I managed a pub in Liverpool, England for a while. Ever second punter would ask me if I was a "Red" (Liverpool) or a "Blue" (Everton) fan? My standard response was " No, soccer is a great game for keeping women fit in Australia but it is dead boring".
How long did you manage to keep that job? Although I suppose it'd be safer than saying you were a Man Utd fan!!!
probably an insurmountable language barrier....

Thankfully it was one of Liverpool's premier real ale pubs so it tended to attract beer nerds (think trainspotter) but we did have one of those old school scousers, I can still remember his order.

How many millions were made very happy?

And

The Germans were not all that crushed. I was a huge huge victory without anyone really feeling the pain of defeats d those folks were super super happy.

So. If the best moment is based upon how much joy it provided?? I choose when the kick went in the goal.

Or even the half hour of sheer joy that followed
except Soccer has no place in the Olympics, in my book.
You realize you've just been banned from the British Isles and likely most of Europe (which are no longer the same thing anymore - haha) for using the term "soccer".
The what?

"Soccer" is a British word. It comes from an abbreviation of the British "Association Football" and the Brit tendency to add "-er" onto words.

Football, gimme a break? So the host nation wins. BFD

Four years work and it ends in a russian roulette style penalty shootout. That is plain fucking retarded.

Golden point is the only way - keep fucking playing until some fucker scores or they all drop to the turf with exhaustion. No matter how long it takes.

Or drop the stupid game from the Oly's altogether.
The "They should play til they drop" is the sort of attitude couch potatoes have.

One highlight must have been the French marathon walker that shat himself while he was leading, then passed out only to get back up again and finish the race!
