The Great Goal Dichotomy

As Bayern and Madrid fight through the morass of aching leg muscles in extra time at the Bernabeu, I bring you an MLS play in two parts. The Dichotomy of Goalmouth Tragicomedy, I call it.

Bleh, I really loathe the "not goal of the week" segment. The first week Simon did it there were a lot of great candidates for that honor so it probably made sense to do it. But every week since there is typically only 1 really good(bad) one and the rest are routine misses (i.e. skying a rebound over the bar from 10-15 yards) or good saves like Oduro's shot on this week's edition -- sure, he should score, but Kocic makes a great save.

Right, some of those were pretty harsh. I posted because Columbus' miss was worth watching, but he even acknowledges one or two of those are not easy efforts.

isnt the real point that ronaldo had made something like twenty-four in a row and neur new which way it was going and he willed the next pk in the same direction. i dont know why he did not go the same way the third time. thank goodness spain can take a break from winning for a little bit. please euro, dont let those lazy seista ass lovers win another championship for awhile.

Lazy siesta ass lovers, eh? That's a new one.

dikranovich said...

your right, lazy ass siesta lovers makes more sense, but either way, spanish success in recent years has messed up the usa progress a little and it maybe has caused a loss of focus.

How so? You mean in terms of us and the rest of the world trying to copy them?

jacob, honestly, you saw the champions league semifinals. does it really look like the rest of the world is trying to copy spain and barca, or beat them?
