    Jaykoz makes an excellent point. Reluctant thread starters shouldn't throw thread requests.

    Congrats France.
    Well done Croatia.

    Ha no way is the US going to make it to a World Cup final against France, and lose, while Trump is president.

    It was obvious that it was organized and a protest of some sort. Was it actual members? I can't imagine them being allowed entrance.

    Also, they ruined the game.

    I have never started a Toast Thread before August.

    But first we need a qualifying toast thread, right?

    So you’re saying we’re likely to win in Qatar because

    A) Trump is president and we don’t play France in the final

    or

    B) Trump isn’t president and we beat anyone from the field

    I like A)’s chances.

    And, discover that the bikini shots are of a look-alike photo model.

    Some are the look-alike, and some are Ice-T's wife Coco.

    Part of me thinks, you are referring to Moscow, Idaho.

    Hope you had fun.

    How about a "Put them out of their misery" thread? (A/k/a, the Rapids forum.)

    I'm not going to demean the Toast Thread by starting it early just to talk about the Rapids.

    As Lee Corso would say, "Not so fast, my friend!". France have never had 3 consecutive successes or failures when it comes to the World Cup.

    1990 and 1994--didn't qualify
    2014 and 2018--quarterfinalists and champions

    From 1998-2010, France waffled between excellent and shambolic in alternating Cups. So, if les Bleus are to win it all in 2022, they will indeed have broken a trend. It will be interesting to see if DeChamps stays on as head coach or if someone else will be prowling the French sideline four years from now.

    Has it ever been warranted before August? It seems fairly warranted now.

    That post should have posted a few hours ago before the internet went out in my house for reasons still unexplained. The tv still worked. I think something happened to the modem, but it has magically re-set itself after I was on the phone for an hour.

    Might be more warranted if Seattle loses today ...

    You just outed yourself.

    If Seattle loses today, they'll be 12 points out of playoff contention with 16 matches to play. San Jose is already 16 points back with only 15 matches to play. Colorado, 12 points back with 15 to play.

    So if you think Seattle warrants increased need for the Toast thread, then there's ALREADY a need.

    Get to work, boiiiiiiiiii.

    This is Ismitje. He's rarely confused.
