even more out of control is the first round wimbledon match between isner and mahut. it is the longest match in history by a large margin (over 10 hours and still going). it has been suspended twice already due to darkness and will go into the third day of play tomorrow. they dont play a tie breaker in the fifth set at wimbledon, so you have to win the final set by 2 games. right now the score in the fifth and decisive set is 59-59!!!!!! i am bummed i got all caught up in soccer and have missed so much of this so far.

I'm the same Nanners, I usually detest watching football but there have been some games where I have found myself getting engrossed and cheering the teams on!
I think everybody thinks I've gone loopy because I have been watching some of it!!! Maybe I should blame it on the medication!!!! hahahaha

Did you hear about the university in Bangladesh that had to shut because the younger students came pretty close to a full-blown riot because they wanted an early end to exams so they could watch the soccer, and the older students and the university admin wouldn't agree to let them do it?

I admit I am not a soccer/football fan. I only watch when the womens team goes far in a match (Abby Wambach is from my area). But, now that the mens team has moved on, I may watch the last two minutes of the next match (same as I watch basketball). A Buffalo indoor soccer player saved my brothers life 27 years ago so I do still pay attention to the scores in any indoor soccer game.

I still say shorten and narrow the field by a few feet and throw a few more balls out there and I may watch more regularly (admittedly too hung up on the speed of hockey to understand soccer pace). But man those guys have great legs...ooops off track now.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa, cholestyramine, iron and vitamin supplements.

Well... I would like hockey more if I could actually see the "ball". It's so fast. Even in the slow motion it's still hard to see.

Maybe it's just myopia.

Soccer is all about spectation, tension and extase.
