    Dear TODers, need advice. Tomorrow’s World Cup game b/n USA and Ghana tests my loyalties. What should I do?

      Go for the sure winner. Love my USA but Ghana is going to mop the floor with them.

      • June 15, 2014 at 7:36 pm

        Ha! Altidore thinks having beaten Nigeria in the recent friendlies, that US now has the formula to avenge their 2 previous losses to Ghana at 2006 & 2010 World Cups. We’ll see :) :)

      have a tee shirt with one of the teams on either side and have both flags ready;

      caution: I was almost thrown out of the shared TV-room in my freshman dorm when I danced around celebrating a brilliant shot from one African team versus the USA

      Who’s got the oldest players? I’m rooting for them? :-)

        No… What am I saying?

        Go USA! Gotta go with my home team

        But I like Ghana and Ghanians though, so I’ll cheer for green a smidge here and there!

        How’s that for futbol diplomacy? :-D

      ‘Possible’ being the key word for now…let’s see what happens

    • 39 Nena20409

      Nope. When Crude was $141, it topped at $4.19 in my area and at about $5 something nationwide.

      To get to $6 per gallon, it would have to hit well over $141 as it did in the summer or so of 2008.

        141??? Prove to me it was 141? I think it got up to 123!

          Despite that gas gouging is happening. Gas should not be near 4 bucks right now. It’s 1.03 per barrel.
          Crazy!

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Price_of_petroleum

          The price of oil underwent a significant decrease after the record peak of US$145 it reached in July 2008. On December 23, 2008, WTI crude oil spot price fell to US$30.28 a barrel, the lowest since the financial crisis of 2007–2010 began, and traded at between US$35 a barrel and US$82 a barrel in 2009.[3] On 31 January 2011, the Brent price hit $100 a barrel for the first time since October 2008, on concerns about the political unrest in Egypt.[4]
          //////

          Pardon me…..It git as high as $145.

          I was going by memory earlier.

            But price gouging. In the US, 116 now means 6 bucks. My gas is currently 359 a gallon and it’s 103 per barrel.
            Trust me it goes up to 116 u will see a significant increase in gas.
            Gas in 08 was 1.79 after the crash.
            It’s crazy!

              Join the rest of the world Jovie – we’ve been paying above $6/gallon since forever – heading towards $8

    • June 15, 2014 at 8:39 pm

      Watch what happens to the price of oil when President Obama announces a cooperative effort with Iran and Saudi Arabia ;)

      So? Rest of the world pays more than that right now.

      You want instant solutions in Iraq. Not.Gonna.Happen.

        You’re putting words in my mouth. I am just saying oil is the driver of this war and it will go up.
        OPEC has a deal with US to secure region and they give us cheap oil.
        That’s not happening anymore, so all I said was to expect oil to go up.
        Btw. New York oil and Europe and India oil are two different entities.
        Oil!
        Here we go again!
        Yew haw! :)

          June 15, 2014 at 9:00 pm

          what deal, jovie? US securing that region is a joke right?

          btw, oil is oil. Time to pay up the piper.

            Hehe!
            Never mind! :)
            I just know what I know.
            Big oil is pulling the strings here. The president is fighting them not ISIS!

    3peat for Heat? Sorry, No.

    Win for Duncan and Spurs, I believe so. They will end it today the way they have been playing. They seem a tad hungrier than the Heat.

    Good Luck, men. I have Zero game in either Team.

      Okay….it looks like Miami Heat might be a tad hungrier than the Spurs?

      OK so long as the game is Fun…..Lets PLAY Ball.

      NBA is Fantastic!

    As each hour passes and additional Iraqis are slaughtered it becomes ever more necessary to remind the world of the crime #SCOTUS committed on 12 Dec 2000.

    I’ve been to that Spurs arena in San Antonio, I was stationed at Lackland AFB for awhile.
    San Antonio is such a pretty city. :)

    There is a monk who goes to the same dentist as me. Last time I was there he was getting a root canal for which he refused lidocaine because he transcends dental medication.

    One thing you guys should know, nobody is happier that we are getting out troops out of Iraq.
    All I am saying is, big oil will fight back, they’re not just going to lie down.
    So, We better start using our own oil and get off of OPEC!
    Just saying!

    I wonder what would have happened if the celtics who had the worst record the year Duncan was drafted, got Duncan? Hmm!
