It might have slightly more challenging had it been held in Sweden as originally planned. I still think the US would have dominated, but jet lag and no home audience (in as much as there was any audience) might have slowed them down a bit.Canada is probably the next best team and they dropped out.
Canton Ohio was a last minute replacement (well like six months, but that's pretty last minute for an event of this scale). The teams stayed in dorms at Walsh University, right behind our house.
My wife was running on campus and saw a French? player um..deflating his balls in a first floor dorm room without closing the blinds. I guess you could get lonely being on the road for three weeks.

Not smart enough to embed in my own post, but I salute the Police and Marvin Gaye.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Funk, Punk, and Hippies||
Grateful Dead-"Friend of the Devil." American Beauty and Workingman's Dead, the Dead's two best studio albums came out in 1970. Lots of Great Dead Shows from the seventies, including 12-8-73, possibly the only good thing to ever come out of Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Marvin Gaye "What's Going On?" also a great album.
Isaac Hayes "Theme from Shaft" Great Soundtrack overall.
P-Funk "We Want the Funk." I greatly regret that I was too young to go to the Silverdome when the Mothership touched down in 1978.
The Sex Pistols kind of suck, but paved the way for lots of great late punk/New wave stuff in the late 1970s.
The Police "Can't Stand Losing You."
Elvis Costello "Alison"

Or perhaps under a bridge.

Carter had a better overall career at Michigan. Howard had one amazing season and a second good year and if you want a Brady jersey, get a Patriots one.

at the RC in 1990. He is a great artist.

I wanted to name our first dog Montgomery George Orwell Blue, but my wife prevailed upon me and we named him just Blue. He was joined by a sister doggie, Maize (Maizey) in Spring 2013, but Blue sadly had to be put to sleep this past March.

He is at DII Walsh University in Canton, OH, not far from Massillon. Has yet to get on the field--this fall might be his last chance.
Jerald Robinson is also on Walsh's team.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Justin Turner and Jerald Robinson||
Justin Turner and Jerald Robinson are both planning to play at DII Walsh University, in North Canton Ohio. Don't know/can't say anything about any pending issues, academic or otherwise.
Walsh's new coach is Ted Karras, nephew of Lions' great (and Webster Dad) Alex Karras
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Justin Turner Sighting||
I don't have enough points to post this as a new thread.
I spoke with Justin today. He intends to play this fall at Walsh University in Canton, Ohio--just up the road from his hometown of Massillon.
Walsh used to be an NAIA school, but is now DII and in the GLIAC south division.
He apparently has two seasons of eligibility left in DII. My understanding is that the clock rule is different so he would only have one season in DI.
