    Not even apples and oranges, its apples and watermelons. Hitting a baseball may be the single most difficult acts of hand/eye coordination in any upper level athletic competition. But that's not what makes baseball a cerebral game. And it doesn't change the fact that 90% of the time in baseball involves players standing around, scratching their nuts, spitting sunflower seed shells and generally doing nothing worth watching.

    That's crazy. It's like if LeBron is setting up for a shot with the clock ticking dpwn and the refs letting it count if he makes it after time expires.

    He allows due to the leading side's delay tactics.

    I liked it. Don’t let them fool you, we have no idea what an offense looks like anyway.

    I got France in the company pool and this game sure does seem like you win this one, you will win it all.

    I think Belgium wins but pulling for France. They have some really great talent
