My hopes to see Jermaine Jones and Charlie Davies in New York are starting to seem halfway possible. Davies played in Sochaux's first preseason friendly today.

Steve: Any photos of Flat Sharkie at the match?

Is anyone else starting to seriously wonder how that octopus is doing it?

Wow, I've only missed two picks in the soccer knockout bracket.

Spain really dominated, but Iniesta frustrates the bejeezus out of me. Ever hear of a wall pass? Or a shot?

Loved Pedro until he blew that breakaway.

Can't believe Germany gave up a corner to Spain -- but I saw Puyol charging through and knew he had it.

yeah the octopus is weird . . .

well-deserved victory, cleanly played match with great skill and very little histrionics.

"Loved Pedro until he blew that breakaway."

Peter needs to be smacked upside the head for that selfish play.

Well done, lads. Beautiful story.

And more props for excellent coverage of the tournament in 2010. Not so much for the "extras" like Gullit and the Scot and Lalas, etc, but the regular vets like Fowler, Ley and Tirico were spot on solid!

Sounders up 2-0 on the Gals...Don't really like the British commentator that just can't keep the player Mike Seamon's name out of his mouth... ugh...
Sounders in their "electricity" kit. Remember when I used to ramble on a bout a third kit? Ha.
Jaqua looking for a hat trick.

It's Sea-Man!

delantero, I think he was actually trying to get the pass off, but the lane wasn't there. When he tried a move to open it up, he messed up.

Yeah. Gerd Mu"ller should be the assistant coach for finishing. With 62 caps, he scored 68 goals. I was somewhat surprised that Zidane was not interviewed. Petit's goal was nice, but it was sprinkles on the icing on the cake.

With their lineup yesterday, Spain had 7 Barcelona players in its starting lineup. Puyol, Pique, Busquets, Villa, Iniesta, Xavi & Pedro. If you add Messi, Victor V. and Dani Alves to that group its simply not fair. Especially if they pry Fabregas away from Arsenal, not that I know where you would play him...

OK, I'm sure I'm being very dim, but why is this entry tagged for *Scotland* and Spain and not Germany?

perhaps Bonesteel's been nipping into the Scotch at work again.

I hope it's single malt and not that blended paint-thinner.
