Hopefully there won't have to be any tie breakers for the tie breakers.

rbnlaw said...

Damn regulatory body. Rejecting our handball appeal.

Well, I'll give it boot in 40 min.

Scott said...

I can kick these right through the posts. My resume: Soccer style kicker graduated from Collier High June 1976, Stetson University honors graduate class of 1980, holds 2 NCAA Division One records, one for most points in a season, one for distance, former nickname "The Mule," the first and only pro-athlete ever to come out of Collier County and one hell of a model American.

TD said...

Okay, is it time??

TD said...

It would appear that it is.

TD said...

Leg already tired......

TD said...

Damn white orb.....

TD said...

Last shot, be a good one....

TD said...

Fini....

Matt said...

I'm so nervous...

Matt said...

This is just like a game when I was 8.

Matt said...

A playoff game went to PK's

Matt said...

I got the last shot

Matt said...

I won that game too.

QuadSevens said...

Gotta love an Ace Ventura quote!

rbnlaw said...

Great, I go up against a ringer.

First kick from the spot. . .

rbnlaw said...

Upper left corner for a 7!!!!

Next shot. . .

rbnlaw said...

F me in the armpit. Hit the crossbar on the second shot.

Total a 7. I'll be watching from afar.

Josh S. said...

New rules, rbnlaw! You made three goals and you have two more kicks!

Steve Dittmore said...

Dusty - You really at the Capitol in DC? What do you do?

Oh yeah, shot 1.

Josh S. said...

Dusty scores 3, and is immediately tackled by Secret Service.

Steve Dittmore said...

Grading papers... college students frequently confuse "defiantly" with "definitely"

Steve Dittmore said...

Also, I'm a big fan of paragraphs that take up the whole page...

Steve Dittmore said...

It's odd how many people are scoring 3 out of 5 (60%) since EK read we'd have a 75% success rate.

Steve Dittmore said...

Made 2. Missed 2.

For a chance at the lightning round with Dusty... shot ...

Steve Dittmore said...

Are you f ricking kidding... 3 straight above 75?

Congrats Dusty...

rbnlaw said...

Freakin' rules. You expect me to read them?
Shot 4.

rbnlaw said...

0 for 4.

Shot 5: Beckham lines it up. . .

rbnlaw said...

1 for 5. Ain't gonna be no shutout.

Ha.

Scott said...

Wow, spotted rbnlaw to a nice lead while eating lunch...let's give this a whack.

rbnlaw said...

Sorry EK, I'm all discombobulated by the PK phase.
Looks like I went 4 for 5.

England rejoices. If only they had done that vs. Portugal about 4 years ago.

Scott said...

So my opponent nailed all five and I missed my first one. Guess the rest of these are moot!

Scott said...

Like my old surfing buddy Bodhi used to say before he went to surf Australia and never came back, 100% pure adrenaline!

fanerman said...

This is exciting stuff.

Scott said...

#5...

Jason said...

shot 1 left

Jason said...

shot 2 upper right

Jason said...

shot 3 low right

Jason said...

shot 4 upper right

Jason said...

shot 5 upper left

Jason said...

Perfect score. Looks like we need a tie-breaker in group A for the second seed.

TD said...

Donb't know if this is too late, too early. Beats the hell outta me.

TD said...

Do it continue?? Stop??

Matt said...

Sudden Death!

Matt said...

I need this one...

TD said...

So, now what??

Matt said...

We keep commenting until one person makes it and another misses

Matt said...

And I just did...damn

Scott said...

Well, if I'm keeping score correctly, I only made 3 to my opponent's 4 (I thought earlier he made all 5 but looks as if one shanked).

TD said...

Well, let me know how I'm doing then.

TD said...

I can just keep going..........

Jason said...

TD looks like you won the #2 seed on the 3rd sudden death PK. Well done.

Matt said...

Yeah, TD, you won. Good job...the upstart 4 seed goes home to cheers for lasting this long...and flies Delta, of course.

TD said...

Is that luck or what???

J. Steve said...

With this game, I don't think it's anything but luck. But maybe I'm just bitter because I didn't make it out of group play!

J. Steve said...

I'm curious to see what the Sons have planned for the Elite 8!

(I don't know what they're referred to in the World Cup, so I'll stick with what I know.)

Eric Karros said...

Sorry folks swamped at work, will read comments and update as soon as I get chance...

rbnlaw said...

@ Scott: Yes, one shot clanked. I attribute this shot to Ashley Cole and the bad mojo he carries since making a bad fashion decision. Blue is not the color.

Sorry DB, it's all I have.

Dusty Baker said...

How did I do?

Hurry so I can head to the back bar at the Mayflower for a cocktail.

Dusty Baker said...

Steve-

Capitol yesterday, WH today. I am a Dir of Govt Relations in LA County public health agency. So am in DC a lot to meet with elected officials, twist their arm, then go heckle Nationals fans.

Eric Karros said...

Ok, posted results. Does they jive with your tabulations?

Eric Karros said...

Well, does they?

Steve Dittmore said...

Dusty - nice gig... I am working on a manuscript detailing government involvement with college football and listened to the House Subcommittee markup of HR 390 yesterday (I'm sort of a geek)... So while you were in Rayburn, I was listening to something happening in Rayburn.

Anyway... good luck in the Elite 8.

fanerman said...

I don't understand what happened in Group A. Why was there sudden death when Jason went 5/5?

Josh S. said...

fanerman, Jason advances automatically with his 5/5. The sudden death was because there was still a tie for the 2nd seed.

fanerman said...

Ah, thanks.

rbnlaw said...

You have rookie upstart Steve Dittmore as going through when DB beat him 3-2.

Sorry, Prof. Dittmore. It was a good run.

Steve Dittmore said...

rbnlaw - I figured if UEFA can have some match fixing scandals, the Sons can too!

Carry the Deltalina flag proudly...

Eric Karros said...

Thanks rbn, corrected. Sorry Prof -

Dusty Baker said...

Stevie D-

I understand that, despite my English ancestry, I was able to win passage to the next round on PKs. I only regret that it was against such a worthy opponent and trusted SoSG colleague.

Perhaps we can team up and I can do some lobbying to have some language on pitiful SEC officiating inserted into the bill on college football to which you refer.

Dusty Baker said...

are we supposed to be doing anything on this today? flying home but need to know if i need to changed my flight so i can make PK comments as needed.
