more faking in the NBA anyway. phony charges, anyone?
@Kyle loves BYU/Jazz,Wrong. The only reason baseball players don't
flop much is because they don't get much opportunity, because they go weeks at a
time with no occasion for physical contact. But Derek Jeter did take a dive
(faked being hit by a pitch when he wasn't), and people complained for about one
day's news cycle, and then he went back to being Derek Jeter.There's
nothing to that argument but pure hypocrisy. The most ironic part being that
the 'toughguy' aspect is only ever brought up by faker wannabes in the first
place, so you'd think they'd appreciate the faking.
Hopefully the comments made by the mexican coach will fire up RSL. RSL has a chance to really stick it to the mexican and international media
tomorrow. Nobody gave us a chance at winning this thing. I think
its pretty cool how the season ticket holders bought out the game to ensure that
there would not be a significant monterrey fan base. I bought a 10 pack which
allowed me to purchase 4 tickets for the game. Thank you RSL for protecting our
house!ole ole ole oleee reeeeal salt laake! get the singing going
RSL dragged in the second half in Mexico because it was 90 degrees and humid!
Wait until Monterrey has to play at a hostile Rio Tinto stadium in 40 degrees
and high altitude conditions. Having the second leg at home is a HUGE advantage
and scoring 2 goals on the road was massive as well. The Claret and Cobalt all
but have this thing wrapped up! Japan here we come!
Oh let me in on this baseball v soccer debate!Here is my argument on
why baseball is not a real sport.There is no other "sport"
besides golf that players can play day after day after day. for like 5 days in
a row. Why is that? Because it doesn't require athletic ability or stamina.
Hitting a 90 mile and hour fastball is like getting an eagle in
golf. Sure it's hard to do but look at all of the fat out of shape
"athletes" doing it. Give me a sport where the players
are using their fat(football) or give me a sport that requires a person to be in
peak physical condition.(soccer, basketball ect. ect.) Baseball
players are good athletes if golfers are good athletes.The beauty of
soccer is that everyone can play it. But not everyone can play it well.
Redirecting and 80 mile an hour cross with your head into a pocket about 4 feet
high 2 feet wide. Or try it with your feet or your hands.
I'm pumped for tomorrow night. I really hope we can finish off the proud
Mexican club team and win the continental title! How amazing that an
international championship is going to be decided in our backyard.
@BMW - exactly, you can play soccer almost anywhere! This is why soccer is the
most popular sport in the world!
Yeah and putting a glove on your head sure makes it even more water proof maybe
getting hit by the hail was the reason they put their gloves on their head.
Whatever station did a news report on baseball players putting their gloves on
their heads must be pretty pathetic.As far as trying to make an
argument that soccer players are tough, a sport known for players diving will
never be considered a tough guy sport. I'm not saying it it isn't tough or a
real sport but your argument against baseball is especially silly.I'm going out of town tomorrow morning but I wish I could be around to watch
the game tomorrow night. I'm sure it will be an exciting one.
@Kyle loves ZoobsTheir hats aren't waterproof, genius. I'm just
reporting what I saw on the news. Real men, those baseball players.
re: Brave Sir RobinUmm baseball players already wear hats bud, I
don't think they needed their mits to keep their hair from getting wet.Good luck to RSL tomorrow night!
RSL also showed what it can do for periods of time. The crowd will give them the
boost they need.
@BMWYesterday I watched two highlight videos. The first was of a
soccer player in Seattle by the name of Steve Zakuani getting his leg snapped in
half (tibula and fibula) by a hard tackle.The second video was of
Salt Lake Bees players scampering off the field in a hailstorm, their gloves on
top of their heads so they wouldn't get their hair wet.Please, tell
me more about how soccer isn't a real sport...
Remember if your going to go to the game wear red and be there early so we can
get that stadium rocking.
WOW! you can almost tell by the number of comments how popular soccer (futbol)
is in Utah. To bad it ain't a real sport.Give me a dirt field and a tin
can and you'll see a soccer game for free.
