    Some of the celebrations were excessive, particularly for players who have been there before.

    Then again, Barry Sanders was one of my favorite players, and I tell my own children not to act like they just scored a goal in the World Cup, so I am neither objective in my view nor consistent in my analogies.

    it seemed like when i was watching the games everyone was talking about how exciting the celebrations are and how its great to see the joy in the players until it came to the American's doing it. Im not a fan of celebrating but its the world cup and it only happens every 4 years. lets not forget how it went for the Atlanta Falcons when they let up in the super bowl with a 28-3 lead.

    That kind of joke isn't funny. We live in a country where many minority groups are marginalized. Women although the actual majority are part of that marginalized group. Something so silly as not wearing makeup and your commentary on it is disgusting. My mom and my wife don't wear makeup regularly and both are extremely successful. Why would it matter if a woman, let alone a powerful and successful one, wear makeup?

    You need to stick to the kitchen and lay off the soccer commentary. You don't seem to like it and it clearly isn't your forte.

    You are part of the problem with America. I pray that your daughter doesn't get treated to way you hope that other people's daughters are treated.....

    He is establishing himself as the local fashion critic. Doesn't have much else.

    Now I get it. I knew that there was a reason that I liked you other than your on point commentary. Barry Sanders played the game how it was meant to be played. With passion AND professionalism.

    Interesting moment (Germany - Spain) - referee did a one-sided drop ball, even signaling the opponent not to contest it.

    Isn’t that the new law change? No more contested drop balls.

    This is a damn good game between two very skilled teams. It's hard to focus on work during this one.

    The women's game is so much more physical than the men's game. And the refs just let it happen.

    France has swapped out two of the forwards. Their attacking depth is impressive. The two that they are including are studs (studettes?).

    What about the old "I didn't see who kicked it out" dropped ball?
