Just a programming note for any soccer fans who were bummed they didn't get to see the team's amazing performance against Poland (http://youtube.com/watch?v=_DgOkYb01ZI) on ESPNU (let's not mention the horrible South Korea game). The game will be simulcast on ESPN and the U at 6:30 PM central time.

Group D Standings (through July 5th)
Pos. Tm W-D-L F-A (DIF) Pts
1. USA 1-1-0 7-2 (+5) 4
2. Brazil 1-0-1 3-3 (0) 3
3. Poland 1-0-1 2-6 (-4) 3
4. Korea Rep. 0-1-1 3-4 (-1) 1

Practically speaking, the US would have to experience a massive meltdown in order to fail to qualify for the next round, but this is a really interesting test. The US had a tough time against South Korea, being unbelievably lucky to scratch out a draw, while Brazil stuck it to them until the Koreans began applying a ton of pressure in the last ten minutes. Against Poland, on the other hand, Brazil failed to capitalize on a man advantage for around 70 minutes and lost 1-0, while the slowly grew into the game and absolutely ripped the Poles to shreds with stunning goals and total domination.

Moral of the story? Youth teams can be brilliant or completely disappear. We'll see what happens tonight.

Sounds good. I know a lot of people on here like to make fun of soccer. :rolleyes: As far as I'm concerned, it is the only sport that is worth watching this time of year.

How's the U-20 action matching up?
I've been aware of the tourney, but haven't been DVRing it in favor of Copa Oro and MLS offerings.
There's only so many hours in a day. And only so many hours I can devote to staring at a TV while two guys are blabbering Spanish at a million miles an hour.

First in with the "Soccer Sucks!" comment.


















Not that I think that. I just know someone is going to say it, so I wanted to be the first. :p

What, are you Korean? No, but I eat a lot of Bulgogi and enjoy the competitive game of Starcraft once in a while...

did USA get knocked outta the Copa America already?3 and out. That's what you get with a lineup stripped by the need to fill the Gold Cup and U-20 rosters. As disappointing as it was, in the end, we put our eggs in the right baskets. Wish we'd played the new hotness of Guzano more instead of the old and busted Keller, but whatever. At least we know Keller's done, Gaven's still crap, Conrad's still a great stopper, and Feilhaber, Clark, Bornstein, and DeMerit are for real.

Are you sure? My DVR schedule says otherwise, but it could be (and has been) wrong. If you say so, I'll set the DVR manually.

I think it was originally scheduled for ESPNU. If it was a late programming change your provider probably didn't push the new info to your DVR. Seems to happen sometimes with my DTV.

ESPN's online guide is showing it as being on ESPN, though.

There's no level of optic dysfunction that'd justify THAT missed call.

Great game. Thanks to Ultra Peanut for the thread - my cable directory had the hot dog eating contest on the schedule, so I wouldn't have tuned in otherwise.
