@Headbanger. Only bringing this up because you brought up CFL in the past and I ask you about Zach Collaros and if you had any info. I finally got to read about him in our local paper. I guess he's doing OK up there. He played (back-up QB) for Toronto Argonauts. He did get playing time and they did get a Grey Cup. Last year he got to start 7 games because of an injury to the starter and went 5-2 and set a CFL record for being first QB to win four straight road games. I'm not sure how good the Hamilton Tigercats are but they like him and signed him with a promise to compete for starter. I hope he does well. I can't guarantee my facts, our paper has been a little off before so if you ever hear about him please share.  Thanks.

True lol.
I was babysitting last night, and after the kids had gone to bed I found some Bundesliga on the television. Anyone who thinks soccer is slow and boring needs to watch this competition, holy shit it was fast paced and super skillful.

 NZ and AUS are both further up the rankings than Canada too.

At least Canada would make more sense than NZ, we're waaaay too small for the football world cup LOL! Mind you a joint hosting bid with Australia wouldn't be too silly, possibly problems with stadium size but it's easy to travel between NZ and Australia (further to travel from Perth to Sydney in Oz!!) and probably a shorter distance than some places in Brazil lol!

in the quest to have the WC in different countries they seem to be choosing bad candidates. Brazil lacked $$$, the USA lacked enthusiasm and real grass, next up is a place they cant even play during the standard time period due to heat. maybe change it up, do canada and do January....

HA! No, I hadn't heard. If it makes you feel any better, Brazil isn't anywhere CLOSE to being ready to host! The storm inside the airport IN Rio (with no air meaning 120F temps) was just but one example. As i told someone at work today, I am glad to be here during the Copa. They have missed most of their deadlines, their insfrastructure for moving people around the country is a mess and there are massive manifestations in the streets from the impoverished who are being forced to erect 80,000 people stadiums in towns of 30,000.

A zoo, to say the least. I am glad to have made my small comtribution by buying an official FIFA ball.

 Did you see the news that Canada is going to bid for 2026?  what a freaking joke.  we might have 2 stadiums that can seat 60k, not one that can seat 80, and we are rankied 111 in the world.  seriously, is that the only way we can get into a finals?

at least most people in Brazil know what soccer is.

NOBODY watching the Sharapova match?!? 120F+ on the court, third set 9 - 8! Hell, even the men's matches were shut down because of the heat. Sharapova breaks to serve it out! 3:22 minutes! Longest match so far in the hottest day so far!
[guidogodoy] Tuesday, January 14, 2014 9:04:17 PM 
Serena certainly rolled her opponent. Only took her about an hour as well. 6:1;6:2.
[guidogodoy] Tuesday, January 14, 2014 2:22:20 AM 
Cricket? Why, that is just a little bug. Do you race them or rate them on how loud they chirp or something?

Yes. I think Venus is done. 33 years old (I know it because my little bro was born a few days after her), =  over the hill. I saw the replay and am surprised she even took a set.

@Headbanger.

...just saw your post about watching the CFL. Have you heard of Zach Collaros. I think(?) he plays for the Toronto Argonauts. I don't think he started the season but I know he started a couple of games due to injury. (quarterback). I think he had a couple of good games but I haven't heard anything since. He was the quarterback for Steubenville Big Red (Ohio Highschool) going 30 - 0 as a starter with back to back state championships. Local hero of course. I saw him play his last game in college in Pittsburgh. Come from behind victory over the homestanding Pitt Panthers. Great game.

...any thing you can tell me?

[METALMANJP] Monday, December 09, 2013 8:54:38 AM 

Yeah, Michigan State deserved that game. And the Buckeye is Stupid !

Ok. interesting. MX is no where near as good on the road so your game should be half decent.

I dont like NFL either, but I do watch the CFL. some fairly significant rule differences. still more time spent not playing than playing though.

They're kind a level down, and you have to have at least 1/32nd (or 1/64th?) Maori blood to be selected. A couple of the Maori ABs have played for the actual ABs. If anyone is interested in an excellent game that was played this year, check out ABs vs South Africa from this year in Johannesburg, wasepic. American football can suck it compared to rugby, I loathe NFL.
Yep, trolling hard out Vail lol! Was especially bad during the game this morning, and it's continuing O.o acting like we are super sucky cos we lost 5-1 to them - um could it be because we are ranked 79th and they are ranked 24th? Not like it's much of a comparison. The game in Wellington next week should still be fun.

By some stroke of good luck, one local channel showed some of the Rugby World Cup matches a couple of years ago. It ain't easy to forget such an unusual (and awesome) pre-game ritual. Sadly, I don't think rugby will catch on here. 'Murican football still rules the weekend morning/afternoon TV timeslots. The same channel that showed those rugby matches is currently showing some Premier League matches, so not all is lost.

The Mexican fans are trolling the All Whites FB page?!?!? HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 are the Maori all blacks a different level than the all blacks, like a feeder club, or do you have a national club and a indigenous national club?

saw the Maori all blacks play a canadian team a week or so ago.  we didnt do so well, but it was interesting.  havent watched any rugby in years now.

No they don't do the haka which is good in a way as it can be overdone a bit. I'm actually a little surprised you know who the All Blacks are lol! They are the most recognisable rugby team in the world, but rugby isn't big in the USA. Mind you the NZ Maori All Blacks (Maori are our indigenous people) played the USA on the weekend and it was an excellent game, the Eagles played very well!
The good thing about NZ being in this position is they have nothing to lose, so whatever happens happens lol. I have heard Mexico have been dreadful lately, but all you can go by is the one game. All that matters is what happens on the day. It's funny, Mexican fans are trolling the All Whites (the name of our soccer team, cos they wear a white uniform) facebook page, but because most of them are posting in Spanish (rather than the rest posting in ok english, or google translate english lol) no one knows what they're on about lol.

 Beating mexico in the Azteca is a serious task.  I can hope for NZ, but seriously, you might as well hope to find a winning loto ticket.

Personally, I'm don't have much hope in Mexico winning this playoff. But then again, weirder things have happened at the Azteca. Seriously, just how stinkin' lucky (or maybe unlucky) can they get with getting this far in their current condition?

Say, does the NZ soccer team do that whole pre-game Maori war dance/chant thing like the All Blacks do? That'd be cool to see. It would definitely scare the crap out of El Tri.

Sorry to say as does NZ against MX. Then again, I am certainly playing favorites!

Getting nervous, tomorrow is the first of two 2014 World Cup qualifiers between NZ and Mexico! Tomorrows game is at the Azteca, so it's going to be a big game for our boys but I am hoping they pull something out of the bag. We'll be at the second match next week in Wellington, can't wait.

@Guido,maybe because he used to leave his starter in so long and got caught more than once with a tired pitcher , he has gone too far the other way , .197 Victorino was batting, he got the big hit before fielder did!!!! that was all the difference
