Couldn't have picked a better week to get sick.


Will you also be sick on Tuesday, March 5 for RM vs. MU? *

He is brutal. I have no idea what's going on in the game. I have no idea how Criqui gets picked on and this Krusty the Clown commentator gets a pass


Were you watching the game as well?

I like Gus just for the entertainment value. I can enjoy him while getting nothing from a PbP perspective when watching on TV. I can't imagine he's that great at PbP for soccer because he's new to it and it doesn't really lend itseld to his style. If you were just listening, I have no clue why you expected to know what was going on from TV PbP.

That being said, Criqui gets picked on now because he is awful. He does radio PbP like he's on TV. He did the ND/UConn women's bball game on TV and was absolutely horrendous in any context. He needs to retire.


Complete Agreeance

I looked forward to Gus announcing when it was first announced...but he is terrible at calling the beautiful game. There are stretches during the games when his partner in the booth is wishing that Johnson would say something to be commented upon.


I muted the TV, plugged my computer into my sound system...

And pushed buttons on this all game. I really enjoyed pressing "2 TIE 3 WIN" every time Arsenal had possession in the final 15 minutes.

It took only seven minutes for the inevitable to happen.

Usmanov is in attendance. I suspect he could find plenty of villagers to storm the gates.

Goal -- Podolski at the 55 minute mark.

Bayern had gone over 11 hours of play without giving up a goal.


Looks like Neuer
