The result was quite disappointing but damn that was a helluva match. Definitely lived up to the hype and hopefully won over the hearts of the extra thousands who showed up either to see what soccer is about or Euro fans giving MLS a chance.

Yeah he is amazing at getting the ball over a wall and making it drop quick enough to be on-target. Plus, Busch's face was all busted up so Becks didn't have to worry too much about beating him.

Yeah Wondos flick was pretty damn impressive. I had a really hard time being mad... I mean, I was steaming but not as much as I should have been. That was pure quality and the only way any defender would have had a chance to block that would have been pure luck of being in the right place at the right time.

As far as Becks goes... well, it's a rivalry match that was very back-and-forth with rough play and a feverish atmosphere. Couple that with his snub from the Great Britain Olympic squad and his tendency to be drawn to conflict....

There was also some stellar keeper work. Bingham made an impressive stop against a wicked Magee shot that was curling hard to the far-post, and Saunders at least kept LA in the match with his three-in-a-row save (two of which he started on the ground!!!)

I think it's a shame they didn't pick Beckham for the GB squad. To me, at least, the Olympics should still more about fun and playing the game rather than winning. Preferably they would be playing amateur players that love the game rather than all this professional crap that has dominated since they allowed professionals. Since that basketball "Dream team" thing, and how the sportsmen in the high profile sports are now more or less professional, I find myself watching more and more minority sports in the Olympics. The people who are in it because their chosen sport is their life, not their pay check.

Sorry, I guess this was the wrong thread for that rant!

Not the wrong thread... I completely agree. Last summer games I found myself rooting for the lone Trinidadian athlete who was competing in kayaking because that's what the olympics are really about: everybody gets a chance to shine in front of the entire world, even the little guys. He won bronze, IIRC.

Anybody watching the Euro final on XBOX ESPN? I'm watching it supposedly live, and all of the sudden a score alert flashes showing a goal supposedly a minute in the future!

Switching topics, Seattle Defense is really starting to frustrate me. We made New England look great yesterday. I know we've pulled out quite a few games in stoppage time for our own befenfit, but man it stings when it happens to you. I went from being so happy that we had most likely broken our longest no win slump to wanting to pull my hair out when I started seeing the defense and midfield pull back to bunker up when they should have been attacking the ball. I'm curious to see if Schmidt makes any big changes. We need help back there. It was nice to see Johnson get some headers in though.
