    When I saw him he had an arrow quiver full of drum sticks. As sticks broke, he'd grab another one without missing a beat. When he ran out of sticks, he started playing with his hands, then his head.

    Of course every list is subjective and parts always seem to be more about popularity than talent. Carl Palmer is the best rock drummer I ever saw (and I saw Keith Moon, #2). And he's not even on...

    In the same vein as the media coverage of Felix, I don't I've ever heard any commentary of Vashti where they don't mention who her father is. At this point, it seems like she should be considered a...

    So, no Laura Roesler or Brenda Martinez? I think they both ran some indoor earlier this year.

    While USA dominated most of the 1st half, they are starting to get frustrated. While not as much as in hockey, a hot keeper can lead to beating a superior team. That's how the USA beat Brazil in...

    I initially thought White was also offside when it was played back to her, but you're right, she wasn't. Just watched it again. I withdraw my complaint.

    Look at the play leading up to the foul in question, England was offside.

    I'm glad the penalty kick was stopped, but England was offside, should never have looked to determine if it was a penalty in the first place.

    I actually hadn't remembered saying Germany could lose. Going into it, out of the 4 quarterfinals, I thought Germany was the least likely to be upset, but in the end they were the only ones who...

    I actually think the technical skills of the women's game have vastly improved in recent years; better fundamentals/better coaching. But yes, still a ways to go. The US yesterday were lucky to get...

    I dunno, the women's world cup announcers have been pretty good. They're definitely getting better. I haven't heard the idiot remarks that I still regularly hear from US track announcers.

    France shrugged and moved on (and maybe the worst VAR call so far). These are the tests you have to pass to win the cup.

    The offside was not called on the player not involved in the play, it was called on the player that received the pass (the back of one foot was offside). Still a very harsh call, but I agree with...

    In the 'olden days', they used to not give that wide latitude. I think it's gone too far the other way. In my mind, Lloyd was 'involved' in the play.

    Not sure if this helps, but the position of the ball is not the important part, its when the ball is played to you. So, in the instant the ball is kicked/passed ahead to you, you have to be onside,...

    Scotland out of the next round, but they'll get used to it. In the men's game, if the keeper can't move/anticipate, there's no way they can react fast enough to stop a penalty kick.

    At least give the goalies a small box to play from rather than a thin line. On the other hand, most coaches can't figure out how to stay in the coaches box, so maybe that won't work either.
