I love how Kaka's hat-trick against Reggina is being celebrated like some massive achievement. Kind of pathetic. They are still in 5th position and bound for UEFA Cup mediocrity. Del Piero on the other hand, good for him nice to see an older player proving his worth week in and week out. Also props to Onyewu as I am sure his play had a huge influence on their form this season, wonder if he will leave in the summer?

Looks like Gooch deserves credit on the build up to the second goal (see video at 1:10). Really good to see him return to form with a championship side after last season's disappointments with the Newcastle Circus.

Did anyone catch Real Maryland in the rain Sunday? I saw they lost but wondered about turn-out and atmosphere, given the monsoon.

I found the first Juventes goal interesting. Normally teams try to bend those free kicks behind the defenders, into the space of runners. On this goal, the kick looked to be behind the RUNNERS, so the defenders couldn't reach it. Bang! Header into the net.

So Pato (18 years old) is going to spend the next 5 years of his career getting tutored by Kaka (25 y/o). Yikes... Should we just give Brazil the next 3 World Cups to save us all the trouble?

wrc, who cares what place they are in, or even if 2 of the 3 goals came from PKs? It's a hat trick!

Pato, just like Kaká, will have to earn his World Cup championships.

Well, maybe not...Kaká won a World Cup with Brazil in Korea but he didn't see much time.

As for Germany, 1 goal doesn't get you far in that tournament.
