France vs. Ukraine just started.
England vs. Sweden coming up.
Allez les Bleus!
and Sweden because...you know...John Terry.
And, France vs. Sweden suspended because of lightning in the 5th minute
It's France vs. Ukraine.
My bad, as i was typing they were talking about the possibilities of the England game being postponed along with this one and i just typed the country i heard
That is an absolute ton of rain, can't fault the refs for stopping play. I do wish they had kept playing though, it was fun to watch the players sliding around like that lol. As someone who stayed through the Western game last year, I know just how much fun the fans must be having right now.
Western game was amazing. Most fun I've had at a game other than OSU.
But dude, that storm is dangerous.
First time I see a game of this importance suspended, it is a ton of water, I guess as soon as the lightnings stop they will resume the game, even if the rain hasn't stopped, unless of course the ball cannot roll in those puddles
They might abandon the game if the pitch gets too waterlogged. Will likely depend on what type of drainage system is installed beneath the surface. Not the best option but that's a shit ton of rain.
That ain't sunlight, my friends.
It looks like the mothership is trying to beam-up the whole stadium
The field in my home town was water logged so bad once that a helicopter was called in to get the water off the field so a huge youth tournament could continue.
Looks like they're getting started now.
France looked good against England, they deserved to win that game. I'm interested to see if Ukrane is legit.
don't have a lot of hope for them. Regarding John Terry, is there any actual proof against him besides Ferdinand?
he did bang his teammates wife... which establishes his character as ultra sleezball
Didn't he also mock American tourists on 9/11?
It's obviously been crazy here and on everywhere. I was at a ''club'' for the England-France game last Monday where it was on a projector....about 200 people watching it. It was pretty crazy as there was some France fans watching it there. For the England game in a couple of hours, I will be trying to find more of a traditional pub to go to. Anyways, I am hopping on the England bandwagon while I'm here sort of. Hope Croatia wins it all, though.
That I was LMFAO at some of those Euros trying to do the Doug E. Fresh in the stands.
Made me think of buckling up and Kate.
Speaking of Soccer games... Is anyone going to any of the Friendlies in the US this summer?
There are a couple that I am really seriously considering getting tickets for...
I honestly was not a fan of soccer like 2 months ago, but I am legitimately obsessed right now...
I went to the US vs Argentina game at the Medowlands in Spring '11, and I must say I recommend it. Seeing international stars play is a GREAT experience live. Last summer I got to US v Canada in the Gold Cup as well, and despite being a lower level game, it was awesome.
There are no friendlies in the US this summer. All I saw was matches vs Jamaica and Guatemala and those occur in the fall.
There are a ton of friendlies between various club teams across the country, though...
Being in AA, games in Chicago and potentially Pitt will bet the closest...
AS Roma plays some Polish team at Wrigley, and the game i'd really like to see (if it actually happens) it AC Milan v Newcastle at Heinz Field
Laurent Blanc must have given some halftime speech. 2-0 France all of a sudden.
Now that Ireland is out I'm throwing my full support behind Denmark.
I'm also rooting for England because I think it would be funny if they actually exceeded their fans' expectations for once.
I would cheer for them, but the whole John Terry vs the Ferdinands and Englands role in that makes it impossible for me to cheer for them. Just too damn racist for me.
Man, the Ukraine is weak.
i cannot get used to the repeated seven nation army chants going on during this tournament.
but the organizers are playing it over the loudspeakers after every goal.
Did anyone notice the exchange between the Swedish dude with the pony tail and England's goalie after the goal?
its all in the hair.
The march toward musical empire began on Oct. 22, 2003, in a bar in Milan, Italy, 4,300 miles away from Detroit. Fans of Club Brugge K.V., in town for their team's group-stage UEFA Champions League clash against European giant A.C. Milan, gathered to knock back some pre-match beers. Over a stereo blared seven notes: Da...da-DA-da da DAAH DAAH, the signature riff of a minor American hit song....
So Dave Brandon didn't create this amazing song just for Michigan fans to hear at least ten times a game? Darn, I thought he had finally created a really wonderful 6 or 7 year old "tradition". Hell, maybe he'll kidnap the Wisconsin badger mascot next and dress it in Maize and Blue, very few people know what a Wolverine really looks like. Those mascots a God-awful representations anyways.
Welbeck's goal was beautiful Great setup and finish
