I don't think most in the US think of it as a whooping. I think most here were holding their breath through the second half praying for no major lapses and surviving with a tie. No one that I was hanging with was thinking the US team did anything other than play pretty well, get pretty lucky and escaped with a point. I think the pics from the end of the game where the US team was celebrating a tie and the English team was walking off semi-dejectedly summed it up pretty well.

If your expectation is to lose and you tie, that seems a win. If your expectation is to win and you tie, that seems a loss. In the end though one more goal each and they'd still be even.

Nah, I think it hardly matters anyway. Both Slovenia and Algeria have really poor squads, as usual, so US and UK probably will both qualify with 7 points out of nine. And besides, in the end it's only about who gets the honour to lose against us further down the road, and I'm fairly indifferent about that.

It's not soccer, it's FOOTBALL - Association Football. And in football, a tie is a tournament match, ie a semi-final tie. A game where the teams finish level is a draw.

:D :D :D

Huh?

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

Same here. I'm trying to give soccer a chance, but I can't handle the noise. I don't want to mute the tv so I can actually know what's going on and hear when something is happening.
