Damn I had no idea the conference final was at 11. At least it won't interrupt most of my other television habits.

Brazil-England and Spain-Argentina is a nice one-two punch, even if they're friendlies. I'm not paying for Ireland-France, and is Portugal worth watching without Ronaldo? If Costa Rica-Uruguay was free, I'd choose it over the MLS game.

You can stay up after and watch NZ-Bahrain.

Bharaining outside at the moment.

Also, Big Ten Tournament on all weekend on Big Ten Network. Games start with semifinals Friday at 2:00 pm.

My line-up on Saturday...
Brazil-England, Argentina-Spain, DVRing Italy-Netherlands and watching the delayed Portugal-Bosnia @ 8 p.m.

Portugal has quality besides Ronaldo and it would be a true shock if they are left out of the WC.

At a wedding (not an Irish bar) right at Ireland-France kickoff time. :-(

NCAA Division III men's second round match at Messiah on Sunday.

Posted by: joedoc1 | November 12, 2009 4:05 PM | Report abuse

Messiah has returned to the playoffs?

Too bad the Egypt-Algeria game isn't televised. The violence has already started as the Algeria team bus was attacked with rocks in Egypt and 3 players were injured.

Who's Messiah playing? Will the Falcons Handel them?

A reason to get up Saturday morning...

MLS game on 11 pm Friday night. No doubt that game will pull in monster national ratings.

Posted by: Ron16 | November 12, 2009 4:51 PM | Report abuse

Way to go MLS - after 3 years you finally get Beckham and Donovan in the Conference final - and you put them on at 11 pm. Brilliant!

I detect a bit of Atlantocentrism.

Posted by: universityandpark | November 12, 2009 5:08 PM | Report abuse

harkes4ever, it was either that, or play in front of an empty stadium (12k max on school nights) on Thursday night or be moved to ESPN Classic at an earlier time since there is a college football game earlier on Friday night.

"Messiah has returned to the playoffs?"

=========================

That's a yellow for persistent infringment. (Points around the pitch, counting...)

Give him a straight red... carryover from other matches.

Posted by: joedoc1 | November 12, 2009 5:33 PM | Report abuse

The second leg of a Bahrainian home and away set is always exciting, based on my sample of one. I'll have the world cup playoffs on in the background while I do other stuff.

Will Costa Rica-Uruguay be available on a delay anywhere? Sigh.

(...and that's the decidedly non-historically-informed-performance, early Sixties-vintage recording of the Hallelujah Chorus, by the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, too. Just in case you more musically-inclined types were wondering.)

Skip the wedding. Tell them you'll go to their next weddings.

I was just checking my program guide for the Western Conference Final and it was just now that I came back to look at SI again that I realized the game is tomorrow...

Guess I should have checked this thread before making the "whack-on-whack" comment on the Preki thread.

I'll be watching USA-Slovakia. I wonder if FSC will call the match from the studio.

@CACuzcatlan - Word, that game is going to be ill. Algeria has a little cushion, it can lose by one and still qualify. Even an Egyptian two goal win will only even things up for them to have a playoff in Sudan later! I'm still not sure how Egypt has managed to underperform so badly in qualifying... I mean, they beat Italy in the Confed Cup and are close to being knocked out by Algeria, whose FA is still in rebuilding mode following the civil war!

L.A. traffic is so outrageous on a Friday evening--if you've ever lived there, you'd understand why they're starting it at 8PM.

It's virtually impossible to get south on I-5 at that hour.

watching african qualifying on the internet. tunisa and nigeria games i think are at 8am and egypt-algeria at 1230. cameroon game will be huge too after how they messed up 2006 qualifying on the final day

Posted by: GraciasRiquelme | November 13, 2009 9:57 PM | Report abuse

Watched the Egypt-Algeria game online. Wow. Just wow. Egypt scoring in stoppage time, 90+5 to make it 2-0 and take it to a playoff. It will be crazy in Sudan. Can't wait!
