Argentina vs. Mexico in World Cup round of 16

Two possible results for Argentina vs. Mexico:

1.) Argentina wins, and Coach Diego Maradona says something outrageous.


2.) Argentina loses, and Coach Diego Maradona says something fantastically outrageous.

Mexico (1-1-1), which finished second in Group A, faces a tall order against and Albicelestes team that won all three of its Group B games by a combined 7-1.

Argentina, Tevez with the goal. The assistant referee gets it all wrong again.

Higuain for Argentina, a gift from Mexico.

The goal scorer was 2 to 2 1/2 yds off side. Can't they admit they are wrong. FIFA needs to get new refs, linesmen, and train them. This lot sucks. England had one 2 yds inside the net and no goal. All are getting hosed. Who have they picked out to win the competition. I might just wait for the last game. I hope they don't hose Uruguay just to let Ghana win another one. Right now, they seem like they might.

fedsoccer, can't you just plug your old coaxial cable into the tv and get ABC? They couldn't have completely removed your og cable could they have?

i don't have a tuner other than my stb. I use a big Panasonic plasma monitor that doesn't have a tuner. So no ABC. But I am watching Univision's live stream now

Ian Darke's linguistic skill or John Harke's remedial english?

Tevez's goal:

"That was excellent . . . . That is . . . . wow {extended pause} . . . . lethal."

Harksey wisdom:

"Big teams in big situations need plays from big players."

Big TV's need Big Tuners for Big Games...;)
Nice to get these ABC games in HD, because I'm watching everything else on Univision/Telawhatever due to the fact I don't get my ESPN's in HD due to my lack of a "big tuner"... Don't mind watching in Spanish as it's not nearly as irritating as Harkes.

Who the heck was calling the Flounders/Pee Yeeew game today?
Harkes replacement is much worse than the man himself.
Can't stand all the "when I played with so-and-so".
