I didn't bother staying up for *that*.

Soccer IMHO has a single fatal flaw - it's too hard to score. So a game between two evenly matched teams will often turn on something random, like a poor refereeing decision. I would like to see an expected team score of about 10 to 15, instead of 1 or 2.

Note that I don't have a good mechanism for doing this...

Well, you do have a local team

So you're supporting New Zealand and whoever's playing Australia ?

Swans are incredibly fierce, dangerous and capable of killing you with a wing strike, and the species around here drive semanticists crazy...

The US got bailed out against England with an impossible-odds fluke goal. But we'll take it! Wasn't our fault

Getting out of group play would be nice...
