Great Run!

Awesome game. Every one of their games was a nailbiter.
Goes against everything I've ever said about soccer,
and there have been many things. What a great bunch
of guys.  I'm gonna go cry now.


  1. I'm glad there was no shoot out to resolve a tie.

    I my view a shoot-out is an abominable way to break a tie in fútbol. Better to have 30 minutes of sudden-death overtime. Then there would be one un-timed period of terminal play in which one player is removed every time the ball goes out of touch. Eventually, very shortly, I believe, a result would emerge. In the meantime, you would be treated to some spectacular displays of passing. That would be a greater spectacle than putting the goalie in a shooting gallery, and truer to the sport.

    I've never been able to get much approval for this solution, especially among fans who have made a study of The Great Game. But, I'm right!

  2. Let me be the first to approve! You're obviously more passionate than I am about soccer, but lately I've been lovin it. Good idea!
