History of MLS Cup 6 p.m. ESPN Classic

I'm all over this. Keep up the great work Mr. Goff.

Reds and the Blues. Red Devils and Toffees. I was going to watch the Desert Dogs, but the game loses its appeal since Strasburg hurt his knee -- so, I get a break after that. I might DVR Hull-West Ham, to watch if Jozy and Jon play.

Beach World Cup? Does anyone actually watch that? I could probably say the same about MLS Cup -- what percentage of casual MLS watchers even know when it's on?

So Henry convienently waits until right after FIFA rejects Ireland's appeal to have the game replayed to release this statement: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/11/20/AR2009112001513.html

Anybody know of a bar that's showing the Rubin Kazan-Zenit match from Russia on Saturday? : )

Anyone know of a bar that's open at 6 am?

The old dive I drank at in college opened at 5am for the third shifters at nearby factories - that was a good time. Sadly it's in Cincinnati, OH... and has been bulldozed.

Might be the worst Sunday line-up I've seen in years!

Monday, I'll be watching...

2:45PM
Football League
Preston North End vs. Newcastle United

Ahh Cincy, a bar and a hooker on every corner.

@rademaar -- Ummm...you think FIFA's decision would be different if he'd called for a replay sooner? He already acknowledged it should have been called a handball foul. As I noted in previous thread, you can't make an exception an order a replay of this match. That's a Pandora's Box, considering how many games may turn on bad calls.

What fans can hope for is that Henry's handball -- coming as it did at such a pivotal moment in such a crucial game -- will have the same impact that the wrongly denied touchdown pass from Pastorini to Renfro in the '79 AFC championship game had for football. For those too young to remember, no sport used instant replay review at the time. Afterwards, the NFL admitted that the Oilers (I miss that team, even though their lunatic owner is still at it in Tennesee) were wrongly deprived of the TD, which might have changed the outcome of the game. The league responded by instituting a replay system.

The NFL system has been changed several times over the years. Those that claim there is no perfect plan for replay in soccer are letting the perfect be the enemy of the good. FIFA needs to start experimenting with replay immediately -- have something in place with at least one league in January....or maybe in the MLS in March. The problem I see with MLS is that television coverage is not locked in for all games, making good replay coverage problematic -- but the USA would be a good place to give replay a test run.

@fischy- I never called for a replay in my post, its simply not possible as everyone already knows. I just think Henry should have come out with a formal statement sooner (like right after the game), or none at all instead of minutes after FIFA rejected Ireland's appeal.

This bar in Seattle never closes and serves breakfast 24 hours as well. I checked on the Tune Inn in DC but they don't open till 8...

Economy is bad. Bars are closed.

Liverpool-Manchester City is an important game. Liverpool might not even get a UEFA Cup spot if their slide continues and City needs the win if it wants that top four finish and a Champions League spot. I'll watch live.

Rubin clinch their second straight Russian championship with a win!

And was American football the first sport to use reply or just the first American sport to do so? I would guess it was, but I don't know when rugby and cricket started using replay, and don't know what other sports do.

What am I watching tomorrow? My intended game isn't on that list, but that's because it's a college pointythrowball game: Ohio State at M*ch*g*n, ABC, noon.

Sunday though? Bring on Galaxy-RSL.
