I remember that race. When asked for comment Manny explained, "He puushed, I puushed". What a character.

Yes, it's a business, and a very lucrative one at that, but its profitability, as well as it's very existence, depends on the public's view of it as a sport.

I forgot the bookmakers had the French as slight favorites though it seemed most of the pundits favored Belgium.

France - Belgium today. Should be a corker with 2 best teams in tournament. Winner will probably go on to win final. I give Belgium a slight edge.
Can I be any more chalky?

England are all over Sweden leading 2 nil. Oddly enough, Kane had no part in either goal with Sterling doing a ton of running and giving the Swedish defense fits.

I stand corrected. The rule has changed since the time I played. I wish that was the rule then. I hated having to keep track of how many steps I was taking.

If he hadn't bounced the ball every 3rd step the ref or any of his assistants or video assitant would have caught it. You must have missed it.

Today's game was not the most skillful exhibition but that's because the Columbians spent more time kicking the English players than the ball. Gritty win by England, who stand a good chance to make...

Before the game I thought Belgium would roll over Japan but the Japanese played the most organized and intelligent football I've seen so far in the tournament.

Thanks for the info. Not as impressive as I had heard, though if one factors in the awful trip she can earn much better.

One of the most promising performances by a 2YO filly I've seen in a long time by the winner of the Debutante Stakes. Restless Rider lost at least 5 lengths when the leader broke down right in front...

Correction: France won't have to face Brazil until the stage after next. However,
they will likely have to play Uruguay next - another strong team with Suarez and Calvani (my favorite player)

Mexico was also impressive in the last World Cup. Ochoa in goal is in the same top form and Chicharito is always dangerous up front.
