#1329599 The World Cup Thread

USA wins the World Cup, in 2026.

 

Probably this country's last best chance to win in my lifetime.

*while becoming the most expensive player ever and getting PAIDDDD, which are both pretty good things

 

This is not meant or intended to be a personal attack - it is really just sad how money, or how much someone earns, has become the measure of a man.

World Cup TV ratings are down 42% since the USMNT didn't make the tournament....

 

Makes you wonder what the ratings will be like in 4 years when the World Cup goes head to head with the NFL, NBA, NHL, and college basketball all at once. The start times of the matches will be somewhat similar to what they have been for this year.

 

Any guess on which English language broadcast outlet will be available to show the tournament? All the major networks are pretty much booked solid after noon on the weekends.

On Friday one of the guys in my department was going on and on about the fix being in for Russia and his pick for the final is Russia 3 - Japan 1. Just before leaving we had the following conversation:

 

Me: If your prediction comes to pass you can have my paychecks for the rest of the year.

Him: You're on, and I have 3 witnesses to back me up.

 

Japan can't possibly beat Belgium, can they?




#1315720 The Islanders are coming home!

Posted by bukie2k on 28 December 2017 - 08:25 PM

Refused to spend a dime on them at home since the move to Barclays.

 

Glad I can eventually start going to Isles home games again. Made the trip out to Uniondale 2-3 times a year from North Jersey for more than 30 years before the move to Brooklyn in addition to seeing them against the Devils at the Meadowlands or in Newark.

 

Hopefully the return home will finally bring "One for the Thumb", an achievement which is currently one of the top 3 on my bucket list.

The way the Mexican fans started fleeing the stadium at 4-0 I thought for a moment I was watching a Rangers playoff ass beating at the Garden. Wasn't surprised at all when the side quit on the field with 30 minutes left in the game. It was such a stunning development for the El Tri fans they couldn't even muster the desire to litter the field with bottles after the next 3 Chilean goals.

 

Fuck 'em.

Would SportCenter actually take a break from their daily LeBron, Russell Wilson, Tom Brady dick sucking to report on anything in MLS?




#1269993 Potential sale of stadium name and team

Posted by bukie2k on 20 October 2015 - 04:51 PM

Selling the naming rights to their most visible asset in the US seems a bit odd for such an ego-centric organization.

 

The story is probably a ploy by the FO so they can sit back and watch everyone have a nutty on the boards instead of doing something constructive.

FrightFest at 6 Flags brings them in from all over.




#1261794 Custom Metro jerseys being made

Posted by bukie2k on 16 July 2015 - 08:21 PM

What about Arvizu?

My daughter has one of his "game worn" jerseys. She stalked that poor bastard for I don't know how many weeks before he gave one to her. It is still in her closet along with the Hunter Freeman jersey she snatched the night the team honored the Virginia Tech shooting victims.

 

As far as the Metros jersey, how come no one mentioned Caricola? He is after all the one who set this franchise upon the sadsack road it has traveled for 20 years.

Or that El Tri would want him to dull his finely honed edge plying his trade in MLS.

Maybe the "Red Bull Takes Manhattan" performance group will be in the parade.

 

I never understood why you cover your face if you are sooooo hardcore. :)+

Lloyd making New Jersey proud!

Tobin Heath from Jersey too.

 

Klinsi should take a lesson on how to peak at the right time during a tournament from this team.

BWP99 disappeared, or at the very least had his burning passion for the franchise cooled, shortly after I wondered about his employment situation.

Sad to say that sock puppetry is the only thing this franchise has ever exceled at.

If RB DOES sell, expect a group of fans that will still support them. You can figure out who.

They will be much easier to marginalize if the team is no longer a living, breathing product advertisement. Protesting a new ownership group has a lot less bite than protesting a clueless, uncaring owner.
