    Sadly Serbia just made a goal so your boys will have to run a bit harder.........
    But they are by far the nicest team to look at at the beginning of each match! The way the hold each others shoulder with the left hand, holding the right hand to their hearts and singing the national anthem - it just gives me the goosebumps ever time

    will keep my fingers crossed

    Soccer is getting bigger here. Most of the kids play around here now, where they didn't in the past. I didn't know anyone here who watched the game on tv until the last few years. I think its growing on us!

    soccer, soccer - that's the sport where guys in shorts run around on a field kicking a ball, right? ;)

    I don't follow the sport, but some of those guys sure are cute.

    No, but apparently the senior VP and a bunch of people are watching in a conference room - a whole lot of shouting went on and I had to go see what all the hubbub was about. The director of HR was in there, too, not looking too pleased, but he can't tell the VP what to do :roll:

    (and I don't feel one bit guilty about being here right now on the board :-P :P )

    lt was really a bloody shame: the referee stole your team the victory by annuling a regular goal!!
    At least you won one point, but it would have been a sensation winning the match

    Well, I actually live in the USA, but I have certain teams I am cheering on and Germany was my #1. It has been for the last 3 world cups!

    Ireland didn't make the World Cup so I'm not really watching. My family and neighbours are though, and are delighted to see France losing as they're the ones who kept us out!

    We're very into the World Cup here. My husband is a big soccer nut and has played for many years. We're very upset with the recent bru-ha-ha of the bad call against the US.

    Many Germans are so arrogant that they think the trophy should just be handed to the German team. It would be fun to watch a game where they lose. I'd have to cheer. lol

    So you should have watched today serbia beating the german team...... I just loved it :oops:
    We have a saying: soccer is a game where 22 men are running behind a ball and at the end the germans are winning!?

    no, no problems at all. Besides a couple of people that dont even need a reason to fight.
    It is just this nice content feeling of somebody getting what they deserve :oops:
