Phew, I thought Randy Gradishar died or something.

Former Sports Illustrated soccer beat writer Grant Wahl died in the press area of the stadium during the.match, though. :(

Oh, I thought something important to Americans happened.

Penalties isn't exactly "crushed" but I appreciate that it's hard to make a headline so fine.

/penalties are also a terrible way to resolve an elimination-round match
//the fact that actual championships have been decided on them is a travesty

Argentina played better for most of the match, and had all the OT chances too. I thought Netherlands would take it when they got to PKs though.

No "Brazil waxed" headlines?

I support the idea of having them take the PKs at the end of regulation. Only then play extra time; if still tied at the end of it, the team that won PKs advances.

Watched my "socially obligated" couple of weeks of soccer for four years.

Yep.

I wonder who had a bigger body-count; the movie "300", or soccer?

It's like watching Duck Hunt. But without the cool dog...

I can't fathom why anyone would complain about pk's. They're more exciting than anything that happens in any American sport

expected Broncos or Syracuse but this works.

I'm an England fan. Given their record in the damn things, I farking hate Penalty Shootouts

Now that the dust has settled we can see that Dumfries did indeed get a second yellow for throwing himself at the celebrating argentines after the penalty shootout.

The one thing that everyone seems to agree on is that the referee was utter crap and had lost total control of the game by the end.

How crap are we talking here? Baseline "not quite up to the task" polished turd? "Give three yellow cards to the same player in one game" crap crap? Or "has an active Fark account twelve years later" unforgivably awful?

"It's all about me, the crowd don't want to watch these 22 soccer players" level of crap.

They're a better way to resolve them than "play until someone gets a goal because they're the only one left with energy"

Association football: crushed = 2 - 2 tie

American football: crushed = Joe Theisman's leg

I thought this was going to be another article piling on Russell Wilson.

Crushed = Ended your hopes at a title and you don't have another chance until 2026.

Yes. The thing that happens to every single squad save one.

I didn't think the Dutch were favored to get all that far. Spain and Brazil got crushed given their expectations. Same for Germany and Belgium although Courtois tried to shut down the hype before the tournament.

I also sometimes enjoy an orange crush. This one was too sweet but the presentation was enough to make it passable.
