Re: TD 195: The Beautiful Game

9. The United States are wearing red jerseys at this World Cup. This is the first time we've seen the Yanks in red at the World Cup since June 15, 1998, a 2-0 loss to Germany. (Incidentally, current USMNT coach Jürgen Klinsmann scored for Germany in that game.) Q: Name any nation that has worn a pre...

Re: TD 195: The Beautiful Game

Alright, after having been absconded to the Nashville area, I'm back and actually able to post updates. 7. The Olympic Games still hold a men's soccer tournament every year. Currently the teams that are fielded are made up of players under the age of 23, with three overage players allowed. Curiously...

I'm going to apologize for my slowness lately; I got whisked off to a bachelor's party and am currently 500 miles from home. But I'm going to try and finish up shortly!

Re: TD 195: The Beautiful Game

6. It's been said that the most nervewracking spectacles in soccer is deciding a match with a penalty shootout. For the losers, it's forever the question of what might have been. For the winners, it's a sigh of relief and (usually) preparation for the next opponent. Q: Name any country that's won at...

Re: TD 195: The Beautiful Game

Now before we get to question five, a scoring change to announce. We had accepted Norway as a team in the top 50; I double-checked the last rankings and found I had misread them, and that they are 55th. Thus, I must rule goforthetie incorrect and his score for that question goes from a 1 to a 10. Th...

Re: TD 195: The Beautiful Game

4. Major League Soccer has started its 19th season. It's come a long way since the ten teams that contested the first MLS season in 1996; part of this is due to the existence of "Designated Players" - players whose salaries only partially count against the salary cap. The first of these players was ...

3. The World Cup is usually held amongst the best teams in the world. But with only 32 spots available for the over 200 countries in the world, there are great squads that just did not make the cut.

Re: TD 195: The Beautiful Game

I'm going to add a clarification when it comes to country names. FIFA does realize that countries sometimes change names, divide, join, that sort of thing. When that happens, they tend to designate a successor state. For example, when the Soviet Union split into its constituent parts, FIFA designate...

Re: TD 195: The Beautiful Game

I don't know most of these, so that's problem one, but I plan to enter anyway. But I think my lack of soccer knowledge is hurting me in another way (or more likely just block headed ness). Substitutions replace the worst starters, but starters that are "sent off" are not eligible for substitution. ...
