We are down to the final 8 in the World Cup. What started out as 32 teams (Hell, 205 teams if you count how many teams tried to even qualify for the tournament) is has been whittled down to 8. Unless you have been under a rock, you heard that the US made a spirited run to the final 16 teams only to have a fairly poor showing against Ghana. They really should be in the final 8 and in their next match, they could have even had a fighting chance to make the final four. It would have been epic and helped that much more to the baby steps soccer is taking towards become an actual sport people in the US watch. You don't think people in the US cared? Watch this extremely touching video of reactions across the US when we scored in the very end of the our third game to qualify for the second round. This just gives me goosebumps beyond belief. It gets extra points because one of my college hangouts made the video!
I still think we are about 10-12 years away and one GOOD run by the US in the World Cup from soccer becoming a big thing here. But to see people who couldn't care less about soccer beforehand suddenly talking about the game made me so proud.
So how will the final 8 go?
Well, I see it going like this...
Holland defeats Brazil
Uruguay defeats Ghana
Argentina defeats Germany
Spain defeats Paraguay
From there, we shall after this weekend!
Ok, before I sign off, you are probably wondering what the hell the title of this thread had to do with this post, right? I just found this great video on YouTube that shows the 100 greatest insults of all time that are in movies. It's friggin' hilarious, but watch somewhere where people won't get offended by bad language. Trust me...
