If we continues to play until the tie was broken, that game could have lasted until Sunday night. Also, why in USA we have sports that dont end in a tie and time clocks that go down to zero not the other way around. But, even though soccer pretty much puts me to sleep, I watched the last 20 minutes. I guess we are happy for a tie. YEAH!

My high school team only won a single game and the last 1/3 of that game, we played kickball essentially. Over the fence, in the stand, wherever it was going, we kicked it as hard as we could to burn clock.

That was the same feeling I got today. US lucked into a goal and were holding on for dear life to maintain the tie. It held though which is much better than a loss.

Only a fool does it with volume on or as the main source of entertainment. Soccer muted while surfing the Mane? Perfect.

Horrible mistake but he did save England more embarrasment with an outstanding point blank save from Altidore.

good god! Who could put up with those f ing horns. If you dropped just 100 Americans that have never been to a game and one of those annoying mother ****ers was blowing that horn for 95 minutes, I guarantee you there would be 50 fist fights and 30 guys walking out and the other 20 hanging out at the bar/concession stand.

I found it to be quite intense and enjoyable. And it didn't have the worst thing about American sports: commercials.

And BTW South Africa; any country that thinks those f-ing horns are cool, and has a common practice called "corrective rape", will never be on my vacation itinerary.

I enjoyed the game. I like fairly matched games as blows out bore the ever living crap out of me (I think this of American Football also). I did not enjoy the fans in the pub booing the National Anthem, it took some restraint on my part not to jump over the seat and become a hooligan and kick their limey arses. However I did mention that we didn't piss all over your God Save the Queen, how about you STFU (or maybe something more PC). Our goalie was wonderful, the UK guy unfortunately is most likely going to be roasted and put in highlight reels for the next 6 months. I believe we are competitive on the world stage and I like that, but we have more to do, just as England does if they or we want to win it all.

As for soccer being painful, well, everyone had their cup of tea or beer as the case maybe, if you don't like it, don't watch, I would just appreciate less the pissing on everyone else's parade who does enjoy it. I don't like cricket or baseball, but I don't go starting threads about it. Anyway, tangent aside. GO USA! (and yes we were the only 4 people in the bar cheering the Americans and we stood for the American Anthem. I must do more of these things. I love sports).y

Note: if my english is a bit slurred (I had three beers and two vodka shooters so I might be a little goofy) e

I think as mentioned above one thing soccer has especially over the NFL...

Soccer: kick off... 45 straight minutes of uninteruped play... half time... 45 straight minutes of uninterupted play

NFL: 4 plays... 4 commercials... 8 plays, touchdown... 4 commercials... kick off... 4 commercials... 4 plays... 4 commercials... 6 plays, quarter ends... 4 commercials... 2 plays... 4 commercials...

After each play promos for Everybody Loves Raymond or The Simpsons and NOT SHOWING REPLAYS SO THEY CAN PROMO TERRIBLE SIT COMS THAT I'LL NEVER WATCH IN A MILLION YEARS.

It can be insufferable.

Ha - I was in Argentina for 2 years on a mission - so I was immersed in the sport which was fun. Soccer is a great game to physically play, but not so much to watch - Kind of like Rugby. I was in Argentina when our men's soccer team first beat Argentina in the world stage - the mission pres told us to stay in doors for a few days to let the social mood chill out a bit. So, of course, I found a copy of the game watched it and hung an American flag off of our balcony - it was a blast. My companion was from Uruguay so we had a blast with this...rubbed it in whenever we could.

I can watch a game but definitely nowhere near as intense as our pro sports. After 2 years of just soccer, I got into Miami Airport after the mission was over and saw Sportscenter highlights and started literally sobbing - NOTHING LIKE USA SPORTS ANYWHERE!!!!

In my world every person seen within 10 feet of one of those horns would have it inserted 16 inches into his or her rectum, and then be savagely beaten. Honestly, Saddam Hussein and Kim Jong Il are bad people, but the people who blow those horns are on whole other level of sinister, no punishment is too cruel or unusual.

I played soccer in middle school through my freshman year of HS...since then I have not watched or paid any attention to soccer. Im happy the rest of the world enjoys soccer. Gives me a reason to love American football that much more.

I was in San Jose, Costa Rica a few years back when CR played Ecuador. Everything shut down for the entire day. Game ended in a tie and city erupted like it was the second coming. My wife and I just kind of looked at each other like, "huh." I guess a tie exceeded their expectations...

Apparently the only time you don't riot is when the came is called on account of rain.

The game shouldve tied and it did. Unlike most American sports it's not a game of instant gratification. That makes scoring all the more miraculous.
