England Be All Like...



Yes, there is a chance for the Three Lions to roar on to the knockouts. They just need Italy to beat Costa Rica today, beat the Ticos themselves in group game three, have Italy beat Uruguay and and somehow manage to win a goal differential tiebreaker (or goals scored if that decider is even)that they currently trail by four.

Easy, right?

I sure hope Italy makes this interesting and beats Costa Rica tonight. What would be beautiful, is to see Italy win their next two games and then see England dashed by a little banana republic. That would be a thing of beauty, that we should all be rooting for.

England just isn't that good. Neither is Italy. This group is overrated and I see Costa Rica having an excellent chance to advance. Probably with Uruguay.

That would catch everyone by surprise if CR and URU advance out of the group, but if CR can claim 3 pts vs ITA I like the chances.

The Americas are 9 wins and two losses so far in this tournament against non American teams.

Its almost like Europeans dont play well in South America...

We did it in the 09 Confed cup. But we are American and they have the English defeatist mindset.

"Banana republic" is an insulting, inaccurate and unnecessary term.

What Costa Rica is is a very good soccer team

dikranovich said...

Make that ten wins and two losses.

Bravo ticos!!!

No snow and they look pretty good

Wow, thought control in full force and effect tonight.

Tony, I do still want to sing my teams fight song for you, but I guess the patent and trademark office says I can't.

Jacob Klinger said...

Oh I get it, you took the real-world implications of patent law and switched them with those of the first amendment.

Classy.

dikranovich said...

Mr. Klinger, would you mind speaking in something other than lawyer code please.

When you say real world implications of patent law, are you refering to three judges, of which only two voted to drop the trademark, is that the real world you are talking about?

Tom said...

dik since you're not talking about patents, either, you might want to know that nothing prevents you from using the Washington football team's chosen nickname. Ownership just has limited legal recourse to stop others from profiting on the mark.

It isn't "lawyer speak" to discern between "patent" "trademark" and private vs commercial speech.

Kinda closer to basic civics
