Eurosnob! What about the African Cup qualifiers? I'm going to the Cameroon-Mauritius match on Saturday!

Wait, you mean ESPN3 won't be showing it? Too bad. I'm guessing I'll be easy to pick out of the crowd.

A link to Montenegro-Wales would be much appreciated. Not having any luck myself. Looks like kickoff in 40 minutes if my math is right.

My vibe is Branko with a brace.

Good weekend for football to kickoff...

I'm taking a break from Futbol this weekend and I'm gooing to watch football instead.

I'm starting to hate international dates. After watching that farce of a world cup, it's quite clear that international football just doesn't compare.

Queiroz banned for six months
The Portuguese Anti-doping Authority (AdoP) has suspended Portugal coach Carlos Queiroz for six months after ruling that he disrupted an anti-doping test before the World Cup.

Maybe you can watch Israel-Malta...

Posted by: Reignking | September 2, 2010 1:17 PM | Report abuse

Would that ban on Queiroz apply here? I'm sure Bradley could use an assistant. Not that he'd want to hire the guy who would replace him when things go wrong, but maybe the USSF could make its own demands.... I'm kidding, though this news makes me wonder if he should have been considered for the top job.

OT as well, but Guille Franco is looking for a team. If DC wants to put some fannies in the seats, they should find some DP money for him.

Uruguay has a team called "El Tanque" (The Tank)!?!?!?!?! I think that might top Arsenal and The Strongest as the most fiercesome team name in the world.

Eduardo Hurtado has his own team in Uruguay?

Or is it "Frank The Tank"???? "We're going streakingg!!!!"""

Perhaps they play drunk and in the nude...

Goff, small thing, but one of the two big teams from the Brazilian city Belo Horizonte is know as "Atletico Mineiro", not just "Mineiro" (which means "from the state of Minas Gerais"). The team goes by Atletico, but there are other Atleticos in Brazil, most notably Atletico Paranaense from Curitiba.

The Wiz should be on that list.

When UEFA moved the Euro qualifying games from Saturday to Friday, they didn't consult with American fans stuck at work on Friday afternoon who would otherwise watch the games on a Saturday afternoon. Damn you, Platini & Co.

Did somebody mention streaking?

Oh yes they call him The Streak (boogity boogity)
Fastest thing on two feet (boogity boogity)

He'll be streaking around

Besides ESPN, there are 2 other sources where you can watch Euro matches; One is SeeTVPC.com and the other is LiveTVworldwide.com
Hope this was helpful. Good luck guys!

Just out of curiosity, Steven, why don't you always post the ESPN3.com matches? Anyone with $10 to spare on the right cable can connect the laptop to the tele and a get a very good picture on the big screen. For many of us who don't receive GolTV, Telefutura, Telemundo, ESPNDeportes, or FSE this is much more pertinent programming information. Again, not a big deal, just curious.

If we don't win another game this season, was there really a point to firing Onalfo? Under that same reasoning, they should fire Ben Olsen too...What were the expectations for Olsen? Win two - three games?

We'll be watching the Washington FREEDOM get closer to the playoffs and get 3 more points by defeating the Red Stars. GO FREEDOM!!

Thanks for the link. I thought the reference to NCAA soccer's 50-year history was a bit silly. Although the NCAA has sponsored a championship tournament since 1959, the game has been played on college campuses since Rutgers met Princeton in 1869 (a match that, for some reason, throwballers have appropriated as part of their history). Would Kroll say that NCAA Division I-A throwball has no history, because there has never been an NCAA-organized championship tournament?

Incidentally, before 1959, there were unofficial national champions, just as there are today in throwball, based on coaches' polls and such.
