BvB!
Yeah

I like the Premier League ... though I have no favorite team.   One day I was watchin' FOX (?) and saw the Dortmund unis.    I was hooked.    :)

Lots of Olympic soccer today on NBCSN and USA.  Also, on the Olympic soccer channel if you know where that is; I have no idea where mine is on Xfinity,

Lots of good action and some surprising results in the first day of men's action.

I wondered how Fiji got in.  And then found out they beat that noted powerhouse Vanuatu on penalty kicks.

They played a tough first half but then caved.

Thanks for the heads up - I totally forgot that good stuff was on before the opening ceremonies.  Got Nigeria/Japan on now.

Four goals in the first 11 minutes. I turned it off as I was about to OD on soccer.

US Soccer is a joke. I'm tired of defending Jurgen.

As I read this article, I couldn't help thinking about Red Sox/Yankees, GS/Cavs   ....   not location but media attention:

Alright.   Speak up.    Who else got up at this un-Godly hour to watch the Premier League?      Attended the Nats' game last night.    Saw Rob Dibble's Ghost.    Had too many beverages.      Here I am.    I certifiably have issues.     :)

Nice shot.    All I see is Leicester in the Hull end.    Then, Hull comes down in extra time (1st half) and the cat executes an over the head scissors Pele' special.   :clap:
