Soccer only needs to become the #1 sport in one major state for us to compete. And that will happen in Florida or California. Soccer is HUGE out here because the hispanic population. Florida has a population of 27 million I believe and thats more than a lot of European countries.

 

Croatia has 4.2 million people.  Insanity

 

USA has 26 states with more than that

Im with edjr. With enough practice and an able body you can become pretty damn good at anything.

Not going to argue which is more difficult, but I think it would be entertaining to see a group of Geeks do the following:

 

1) Take 10 swings against an MLB pitcher

2) Take 10 attempts at trying to save a PK against a professional soccer player

 

I would pay to watch it.

 

if you just walk out there without practicing, sure, you'd suck at both.

 

i've said it numerous times. If you had the time to practice, you can do anything

Irrelevant. They were all in pre-flop, right?

 

It's only irrelevant if they lay all 5 cards down at once and don't do streets.

 

when he was sitting there with one card to go, you think he thought it was a flip?

 

before the flop he was a coin flip, after it he was crushed

Stop. Just stop. I have been hearing the same old bullcrap song and dance for 20 years now. Soccer is NEVER going to replace ANY of the big 4. EVER. For a very simple reason. American male athletes play soccer in youth leagues. Once they start to get older and bigger they realize that soccer is for girls and for kids who have peanut allergies. You are left with the cream of the crop of pansies. Which are still pansies. 

 

you and people that think like you are the reason MLB and the NFL will fail in your lifetime

#6266940 Things your parents did when they were kids

Posted by edjr on 17 July 2018 - 08:45 AM

if this is the game I am thinking of, I played this as well.  Throw the ball off the steps..grounder past the defense was a single...over their head on the fly was an HR....etc etc.

 

I destroyed a couple screen doors playing this game I was a kid.

 

If you hit the step right on the corner, the tennis ball always went for a HR

 

we called it "outs"

This is it in a nutshell... People born in the internet age have no patience and need things over quickly...

 

a soccer game is 90 minutes +10 for extra time and a 15 minute half time.

 

2 hours is the perfect length for a sporting event.

 

NFL is 3:15 with 100 commercials and 11 minutes of actual play

 

MLB is 3:10

 

NHL is 2:20

 

NBA is 2:15

 

 

NBA is the only league that has seen increased ratings in the past few years.

#6263154 WSOP M.E. 2018 - FInal table bubble cooler of all time. Have to see to believe.

Posted by edjr on 12 July 2018 - 12:04 PM

Those guys with the KK's must have wanted to puke when they saw the cards. 

 

Labat, who was the last guy to call with KK, is a stooge. This isn't a home tournament when people go all in with A7 off.

 

This was to decide who would make the final table. No way, no how can you ever make that call., you have to know someone has AA or even AK (which is far less likely), can't chance your tournament life there, after 2 all ins before your turn.,

 

I know it';s not easy to lay KK down, but you at that point, it has to be done

 

 

here are the payouts for the final table.

 

 

2018 Main Event Payouts
 
1st: $8,800,000
2nd: $5,000,000
3rd: $3,750,000
4th: $2,825,000
5th: $2,150,000
6th: $1,800,000
7th: $1,500,000
8th: $1,250,000
9th: $1,000,000

 

 

he ended up with 650k
