    Who cares about baseball? In any case, Japan won it. And baseball is liked in Japan, and most of the players who won it, play in US anyway. It's not a big deal if Japan wins it since they love the sport there, and its popular. That's not the case with Soccer and the US.

    I heard that the USA squad for the World Cup is really struggling to get up to the 23 players limit because noone in America actually likes the game.

    LOL wouldn't suprise me. Actually, I've heard that our team is decent. Not european or south american standard, but decent. That suprised me, as I have no idea where the players come from. I know we suprised some people in South Korea, but I thought it was a one-time luck thing.

    Major League Soccer = 12 squads * at least 15 US players in each = 180 players. Plus the 10 or so that are over in Europe playing football.

    England vs the Argies, 3-0, Crouch hattrick

    with 3rd place playoff

    Germany vs Holland

    Germany exact revenge for the Rijkard-Voller incident as over the course of the game, the entire squad manage to land greenies in the horse's mane. The horse starts crying, Robben is sparked out by Lehmann, Score is irrelavant.

    England V Brazil

    England win 7-0, thanks to six goals from owen hargreaves and an overhead kick from Paul Robinson

    I considered writing something decent and semi-amusing, but there was no way I could top cpr's piece, which had me, quite literally, p***ing myself at my desk.

    Not sure about that.

    It's certainly Britain's No 1 participant sport with over 4 million who go 'at least once a year', but as for world-wide?

    There's a few billion Chinese and South Asians who just might push footy, cricket, mah-jongg (Chinese version of 'slam de dominor') ahead of fishing - or rather, 'angling' as opposed to catching fish in order to stay alive.
