USA wins 17-0 over Colombia!

But the shocker ... Finland over Australia 17-7!

Ryan said...

Hmm ... looks like score-o-matic got the Australia-Finland score switched.

So how exactly did this Brian Cook guy land this photo gig? What is he shooting with, a camera phone?

Haha, yeah for real. It's called a mega pixel, heard of it?

I googled alex peters to find out why he is so bitter and nasty and it turns out that he is an ultimate photographer with his own website. At least before you go after the new kid on the block, you could issue a disclaimer that you are also involved in the business. Cheap shot.

I'm pretty sure most frequenters of this blog and RSD already know that.

It's pretty well known that I'm bitter and nasty.

Alex Peters said...

I also just have to point out that he left that comment anonymously, lol.

Ryan said...

Soooo, USA over Canada easily. *yawn*

Kevin said...

Not a yawn if you saw that game. Most intense juniors game I've ever seen. If Canada doesn't get the butter fingers it is a much, much closer game

Ryan said...

Why did the US play so much zone? Everyone knows zone is what you play when you can't match up man-to-man with a team.

Someone from the US team probably hates kittens.

Kevin said...

The US plays so much zone because more often than not it generates a quick turnover and thus allows them to rest.

Ryan said...

Yes, because 18 good players get so tired from winning 17-0 that they need to rest during points instead of on the sidelines. Besides, quick turns give you *less* rest (if you've subbed out for a point or two, like you're supposed to when you're tired and have capable subs).

Kevin said...

Oh right, cause you're the one on the team that has played 4 hours of frisbee a day in the 85 degree heat for the last 9 days.

Please stop talking about things you have no clue about.

Ryan said...

Sorry, I've only played soccer for seven hours a day for a week in 90 degree heat and 90% humidity, not ultimate, so I must have no idea what I'm talking about.

All I'm saying is that the reason Team USA is playing zone is absolutely not because it gives them "a rest."
