I think Bacon's going to be pissed off...........

After Portugal beat England on penalty kicks. ......I'll give you a minute to let that sink in--PENALTY KICKS?!?! What's up with that?

See, this is one reason Americans will just never get "European" football. In "real" football, one goes mano y mano and gets beat on points during the game or maybe in the overtime. This business of a "shootout" , just seems pretty darn un-American if you ask me. First, with overtimes the game lasted 120 minutes...2 HOURS for a football game? Second the "shootout was not a 'sudden death' event. WTF ?

Sourrain had already declared her intention not to support England. I don't necessarily understand that. Then again, I still don't understand why Scotland has it's own team. That, to me, is like saying Texas will play its own team in the Olympics. Sorry guys, we settled all that during the war of northern aggression Civil War. One team-one fight!

So now its down to a choice between Germany, France, Italy or Portugal.........so much for globalization. Guess I'll have to root for Germany on principles sake......at least Iran is not in the semi-finals. However for an English soccer fan , probably not a good way to start the trip........

For what its worth, summer training camps are opening up for "real" football players this week. Did not anyone think to get a paper?

England deserves to lose with that looney Rooney and over-rated Beckham, wasn't a wonder.
