Ditto.  Except I wasn't copying and my guesses will be uniquely wrong...

Italy looked terrible today. At least it wasn't their age that caused the tie. Makes me feel slightly better but they need to step it up several times.

How is all the "obvious" games turn out not to be obvious.  France ties Uruguay, they are losing to Mexico, Spain loses, actually the only countries that have pretty much played as expected have been Brazil and Germany....  Well, at least my prediction about being uniquely wrong, was right...

The ref in the Germany Serbia match is out of control.   

4 yellows and and a red I in the first half.

I am sure i am going to get a yellow for just writing this. He is turning  soccer into the NBA.

Uck.  Leave it to the US to let Slovenia score first.  And then, just when the US was starting to look good in the latter part of the first half they give up that second goal.  So much for my hopes of the US getting out of the group at 2-0-1.

***EDIT - Perhaps I spoke too soon.  Amazing goal by Landon Donovan!

Leave it up to a ref to completely **** the US out of the win.

Unreal.  >:(

WTF!?!?!?!  Some of the US players asked the ref about the foul on Maurice Edu's disallowed goal.  The ref would not tell them what it was.  Meanwhile, some of the US players were being blatantly held in the box.

Oh, and this was this particular ref's FIRST ever World Cup match.  ::)

So the Score today is Refs 2 - Teams/Players/Fans  0..........

Let's hope the match is decided on the pitch by the players in the next one.

Yeah, right on.  Refs should immediately start with their SECOND ever World Cup match.   :-*

I don't care that it was this ref's first match.  That's not my chief concern here.  However I DO care that he made a monumentally bad call on what just happened to be his first World Cup match.

Taking the piss because Canada didn't make the tournament, Brent?   :-*
