Bob Ley's "Italy's won a Cup this way and lost a Cup this way" gave me flashbacks to '94 and Roberto what's his face sailing the ball to the next county and hearing every single curse word in Italian imaginable being screamed by my Italian uncle.

robsul82: Roberto what's his face


Baggio.
 
2013-06-30 02:40:34 PM  
Miss, Uruguay.
 
2013-06-30 02:40:36 PM  

rickythepenguin: couple of really good chances late for Guay!


Uruguay is best Guay?

rickythepenguin: robsul82: Roberto what's his face

Baggio.


Ah, that's it.

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL, Italy.

Roberto Baggio, best player in that WC just about. If you had to put money on someone not missing, it was him.
 
2013-06-30 02:41:45 PM  
GOOOOOOOOOAL, Uruguay.
 
2013-06-30 02:43:46 PM  
SAVE, Uruguay!

2-2 after 3 rounds.
 
2013-06-30 02:44:35 PM  
Easy peasy on that one.
 
2013-06-30 02:45:15 PM  
3-2 Italy into the last round.
 
2013-06-30 02:45:55 PM  
Stuffffffffffed

Italy wins.
 
2013-06-30 02:46:11 PM  
GIGI BUFFON comes up big
Congrats Italia!
 
2013-06-30 02:46:25 PM  
what dreadfully taken PKs!  uruguay, dammit.
 
2013-06-30 02:50:36 PM  
A fine bronze medal game... Let's hope the gold is as good!
 
2013-06-30 04:18:33 PM  
Fun game, overall. Buffon came up big in the shoot-out, but man those were some terribly taken PK's. You gotta feel bad for Forlan, that's 2 missed PK's in the tournament.
 
2013-06-30 05:34:10 PM  
HULK SMASH!!!

Agreed.  Uruguay let me down again, you'd think I'd be used to it...  Anyway, after being cheered up by the ladies of Republica Deportiva, let's see what España can do.

Spain. Brazil. The music of Justin Timberlake.

Uh, wut?

I was wondering that too. Why is JT involved in this whatsoever? Just pay the people EA used in FIFA 13.

It could have been worse. "Ladies and gentlemen, the musical stylings of Paula Deen."

This is basically 'Fark the unrest for the next two hours, let's go Selecao'.
 
2013-06-30 05:59:52 PM  
Julio Cesar for Arsenal? So Szszszzs is done then, or just competition?
 
2013-06-30 06:00:51 PM  
This crowd is load. Should be fun but we need an early Brazil goal to make it a good final.
 
2013-06-30 06:00:52 PM  
Brazil's goalie is named Julio Cesar?

Let's be glad the game isn't being played in mid-March.

Gosling: This is basically 'Fark the unrest for the next two hours, let's go Selecao'.


Imagine the unrest if they lose
 
2013-06-30 06:02:04 PM  
Why is Brazil wearing white shorts? Is it just because Spain's wearing blue shorts or is that what they're wearing this year?

/WOW fast goal.
 
2013-06-30 06:02:08 PM  
90 seconds GOAL
YABBA
DABBA
DOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
 
2013-06-30 06:02:39 PM  
BRASIL
FRED

Well this is going to be nuts. Great play.

2013-06-30 06:02:56 PM  
Damn that was quick - things could get ugly soon
 
2013-06-30 06:03:38 PM  
what a sloppy goal all the way around!

My friend (Spain fan):

"We have Pique, Ramos, Xavi, Torres..."

Me (Brazil fan):

"We have a Hulk"
 
2013-06-30 06:05:09 PM  
Last time Spain got scored on first in a knockout match, they lost. Jozy and Clint in that Confederations Cup match of 2009.

Do remember, the unrest likely won't stop with the World Cup. There's an Olympics only two years further down the road.

Nations have a way of bundling their international attention like that:

Brazil: 2014 World Cup, 2016 Olympics
Russia: 2014 Olympics, 2018 World Cup
United States: 1994 World Cup, 1996 Olympics
United States again: 1982 and 1984 World's Fairs, 1984 Olympics
Japan: 1998 Olympics, 2002 World Cup
China: 2008 Olympics, 2010 World's Fair
Spain: 1992 Olympics, 1992 World's Fair
Mexico: 1968 Olympics, 1970 World Cup
Germany: 1972 Olympics, 1974 World Cup
Sweden: 1956 Olympics (equestrian events), 1958 World Cup
 
2013-06-30 06:06:56 PM  
The sound level of this game is massive, can barely hear a thing on the pitch. Crowd is way into this.
 
2013-06-30 06:07:23 PM  
Well Spain sure is certain that was a handball...
 
2013-06-30 06:08:38 PM  
Wild shot from Oscar
 
2013-06-30 06:09:06 PM  
This game is going to escalate quickly.

Torres looks like Christian Bale with his short hair.

To be fair, these two are Winter Olympics, not as big or as hyped as the summer Olympics.

Olympics all the same.

Tiki-taka's not going to work against these guys, Spain. The Brazilians can and will steal it and jam it down your throats. You'll have to take the direct approach.
 
2013-06-30 06:15:38 PM  
Neymar flops more than the spurs and heat combined.
 
2013-06-30 06:15:54 PM  
Yellow card on that. And now we get a 4v4 shoving match.

Nymar pulls a Wade
 
2013-06-30 06:16:07 PM  
HANDBAGS!

Good call from the ref on the yellow, bad decision from Alvaro.
 
2013-06-30 06:16:09 PM  
I missed that replay. Did he even touch him?
 
2013-06-30 06:16:57 PM

if by touching you mean grazing his arm...
 
2013-06-30 06:17:50 PM  

VTGremlin: I missed that replay. Did he even touch him?


Alittle, probably enough to move him, it was a bad play; not enough to throw him 15 yards down pitch flying around.

Nymar is due for a yellow for a bad flop, but I can't see any ref giving him one during a home WC, no way that happens.

Man.  I don't miss "knee bangs" in soccer.  Those really...really hurt.  It looks like they shouldn't, but ugh.  They really suck.
 
2013-06-30 06:18:10 PM  
Fred to City? If I'm Edin Dzeko, looking at more time off the bench, I'm trying to get my ticket out of Manchester today.
