World Cup Talk, Part II

Argentina celebrate victory in the shoot-out.

Well, that was a match no one will remember. Except for the Argentina fans thrilled to advance to the final against Germany. Let’s hope Sunday’s game is better than this game. And who will win the all-important third-place game between Netherlands and Brazil? Hard to believe that game still exists.

    Why is the player on the far left running around with a tampon in his mouth?…..

      Well you since noticed what no one else did – why not tell us.

  • rusoviet

    Good luck ‘argies’ – the ‘huns’ are waiting for you –

    Hey word is the over/unders on >40K for Sunday’s final is 5:20

    Back to ‘MLB’ and the only All Star Game – MLB next Tuesday from Minneapolis-MN that has any relevance or legacy.

    When will ‘brooklyn’s’ ‘vin-dawg chevrolet – aka ‘de skull’ going to give it up? – bluntly – never this egomaniac knows too well when you’re not ‘there’ you truly are not there – ha cha cha cha cha cha cha – vin-dawg chevrolet

      What is your opinion of our announcer Pete Arbogast?

      • rusoviet

        Arbogast is awful – he truly is – reminds one of that clown who annouces the Angels MLB games Terry Smith – i.e. as is ‘How do you do…’ for Arbogast so is ‘”…and it’s outta here!” for Smith – canned mediocrity both of them.

        Many rag on Petros Papadakis but before he got his gig with that clown-a$$ Matt ‘Howdy Doodie’ Smith something ugly went down btwn. Petros and Pete and from what I sense it wasn’t on ‘Pete’.

        I like Chris Roberts with UCLA and hey since he’s announced he’s retiring from the Brins I’d love to have him announce for USC.

        he best was Tom Kelley – bar none the best – Arbogast came in on his daddy’s coat tails – just listen to his ‘from the heights of Los Feliz where I am to you scullions on the plains ‘a’ how do you do ” ask yourself what individual who had ever seen 10% of what the vast majority of people on this planet would ever embrace that ‘h0m0′ sounding ‘…how do you do’ unless they were going to where ‘Pete’ goes ‘Bristol Farms’….

        Why not Ian Eagle? – Arborgast is a buffoon. He truly is the rear end of a horse backing out of a barn….

            Actually, I am more engaged as a listener/reader.

          • rusoviet

            Oh I see you’re one of those ‘…I like to watch…’

            Ohhhh you need to engage and raise your personal sacrifice to the heights of (you know the WEHO drill) – arrrggghhhhh!!!!!

            Get in the game sailor….ride captain ride….(no I don’t mean ‘Sally’ either).

        • UCLA owns LA Football

          The two best football announcers I ever heard: 1) Bob Kelley, the gravelly voice LA Rams radio P by P; 2) Ray Scott, who did many CBS Green Bay Packer games – “Starr; McGee; Touchdown”: Sublime P by P.

    I agree with Wolf on the ridiculousness of the third place game.

    With the size of the loss, I wonder if Brazil will fire their coach but ask him to coach this last game…..

    • WEB_Dupree

      Clay Helton might be available.

      • TrojanFamily

        Neuheisel is too

        • WEB_Dupree

          Clay Helton has experience winning as an interim coach in a team’s final game of the season, was my point/joke.

      • gotroy22

        Ed’s available.

  • john wolcott

    Come on, I know best announcers is a very subjective topic, but Arbogast is a pretty good announcer as long as you are an SC fan because he is an unabashed homer

    But speaking of which, that guy who announces SUCLA’s games is the worst of the worst i.e. And ucla scores ANOTHER field goal. This is the greatest game ucla guard Yura Selfie has had in his long illustrious career of 2 years.

    Now, Tom Kelley was the real deal, but he was a homer too. But that voice was one of the greatest.
