Good time time to point out my rise to the top of the table again in the Insider Loyalists Fantasy League.

Normal service has resumed...

Is it technically fantasy if it's just a match predictor?
I'm bummed so few folks actually signed up for the FIFA.com fantasy league, you know you can still join the Argy Bargy Goff league if you're up for it.

OK, probably not Fantasy...mea culpa.

Yeah, I guess people could, and just pick players that haven't played yet?

Does Brazil score 10 today? That would be amazing to me.

The following comment appeared on one of yesterday's threads. There were several subsequent comments in that thread, but no one saw fit to remark on this contribution, which I am reproducing in its entirety:

On a side note, I am doing just terrible in the score predictor banaza for Insider Loyalists.

Posted by: grubbsbl | June 15, 2010 2:35 PM | Report abuse

I'm guessing folks can sign up still? It's not like people have ran away with anything quite yet. So many low scoring games, etc.
Thanks for reposting the link king.

Can we have captions for the Scottish announcer?

Is it me, or are every goalkeeper's punts going from 18 to 18?

I'm not sure whether anyone has already posted a link to this Steinbog contribution:

N. Korea has held Brazil scoreless for longer than we held England! :-)

Posted by: glfrazier | June 15, 2010 2:44 PM | Report abuse

In England, where soccer and English were invented, punting is a form of boating. So I don't know what you're talking about.

Nope, JoeDoc, it's...

Wait for it...

JABULANI!

Dunga in a Janet Jackson Rhythm Nation jacket (minus the epaulets).

If Brazil keep taking the ball back at the halfway line, they will never see fewer than 8 Koreans behind the ball.

Posted by: glfrazier | June 15, 2010 2:51 PM | Report abuse

That's "Miss Jackson" if you're nasty.

Wow. North Korea have brought "The People's Bus" with them to this one.

Posted by: Kosh2 | June 15, 2010 3:11 PM | Report abuse

How many North Koreans could DCU fit under the salary cap?

Posted by: Godfather_of_Goals | June 15, 2010 3:13 PM | Report abuse

Umm, so is Johannesburg really pronounced 'Yohannesburg' or is Glenn Davis (ESPN) just the world's biggest moron?

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm about to go 'yogging'

0-0 at half. Will Brasil score at all today? That would be amazing to me :)

Posted by: delantero | June 15, 2010 3:19 PM | Report abuse

this is the kind of frustrating game that awaits the US (and me) on friday (obviously, brazil > US and slovenia > north korea). how to break this "park the bus" strategy? hope our boys watched the germany v australia game...

Posted by: birdynumnum | June 15, 2010 3:21 PM | Report abuse

@birdynumnum - Spot on! The US must spread the field and control the middle. If ether was ever a game for Holden on the wing and Torres in the middle this would be it.

The Jabulani is in your court, Mr. Bradley.

Maybe Dear Leader is threatening Brazil with torpedoes.

Ironically, there is no-one on the DPRK team named Park.

Wow, the DPKR keeper can't blame the ball for that gaffe. Worst near post coverage, ever.

Posted by: delantero | June 15, 2010 3:42 PM | Report abuse

Shot or cross?

Posted by: JacobfromAtlanta-ish | June 15, 2010 3:44 PM | Report abuse

Doesn't matter if it's in the net.

Posted by: I-270Exit1 | June 15, 2010 3:46 PM | Report abuse

In the name of Hans Brixx, how did he let that one go in?

Posted by: Kosh2 | June 15, 2010 3:46 PM | Report abuse

Of course, we do need a neologism for the shot/cross. I suggest crot rather than shoss.

ESPN Stats & Info: So far in the tournament, defenders have outscored forwards 7-6. (Midfielders have the 8 remaining goals.)

I'm waiting for the DPRK to sub in their 3rd keeper.

The corollary is that the 21 goals have been scored by 21 different people, if I'm not mistaken. The race for the Golden Boot or whatever they call it has not yet gotten underway in earnest.

That. Was. Sublime.

I'd love to see Korea put a second one in the back of the net...

Posted by: DadRyan | June 15, 2010 4:16 PM | Report abuse

So, in North Korea, they won 1-0, right?

Posted by: Reignking | June 15, 2010 4:19 PM | Report abuse

You can see why ESPN dumped most of their American commentators to the radio or completely off of Cup coverage. Kyle Martino said that Maicon's goal was one of the best strikes he's seen in a long time. Really? Looked like pretty poor goaltending to me. Then Davis and Martino kind of downplayed the second goal - while Tyler and McCoist waxed poetic about it. Just kind of funny how people from different backgrounds see the game.

I think most goalies would have "cheated" on that first Brazilian goal. 90% credit goes to the strike, and 10% blame to the keeper. You have to gamble like that if you're playing a much better side.
