    Quit picking on soccer, Greg. It already is the sport of the future everywhere but here. I’d rather watch a televised EPL game over an NFL game anytime. Besides soccer players having more skill and athleticism than the beefy lunks who play American football, there isn’t a commercial every time somebody flubs a pass or demands an instant replay. In real football (soccer) games, the play continues without commercial interruption for 45 minutes or more at a time. Then everyone takes a bathroom break, grabs a beer while the ocmmercials run, then comes back for another 45 minutes. Best of all, when it’s over, nobody douses the coach in Gatorade.
    That doesn’t mean I don’t listen to Chiefs games on the radio.

    The REAL top five reasons Waters and Hali are silent.
    5-Saving vocal chords to cheer in the Hall vs Jojo race.
    4-Hoping to become volunteers in the mayor’s office and will need to scream over Gloria calling them Uncle Tom, Uncle Ben’s Rice, and children of Aunt Jemima.
    3-Pissed off that the quarterbacks get all the hot women.
    2-Some people go on hunger strikes. They are going on a speech strike until the Glazier movie comes out.
    1-To busy reading and trying to make sense out of JoJo’s posts. Once this alien life force is figured out they will hold news conference to explain to us mere mortals the meaning of life.

    Mike H,
    All those soccer players are the same size — Lilliputian. In phony football we have all sizes and shapes of beings. It makes for a more accepting and less prejudice game. Play continues in soccer w/o interruption because no one notices the difference when they stop! Those nil

    I think I like your REAL (or is that RE-AL) Top 5 more than mine.

    Under the PANIC blog Jojo talks about his family being successful. I think it is off limits to slam someone’s immediate family even if you are joking. However that doesn’t prevent me from slamming JOJO definition of success. So with that in mind. JOJO’s TOP SIX SIGNS YOU ARE SUCCESSFUL.
    6-You get the employee discount at Mcdonalds.
    5-At Worlds of Fun on at least some of the rides you reach the height requirement.
    4-You can tell the difference between Jason Giambi and Jason Whitlock.
    3-You’ve collected at least 25 tickets from either Dave and Busters or Chucky Cheese.
    2-Your cousin Mermaid from your step mothers marriage to your uncle Fred by your sister on your uncle’s side, who was also a distant cousin, passed the 6th grade.
    1-Greg Hall who’ve you’ve called every name in the book still hasn’t kicked you off the site.

    NOW that is success.

    All shapes and all sizes, Greg? Maybe, if you consider all sizes as XXL to XXXXL. Only the quarterbacks look like halfway normal human beings. Most everyone else on the teams look as if they’re regulars at the Chinese buffet and have no qualms about going back for thirds.
    Lilliputian? Soccer players are not tiny. They are fit. I can see how you’d be confused on this point, being a Nebraskan like myself.
    Stout is not just a type of beer in the Cornhusker State. It’s a all too familiar body type.
    Soccer is more of an everyman’s sport that American football. For every 5’6” striker, there’s a 5’11 defender and 6′ keeper. True, you won’t find many over 200. So pro soccer players tend to stick out here in the midwest (speaking as an over 200 guy myself).
    I admit that nil nil scores are frustrating, but over a season they mean something. One point for a tie. Three for a win.
    Yes, there’s math involved.
    Also, you might remember that American football games used to have tie scores, but they changed that in response to the short attention spans and juvenile needs of the American public.
    Oh, I’m an elitist, am I (anticipating your rejoinder)? Darn tootin’.

    PS…I will give you this. If NFL games were more like high school football games (which I enjoy for their pace and lack of self-important, NFL bs) I might enjoy them more. No announcers or coaches constantly jabbering about “the National Football League, as if it were the friggin’ heights of Mt. Olympus, and nobody making multisyllabic references to the ball in question.
    Why is it that in American football the object of everyone’s attention is almost always referred to by its full name football rather than as just the ball. You don’t hear this in baseball, soccer, basketball and other sports. It’s just the ball.
    Is it because the “expedrts” need to remind themselves what type of ball it at the the heart of the game, or might it have something to do with trying to make the game more high-falutin and complicated than it really is?
    There’s a topic for you.

    Sister Bridget

    The Minnesota quarterback who was famous for his scrambling ability (as well as never winning a Super Bowl) spells his last name “Tarkenton.” Now come up here in front of the class and hold out your hand.

    Mike: Football games can still have tie scores–it just happened last year. I’m sure you knew that, though.

    Thanks again, Gavin. We did have a Sister Bridget at St. Joe’s Grade School but my first grade teacher was Sister Irma — who would have made Tarkenton look downright feminine.

    Yeah, I couldn’t remember Sr. Irma and I took a gamble that there was a Sr. Bridget somewhere in there. In my experience, there is ALWAYS a Sr. Bridget in a Catholic school.

    Actually, Brian Waters did speak with the media one day at training camp, to one TV outlet. The small group that was there at the beginning of camp was inside the University Center for Todd Haley’s media session. The only man outside, with a camera, was from KAKE-TV in Wichita. Brian stopped and talked with him for 2 minutes. We used part of it on Metro Sports. I’m guessing since Brian saw just 1 camera and it was an out-of-towner, he thought it was safe to stop and talk. Apparently, that reporter wasn’t as ‘scary’ as the rest of us.
