Is anyone around here watching? So far I tried to watch every game (only missed South Korea vs. Greece, but during the week only one game is possible), but holy shit, the quality of the games is absymal this year. Hardly any goals (16 so far in 10 games, a ridiculous quote), and most times it is horrible to watch. The priority of the teams seem to be defense at any costs, which sucks the life out of the games. I still wait for group G with Brazil, Portugal and Ivory Coast, and when they suck too, I give up. Right now defending champion Italy plays Paraguay, and they don't convince either. On the other hand, they never played the most attractive game.
Let's hope quality improves soon. It can't get any worse.....can it?
Benny Parsons, '73 Winston Cup champ, dies at 65 That's too bad. He was a fantastic commentator even going back to his ESPN days, and it seemed like he'd had his cancer beat since he was back at the races for the end of the Chase.
