That ball makes about 4 rotations over 35-40 yards. Can't hit it better than that.

Should've expected it: this link was in my clipboard to paste to the previous topic, but Goff beat me to it!

That was the first goal of the match, in the 92nd minute, and they won 3-0? What the heck happened in the remainder of extra time?

SG, according to US Soccer link in your post, it was OVERTIME, not extra time that they scored the 3 goals.

Overtime and extra time are synonymous, and are to be distinguished from stoppage time.

If Nathan Smith doesn't become the next Next, it's Bradley's fault.

@Jacob and Reignking: Did you see Steve during his visit to Atlanta?

As a former GSU student, I wanted to go to that game, but had no one to tag along. Had I realized the Goffinho himself would be in attendance, I might have gone and tried not to make it look stalker-ish.

GSU fired their coach, too. Not Rollie Massimino.

Anyone else visualizing the Red Stripe DJs in the announcer's both on this clip or is it just me?
