From The Beautiful Game, A TRULY GREAT SOCCER COMMERCIAL:
Something about soccer just seems to lend itself to brilliant commercials.

And since it's Sunday and nobody cares, herewith my all time favorite:
From Reuters, one of the weirdest situations I can recall:
SAN MARTIN CAN WIN THE PERUVIAN LEAGUE OUTRUGHT TODAY: but only if they lose.
I can hear Jim Rome now.
Two of them are, of course, pretty obvious for any North American fan, but the others are a mystery.
If David Beckham says "I'll be back with the Galaxy in the Spring" just one more time, some people may be forced to believe him.
I can't wait to hear Steve "Send Me A T Shirt" Cohen backtrack on that one. After saying, unequivocally and maybe 1000 times that "you'll never see him again" it'll be pretty hard.
And of course "I was wrong" isn't a constuct he'll have the manparts to muster.
I'm sure I don't completely understand what the Google Zeitgeist is, but whatever is, I'm totally shocked that CHIVAS CAME IN THIRD.
Maybe somebody can explain it to me.
Speaking of Chivas, Sasha Kljestan is APPARENTLY A HOT COMMODITY overseas.
At the least, him ending up playing in Europe would mean that I can stop having to sturggle with spelling "Kljestan".
