        All that running back and forth during the game must have warmed me up, Chica. Since it really didn’t matter who won, I was giving advice right and left, and yelling ‘Doofus’, “Pass the ball”, ‘Challenge them for goodness sakes!’, “Don’t lead them back to your goal, doofus!’ etc. etc. at whomever I thought merited it. It was FUN! 🙂

          “Don’t lead them back to your goal, doofus!”

          😆 Manchester United should have hired you as their new manager!!!

            Is the pay any good? They still can if they’ll provide airfare over, living expenses, and time off to check out Moneygall.

              Well, the fella who, outrageously, got the job instead of you will earn around $12 million a year – would that have tempted you?

                I’ll go start packing! As my agent please be aware that I’ll settle for less than half that, if they meet my other previously stated requirements.

      Only appropriate that the ‘quiet one’ is 1st on the USA Victory thread!! 🙂

        🙂 Truly, my reputation would have been shattered in your eyes if you could have seen me in action during the game. Football is the one game that brings out the not-so-quiet side of me, hence I don’t watch very often.

        Bob, I asked a question about PBO’s actions on Syria in the previous page which I wonder if you could answer. I was reading an article by Michael Tomasky and he says this “…Now, there are things to criticize Obama about here, goodness knows. His mishandling of the Syrian crisis—probably the most catastrophic and consequential error of his presidency, in my view—helped give rise to ISIS.”. My question is, what did PBO do re: Syria to give this impression that it was an error. I must have missed something because I thought he did it right. What is your perspective if you don’t mind sharing with me? Thanks.

    “Mr. Bush did say there would be more violence if the United States left too early. But he let military commanders set the timetable (as was reasonable) and military commanders suggested the end of 2011. Mr. Bush began the drawdown in September of 2008, at the tail end of his presidency.

    After Mr. Obama took office the following January, he urged Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to sign an agreement allowing America troops to stay on longer than Jan. 1, 2012. But those talks fell through and the military recommended withdrawing as scheduled.

    In 2011, Defense Secretary Robert Gates (a Republican who served under both Bushes) said Iraq would face security problems after a U.S. withdrawal. But, he pointed out, “it’s a sovereign country. And we will abide by the agreement, unless the Iraqis ask us to have additional people there.”

    The Iraqis did not ask, and U.S forces withdrew. Mr. Obama did his best to clean up a huge mess left by his predecessor (and Iraq was far from the only one). To heap all the blame on him now is partisan hackery.”

    Just polled by Gallup—-asked every kind of question known to man—–felt like 100’s of them. I took the time because I want to see MY opinions reflected in the poll——most seemed to be trying to get current mood about everything.

    I saw most of the US and Ghana’s match at home. After that perfect header to push the US ahead, I went to the grocery shop located at the entrance to my street. Everyone there was rooting for Ghana and I alone supported the US. No one was happy with me; according to them, I should be in Ghana’s corner because of my history, dark complexion and kinky hair. I told them I would find my roots for Ghana’s next match, but against the US, neighbourly connection takes precedence.

    Congratulations Team USA!

    Congratulations USA!!!! Hubby is happy, he couldn’t take a losing to Ghana for a 3rd time. I wish I knew how to “drink”, I could use something strong :).
