USA v. Canada - at last.

Round bacon, Don Cherry, Labatt's and Celine Dion - Canada's Contributions to World Culture

People who eat too much bacon, the Anaheim Ducks, Bud Light, and Britney Spears - America's Contributions to World Culture.

Comparing the two, it looks like a tie to me, so the only way to settle it is a soccer match.

Is it wheat bread or brown bread?

Organization or organ-eye-zation?

What's our record against the Canucks?

They got DeRosario, Serioux, Onstad a couple of our guys and nobody else of note. Where's Radzinski? Is he only a part time Canadian?

My guess is Onstad would have to be a beast in net and DeRo would have to hoist the team on his shoulders.

Same as Mexico. 2-0 but that's almost certainly gonna be wrong.

Here's a poser: does Rush tip the scales for or against Canada?

LANDON DONOVAN VS ANTE JAZIC!!

If Landon remains at "right mid" (or whatever bradley is having him do) and Jazic is at left back, they are in for a battle.

DeRosario vs Ricardo Clark could be good too, but I dont think Ricardo will get to start.

...ooooh ooooooooh we are the riot squad...

Besides DeRo, they have a guy named de Guzman or some such a thing who can score.

This will be payback....for all the times Canada has beat us in Olympic Ice Hockey!! Stick to your national sport, Canucks, and leave soccer to us, Yanks :lol:

Seriously, Canada worries me more than Mexico right now. DeRosario & DeGuzman must be contained by Mastroeni & Bradley/Feilhaber!! They're in top form & we're struggling with our finishing :( However, we have more depth & talent and should come out on top :)

-----------------------------Howard-------------------------
Spector----------Parkhurst---------Boca--------Bornstein
--------------Mastroeni----------------Feilhaber------------
--Donovan----------------------------------------Beasley--
-----------------Dempsey----------------Johnson----------

Subs: DeMerit, Simek & Clark, if ahead. Mapp, Bradley & Ching, if behind or even.

I'd rest Gooch (yellow card) & save him for Borgetti & Mexico :P I'd also save Heydude for Mexico (same reason as Gooch) & see how Feilhaber pairs with Mastroeni!!

EJ's speed (provided he's 100%) should give the Canadian defense fits!!

I see a 2-0 USA win!! I'll be at the Fox & Hounds in Studio City on Thursday, if anybody wants to join in the USA "victory party" :cheers:

L.A. Galaxy - 4-Time & Back-to-Back MLS Cup Champions!!

Brady Hoke - returning U-M to glory...Go, Blue!

USA Soccer - Don't Tread On Us!

 

Colombia - returning to the World Cup after 16-year hiatus!

They've got Rush but we have Rush Limbaugh, so we both have a lot to answer for.

I'm really kind of excited about this. A good rivalry with Canada could be fun because it wouldn't have the ethnic/racial/economic/historical concerns we have with Mexico.

That said, U.S. over Canada by our traditional North American score of 2-0

If Rush was the determining factor, and it was 1981, we would be totally crushed.

Eddie Money on the USA as a striker would be like Shevchenko on Ukraine's team in the 2006 World Cup.
With Geddy Lee as the striker, Alex Lifeson in the midfield, and Dr. Neil Peart between the pipes for Canada, USA would be toast.

But back in '81, the U.S. would have had Hall and Oates in central defense, - they'd completely lock up Geddy Lee. With their private eyes, they'd be watching him, watching his every move.

With these Street Light People manning the midfield, Don't Stop Believin'.
