I hope John and Judah didn't spill their bong water on the first lady.

John Harkes is out of the ESPN World Cup coverage. That makes sense - he's too bland and his sentences come out wrong as well.

LOL. Yeah, it's his blandness, and not the fact that he's a scum bag that has come to light...

"John Harkes is out of the ESPN World Cup coverage"

Oh! Oh! It's so easy, so I give in to temptation? Absolutely, JP!!

So, did Johnny sleep with the wrong person's wife again?

"Absolutely, JP"

And, how did this come to light? Perhaps Mrs. Dellacamera started saying "absolutely" all the time?

or maybe it was his complete lack of awareness when Holden had his leg broken on a clearly red cardable tackle. Harkes missed the replay and glossed over the whole situation.

I hope this means Harkes doesn't start doing United coverage. I like Limarzi.

Kudos for US Soccer Foundation for supporting the Lets Move initiative. Any way to involve non-suburban populations to take up the game is positive. Obviously its a PR move but the game lends itself nicely to some of the objectives of the program.

@DadRyan - that's interesting that you refer to things coming to light in 2010 becasue I remember you and others saying that in 1998 it was well known that Harkes was is in the wrong because it was on the internet. So based on your logic Harkes shouldn't have worked in the 2000s after rumors went on the internet. But he did.

I remember when everyone knew that the Duke lacrosse players were guilty, and then everyone knew that they were not guilty.

cr10 you're a vulgar cretin

Posted by: OWNTF | March 6, 2010 7:42 PM | Report abuse

a) I never said anything about what anyone was talking about on the internet about anything in 1998.
b) Harkes personal life has nothing to do with my opinion on his commentary.
c)Stop putting words in my mouth. I never suggested he should have lost any job for any reason. Those are your words.
d)Ironic sweeping generalization on the Duke LAX case.

While the adults pose, the kids don't have a clue.

I think there's an automated script that makes the comments area instantly go bonkers when 'Obama' appears on a page.

From FSC commentary on Everton-Hull after Piennar rolls it back for Arteta's goal

"beautifully crafted, (camera pans to a shot of who I imagine is Lorena Bernal, Arteta's significant other) . . . and I'm not just talking about her."

Disappointed to see Landon and Jozy not start . . but was to be expected.

Landy with a sweet goal and an assist in a 5-1 rout of overmatched Hull. He almost had a second assist, but Yukubu got under the ball and sky'd it.

An Everton sign read:

Landon, Landon
You Must Stay."

You can expect Harkes to land with DCU as at least a fill-in for the great Rongeni when the latter is n/a due to displaying his negatives of USSF officials that has enabled him to keep working all these years in spite of dismal performance. KP loves Harkes and if TR isn't watching his back he might lose his gig altogether. KP never had a problem with Harkes' shenanigans in 1997 re Mrs. Waldo. The team was winning and he didn't care as long as it didn't get out.
