:-) I think that's one of Steve's subtle opinion messages...

All the orange are doing well this year:

Syracuse are #1
Area previously known as the Republic of the Orange Free State has the world cup this summer
Orange County.. thats all I can say about that
Netherlands will beat the US
My roommate has a spray tan
The orange juice I had this morning was superb

People in Amsterdam are already out in their orange well before game time. 4 hours to gametime - gonna be fun. Let's go USA!

Dunno how the Yanks'll do, but I kinda like their new jerseys:

Ok that was semi-coherent at best, but you get the idea.

Oranje 4 - Uncle Sam 1

It's gonna be ugly.

I have dear friends in Eindhoven. I proposed the following bet: Winners buy losers a bottle of wine. I fear I'm going to enjoy that wine more than I enjoy the game.

C'mon guys - it's Oranje.

wnt scores! up 1-0 on Germany.

Posted by: troy6 | March 3, 2010 11:20 AM | Report abuse

I like the jerseys, too. There's plenty of room on the sash for all your merit badges.

Posted by: dccal | March 3, 2010 11:23 AM | Report abuse

and now it's 2-0...

Posted by: troy6 | March 3, 2010 11:27 AM | Report abuse

If we can make them play defense, it will certainly improve the odds. If all we do is try to deal with Sneijder passing endlessly to Robben, Kuyt, and Huntelaar, the game will be beyond our means. We need three players constantly running at them.

Posted by: UnitedDemon | March 3, 2010 11:42 AM | Report abuse

Germans pull one back and head into the half down 2-1. Sounds like a good game.

Prinz at def mid. Roughly equivalent to having Abby Wambach play there.

remember that brazilian goal goff posted this morning? all the irish sitting back and allowing the brazilians to pass back and forth ten yards outside the box? that's what I fear happening against the dutch. we'll let them develop plays. sure hope I'm wrong...

I like to think we have a hell of a lot of players on the roster that because of whatever reason (longterm injuries, lackluster previous performances, youth) have a lot of reason to play their heart out tonight.

Priceless. Garber wants EPL to invest in MLS. Where would the world's largest debtor league/teams get funds for that?

More "investment" = more debt. Maybe Garber should run for the US Senate.

Is everyone in the world looking for a handout? "Where are the strong, who are the trusted"?

Oh wait, it gets better. Portsmouth is offering its fans financial advice.

You can't make this stuff up.

I'm usually a very negative (albeit passionate) US Nat fan. But, with more of our guys doing well in Europe, I'm rather optimistic about our chances these days.

OWNTF: I think it's a little different comparing EPL debt with government debt. Apples and oranjes.

3:2 final in Algarve

(Lloyd, Wambach, Cheney)

Posted by: OWNTF | March 3, 2010 12:52 PM | Report abuse

USA wins first of the day. WNT wins Prestigious Cup 3-2 over Germany. Hope that rubs off on the fellas.

Posted by: troy6 | March 3, 2010 12:52 PM | Report abuse

YAY!!! U.S. Women are champions! 3-2 over Germany in the Algarve Cup in Portugal today. Congratulations ladies, well earned.

unintentional comedy on the matchtracker as they typed "foul called on US" at 90+3 and then the coverage went to PKs (tourny rules mandate immediate PKs following regular time of a tied game). While I was letting out a howl that attracted attention throughout the office, the matchtracker said, "woopsie! game over, US win"

Posted by: troy6 | March 3, 2010 12:58 PM | Report abuse

US will win 3-2... Mark my words.
