwy offramps??

      No minorities, no women. Where’s the pride?

    Italy has some good players too though it was a rough day for them, that was a good fight anyway.
