To celebrate Chile's victory yesterday, we're gonna leave Gabriela Barros on the front page for one more day. Any complaints??? If so, click to enlarge and I KNOW you will appreciate what we do for YOU!!!
Gonna head up to Montreal and take a position on the USA/Germany semi-final. Obviously, we will be rooting our cleats off for the Stars & Stripes, but when you are playing the #1 team in the world, Germany, the outcome could be trouble. So, we have decided to play the over/under total, and go OVER two goals. Here's why. Die Nationalelf (The National Eleven) have the MOST most dangerous attack in the world. They have scored more goals (20) than any other team in the World Cup. Of course our girls have conceded just once, but they'll need to score at least a couple if they wanna advance to the final. And if history is any indication, this total should FLY over. In 1991, the teams met in the Cup semi-finals, and the Red, White & Blue rocked the German's world with a stunning 5-2 victory. In 1999, the USA posted a 3-2 W over the German girls, and in 2003, Germany got a little payback, defeating the Stars & Stripes, 3-0. So, three meetings and a total of 15 goals. Don't even need the calculator to tell me that it computes to an average of 5 goals per game. So, this becomes a big bang for Ecks & Bacon, and you gotta gimme a full Benjamin on the OVER.
Chile pulled out a sweet 2-1 victory over Peru yesterday, and we picked up a full Benjamin. However, we had to give back half a Benj on the draw wager, so it was just a +$50 for the day. That sliced the soccer figure to -$305 heading into tonight's action.
